The fighting game genre is back, and this year, it’s bigger than ever. With many of the major fighters expected to make a comeback this year, fans of the genre will have a lot to choose from. And many sore fingers.
1: Soul Calibur V
Starting the year off with a bang is Namco Bandai’s Soul Calibur V.The weapon based fighter’s return to the spotlight after a near four year absence paves the way for a big year ahead. Soul Calibur V takes place seventeen years after the fourth installment and introduces a new cast of younger fighters, while playing host to returning favorites.
Keeping up with a tradition that began with Soul Calibur II, the fifth game in the series includes special guest character Ezio Auditore da Firenze from Ubisoft’s acclaimed Assassin’s Creed franchise. Tekken creator, Katsuhiro Harada, also gets in on the fun as a special non-playable character in the game’s Quick Match mode. Namco is promising a better online experience with Soul Calibur V, with an improved netcode to prevent nasty lag issues.
Soul Calibur V is due out in North America on January 31st followed by a February 2nd and 3rd release in Japan and Europe, respectively.
After feeling a bit disappointed with Dynasty Warriors 6 (released for the PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2008), I had my doubts when Tecmo Koei announced the 7th game in the series late last year. Since the second game released for the PS2, Koei had offered little incentives for fans to remain interested in the franchise, which is based on Luo Guanzhong’s famous historical novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms. However, as more details about the Dynasty Warriors 7 surfaced, it was clear that this would be the series’ true next gen outing.
Just several days ago I alerted some of you that there was a new Dynasty Warriors 7 gameplay video and screenshots. Today I am here to give you some more of that screenshot goodness, hit the jump to look at several different shots from different points of the game.
We received word that there are a bunch of new assets out for Dynasty Warriors 7, and rightfully so, as the game is on the brink of release in North America. The game which has already released in Japan on the 10th of March, will be out across the global with a release in North America on the 29th of March and the 8th of April in the EU.
