It seems like all the major fighting franchises are making a revival in some form or way. One of the biggest in the fighting genre, Soulcalibur V, is on the way back too and I got to go hands-on with it. I really suck at fighting games, so here's some horrible shaky cam footage of me playing as Astaroth. I was doing good until the last match!
Thankfully, we sent out Wesley Ruscher in San Francisco earlier this month to preview Soulcalibur V who brought us a proper preview. I will at least say the game handles pretty well and looks pretty good visually.
