As Niero explained earlier, most of Destructoid’s readership fits into a certain demographic (male, American, boobs-in-face-phile). I’m part of that group myself, so I wasn’t terribly excited by the above video. It shows off about a minute of footage from Soulcalibur IV with two fights: Hilde (new character) vs. Raphael, and Sophitia vs. Voldo.
I mean, what else is there to say? The characters are duking it out in good-looking arenas, but really, I hope Hilde has an alternate costume that shows off more of her assets. We’ve already got Ashlotte as a rather flat-chested fighter, and she fills that quota (which is 1) nicely. I think that Voldo’s pre-fight stance (where he’s just standing there walking in place, doing his limb-twisting capoeira-esque thing) looks dumb, but hey, I’m not a Soulcalibur guy, so maybe people like that kind of thing.
Perhaps if Hilde removed her armor’s breastplate...
