Ezio Auditore a guest fighter in Soulcalibur V?

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.
