Edge Master and Algol return for SoulCalibur V

SoulCalibur V image

Edge Master is a major character in the SoulCalibur series, despite only appearing in one game. He's constantly doing things and interacting with people in that background, but his role as a jack-of-all-trades fighter has been delegated to Charade in SoulCalibur II, Olcadan in SoulCalibur III, and absolutely nobody in SoulCalibur IV. He finally returns for SoulCalibur V, presumably with his "style" of using a random weapon each round.

The latest Famitsu magazine reports a few new details about SoulCalibur V, including the reveals of two returning characters.

Edge Master is a major character in the SoulCalibur series, despite only appearing in one game.

He finally returns for SoulCalibur V, presumably with his "style" of using a random weapon each round.

Also returning is SoulCalibur IV boss Algol. It's not clear if he'll be a boss this time or if he'll be nerfed and used as a regular fighter. Algol is another character who has secretly been important for a long time. Most people didn't know he existed until he appeared as the boss of SoulCalibur IV, but he's mentioned in a mythological background story published on the Project Soul website while SoulCalibur III was in development.

Famitsu also reveals two new modes. Quick Match for simple individual fights, and Legendary Souls mode, which sounds like a boss rush mode, making one wonder just how many bosses this game has.

SoulCalibur V hits North American on PS3 and Xbox 360 on January 31st.

Rhody likes to press the keys on his keyboard. Sometimes the resulting letters form strings of words that kind of make sense when you think about them for a moment. Most times they're just random gibberish that should be ignored. Ball-peen wobble glurk.
