Although it quickly switches to highly dramatic in-game assets, this new Soul Calibur V trailer begins with a bit of cosplay.

Call of Duty reckons there’s a soldier in all of us, but Soul Calibur V takes the much more believable line that we all secretly want to dress ostentatiously and hit each other with weapons. Not a euphemism. I think.

The anticipated fighter is expected on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on January 31 in the US and February 3 in Europe, and features Assassin’s Creed’s Ezio Auditore as a guest character.
