With 17 years separating SoulCalibur V from SoulCalibur IV, Project Soul has near two decades' worth of explaining to do. Could this be the most story-driven SoulCalibur yet?

I swear there's more plot and dialog going on in this short video than I recall seeing in any other game in the Soul series. Not that it really needs much of a story. They could just pull a Beyonder a'la Marvel Comics' Secret Wars and have some all-powerful being transport them all to a barren planet to randomly battle it out and I'd still buy it, if only to prove once again how badly I suck at fighting games.

For those of you that aren't in it for the story, perhaps you can be enticed with pictures of characters in dramatic poses?
