Five Things We Need To See in SoulCalibur V

TGH writes: SoulCalibur 5 was announced earlier this week along with a new trailer. It looks like fans of the series have plenty of reason to get excited (despite the disappointment that was SC4) with what we assume will be improved visuals, new modes, new characters, and a continuation of the series long running storyline. However, there are a few things that we feel absolutely must be included for this one to be a success. (PS3, Soul Calibur V, Xbox 360)

Soul Calibur has been my favorite fighter since the original Playstation, so seeing new character iterations was cool (at first), but like you, I'm in agreement that this time around the fighters should only come from the SC universe. The authenticity of the game just feels better without Yoda and Vader flailing around with their light sabers..I could maybe see Kratos; but maybe not..either way I can't wait to play!

Mortal Kombat gave us a story that we could actually get into!

That would be nice!

Also...there are characters that fit into Soul Caliber...like Yoshimitsu from Tekken. He's a big Soul Caliber guy. Lol.

I think other characters fit, so why rule them out? Just focus on the main characters! Actually, give us a brawl mode too! Make Super Smash Bros. cry while you're at it!

Seriously...why limit the game? Adventure! Fighter! Brawler! RPG?

And the term yoshimitsu basically means a japanese warrior. Its not like its the same character in both games.

How hard can it be to write Soul Calibur correctly? I see people writing "Caliber" all the time.

Whoops. Autocorrect must have screwed me over on that one. I post from my iPhone. ^_^

no need to a dynasty warrior like feature .. WE DON'T NEED IT .

There is ( i agree ) no need for spécial characters .. the guests must NOT have spécial gameplay on their own ( like the force star wars characters had )

We have already new characters

YEs the netcode must be updated ..but namco suck at it ..don't expect too much

the character creator must add more item but less Effets on them .. i want to create the character i want and not to worry about some stats making it unplayable afterwards

I just want a deeper single player. If they do like Mortal Kombat and create an engaging story mode, fine. Or if they perfect the Edge Master Mode(s), that's cool too. I just want something refined. A hack/slash style story mode would be intriguing though, wouldn't it?

I've been playing this series since Soul Blade. The series was at its peak on Soul Calibur I/II. Both the breakable weapon and armor features were a bit odd, didn't feel that they belonged there. Soul Calibur III felt a bit lackluster, it missed some charm, that odd extra mode there wasn't that great either compared to the 2nd and 3rd game's edge master mode.

The whole Star Wars on the Soul Calibur universe was a bit too much for me aswell, but what the heck...

As for the suggestions on the article:

Better single-player - Oh yes, either the classical edge master map mode thing or something like the Konquest mode from Mortal Kombat: Deception would fit well (with a bit of improvement). Fighting on a Dynasty Warriors kind of gameplay would feel a bit odd, the whole Tekken 6 story mode comes to mind when I think about it.

Guest characters - If they fit on the whole ambience yes if not no. Not the lightsaber vs samurai sword again please...

New characters - Yes please, but not that many! Might screw up with the balance if it isn't done carefully.

Online consistency - Yes please, this one is a no brainer.

Better character creator - This one always ruined the ambience for me. Might aswell remove that one and get a character customization mode instead, but then again that might just be me.

I want a more pronounced story and no special characters that will undermine the series.

No need for 5 things. Just one: Make SCV single-player an amalgamation of SC2 and SC3 and I'll be one happy gamer.
