Namco’s splurged a bunch of new Soul Calibur V media in Japan, confirming the fighter will be out on February 2 in the process.

The Japanese box-art shows Patroklos, Nightmare and Ezio as the guest star. The European art we have so far features only the two soul blades.

The Dark Knight and White Knight have been shown this morning. I think they’re new, but don’t blame me if they’re not.

Here’s everything. Hopefully we’ll get some more western details later today. The game’s already been confirmed for a January 31 release in the US. If you want to have a crack at the Japanese announcement, try Dengeki.
