When we first heard Soulcalibur V had a mysterious guest character, our guesses were as varied as another Star Wars character, or perhaps Naruto or a fighter from one of Namco Bandai's Japanese peers. What we didn't see coming in the slightest was someone from a European publisher and one that fits so well as Ezio Auditore da Firenze. Assassin's Creed's resident Italian badass has joined the battle on history's stage and as you can see in the reveal trailer, he brought his A game.
Ezio may be the most fitting guest character in Soulcalibur history, with his many bladed weapons, experience with corrupting god-like power, and coming from a similar point in time as the rest of the fighters. Ezio will appear on both PS3 and 360 versions, so you don't have to worry about missing out or having to buy him months later as DLC.
