Soulcalibur V in slow motion is probably the most beautiful thing you'll see today

Soulcalibur V looks amazing. And there's so much to see, whether it's the fluidity of the cloth physics, subtlety of the lighting effects or just the beautiful animation. Problem is, the game moves so fast, you don't really have time to appreciate every nuance because you're too busy trying to keep up with it all. So we've slowed the game down in this video to allow you some time to coo over the little details. We did.

The music is called SOULCALIBUR V Ending Theme (catchy title), composed by Jillian Aversa and Cris Velasco with the vocal performed by Jillian. It plays over the end credits in the game, which is out today in the US, so look out for our review very soon.

And if you like this slow-motion malarky, we have more! First, you should check out The awesome beauty of games captured in slow-motion, then perhaps Bayonetta's sexiest moves. There's also Marvel vs Capcom 3 in slow-motion, which looks frankly amazing. Some things are worth taking your time over.

Want to learn more about the game's history? Why not download the Soulcalibur V Magazine from the iTunes NewsStand? All you need to do is download the free container App for Edge, GamesMaster, Official Playstation Magazine UK, PSM3, Official Xbox 360 Magazine UK or Xbox World 360 and it'll be there for you to download, absolutely free.

    if that video is actually the most beautiful thing you see today i feel incredibly sorry for you. just the idea of that is depressing.

    I hate to sound like an elitist (although I probably am one), but it's a shame that this game isn't coming to PC, which would probably be the only way to guarantee a stable frame rate of a game slowed down to 10% of the original speed.

    Video was okay, since it was too choppy. But that theme and those moves and its graphics just sold me on the game. I'm not a huge fighting game fan, though I like my fair share, and the only series I really, REALLY liked was Super Smash Bros. and Soul Caliber. And damn, this looks like a solid entry into the series. I'll stay my money-spending hand until the review comes out.

    A great video, the choppiness of the video kinda ruined it for me though. Glad that the video didn't consist of multiple crotch shots of all of the women. Very tasteful!

    That is pretty nice. One good-looking fighting game.
