My favorite feature of Soulcalibur IV was the ability to create my own custom characters and see how they fare on the stage of history. Judging by this trailer and these new screens, it'll probably be my favorite feature of Soulcalibur V as well.

With the inclusion of stickers and scars, pattern changing and scaling, weapon effects, and more, it looks like Project Soul would rather I just sit in character creation all day long, pumping out kitty girls like some sort of one-man neko factory, and you know what? That's perfectly fine with me.
