Requiescat in pace, Soulcalibur V.

Ezio Auditore, everyone’s favorite assassin, will enter the arena as a guest fighter in Soulcalibur V, if an assumed slip-up is to be believed.

Live blogging a San Francisco Soulcalibur V event, PS3Blog.net posted an image of a guest character unveil–Assassin’s Creed‘s Ezio Auditore–but shortly took it down. Not before the net could grab it, however.

The live blog also mentioned a release date of January 31, 2012, as ‘confirmed’ at the event.

At the end of their live blog, the site posted: “no further information can be released about this game due to the embargo surrounding the game itself.”

Put two and two together, and we can determine the Ezio guest character reveal was put up at a time when it wasn’t supposed to be.

Of course, consider this a rumor until Namco Bandai says anything official.

    That would actually be pretty cool even if I prefer Altair myself :).

    Though I don’t like guest stars Im more than ok with Ezio!

    Roger Craig Smith “must” do the voice over, or else someone gonna hear a fanboy rant :)

    I would rather them put Dante in (though I’m not a huge fan). He would fit nicely with the bizarre cast.

    Still good for AC fans.

    It certainly looks genuine. I think playing as Ezio would be really interesting a make a change from the usual roster.

    Ezio is absolutely perfect for Soul Calibur, I approve!

      @Prevailer: Thanks, just noticed.

      Yeah, every once and a while we’ll pick up a story and get linked to by the big guys.

    I’m not the biggest fan of AC but I think he will fit in just fine with the rest of the cast :)
