Project Soul wasn't ready to talk too many details about any new fighting systems, but we did spot a "special" gauge in the top corner of the screen. This new addition we're told is kind of like the "Critical Edge" system from Soul Edge. This is an indication, we're told, that the team hopes to tap into the essence of and the best of some of the older titles in the series. Photo Gallery: (10 images)
Regarding the roster, outside of the note that more than half the fighters would be fresh, they're not ready to announce them just yet. We saw four in action -- old faces Mitsurugi and Siegfried, as well as newcomers Patroklos and Pyrrha. Details on who else will be included will be revealed in the coming months. Whether the game will get console-exclusive fighters (Soulcalibur 4 for Xbox 360 featured Yoda, the PlayStation 3 got Darth Vader) is still up in the air, but the shifty glances and roundabout answers I got when I asked indicate there's something in the works.
Soulcalibur V is out next year.
