New Famitsu scans of Ivy’s bre– wait, sorry, Soul Calibur IV

Fists out, blades in with Bandai-Namco’s latest in their block-rockin’, sword-fighting saga Soul Calibur. While there’s been plenty of Ivy’s dirty pillows spread throughout the Nine Interwebs like locusts, these are most certainly the latest examples we’ve got of what to expect from the new game, showcasing the game’s breathtaking environments and revamped character designs. Siegfried, for example, looks like he got double-teamed by a disco ball and a railroad spike, and looks pretty damn cool besides.

Just a shame we won’t get to sink our teeth proper into the game at the big dance next week. Et tu, Namco? 

Oh, and before I forget: yeah, more Ivy. Good lord, you could hide a Goddamn Buick in there.
