I played a little bit of Soulcalibur V today. I recorded some of it, cut out all the parts where I lost horribly, and made this video for you to watch.

I've got glimpses here for you of the story, the character creator and the excellent new Critical Gauge. Plus, I've got Ezio fighting for you.

Soulcalibur V drops in the U.S. on January 31, in Europe and Japan later in the week.

Correction: The game's story actually takes place seventeen years after the events of Soulcalibur IV.
