Soul Calibur 5 combat is "lighter, sharper and more elegant"

Soul Calibur 5's fighting system is "lighter, sharper, and more elegant", according to Namco Bandai producer Hisaharu Tago, and you can expect more responsive performance during online play.

The story is too old to be commented.

It was already pretty "sharp" - any quicker and I'd struggle to keep up :p

Countless hours spent on the first Soul Calibur on Dreamcast. I cant wait for this game. Big fan of the series here.

Taki is beast but Mitsurugi not to be reckoned with.

I was a mean Voldo during the SoulBlade years.

I used to rock Hwang. Surgical ankle strikes FTW.

a generation shift can mean something hit or miss like third strike or mark of the wolves .. i hope they keep enough old characters on the cast

They will stay, most likely.
But for the series to evolve, things that aren't gameplay mechanics must change.

Look at Tekken, if you forget about the graphics, how are Tekken 3,4,5 and 6 showing the evolution of the series?

The only leap that happened was when they released Tekken 3, featuring a new generation of characters,and it was a great thing.

Soul Calibur has had the same cast from the beginning, it might be time to evolve...

At least Mortal Kombat had a lot of changes when it came to the plot and the characters, it's just too bad the gameplay became worse and worse each new iteration.

tekken 4 introduced new mecanics thanks to the stage having a border and tekken 5 with huge customisation . i won't even talk abouthe rage mode or the juggles based combos of tekken 6 ...
