Namco-Bandai have today announced that Ezio Auditore – known from the Assassin’s Creed series will be starring as the traditional “guest” fighter in Soul Calibur V. Previous installments have had the likes of Kratos from God Of War, Link from The Legend of Zelda and Darth Vader from Star Wars. This will be the first time however that Ezio will be playable on both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game.

Eizo will be able to utilise weapons seen in Assassin’s Creed such as his Roman Longsword, Stiletto, Crossbow, Hidden gun and trademark Hidden blade. Along with the guest announcement, Namco-Bandai have also revealed a new fighter – Dampierre.

Dampierre is the comical relief to the proceedings acting as a 1930s style comedian who can kick even the most serieous of arses. A cross between Wario and Dick Dastardly, Dampierre will only be available as a preorder bonus.

A host of new images have also surfaced as Soul Calibur V prepares to be released on 2nd Feburary. It will be hitting both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
