As gamers from around the globe descend on Cologne for Gamescom, Namco Bandai is releasing the latest trailer for upcoming weapon-based combat title Soulcalibur V.

The game is the seventh entry in Namco's "Soul" games, and is set 17 years after Soulcalibur IV. Which means that Ivy is middle-aged and should look old. But she doesn't. Oh, to be a video game character!

The game is slated for a 2012 release on the PS3 and the Xbox 360.
