Soul Calibur V’s siblings now slightly less mysterious

A couple of new details of Soul Calibur V’s new characters, Patroklos and Pyrrha, have surfaced.

According to Game Watch, the two children of Sophitia haven’t had an easy life. Their mother was killed and their father died of illness.

Worst of all, although both were born in Athens, Pyrrha doesn’t remember this. Kidnapped at a young age, the slightly older sister of Patroklos isn’t aware of her family ties.

Patroklos knows his only surviving family member is out there somewhere; perhaps he’ll recognised Pyrrha as they both use a similar style of fighting – short sword and small shield.

Former favourites Siegfried, Mitsurugi, and Ivy have also been confirmed. The game will feature up to 30 characters at least half of whom will be new.

Soul Calibur V is due on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2012.
