The first official trailer for Soul Calibur V’s guest character – Assassin’s Creed’s Ezio Auditore – has the Italian assassin in fine form.

GTTV has an exclusive on the trailer; check it out below.

Soul Calibur V is due on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in January next year. Ezio’s appearance in game was confirmed earlier today when Gamespot went live with a hastily-pulled video confirming Ezio Auditore’s appearance as playable character in Soul Calibur V.

Hitsuhiro Tagu, the game’s producer, said Ezio is a good fit as the franchise’s latest guest character because his historical setting is an aesthetically pleasing match with that of Soul Calibur V.

Ezio’s inclusion was rumoured earlier this week accompanied by an unconvincing but apparently entirely real screen grab. We’re expecting more information and some proper assets to follow the reveal.

Soul Calibur V is due in February next year, on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
