Watch Soulcalibur V's Two New Additions, Astaroth and Viola, Smash It up

Two more fighters are officially confirmed for next year's most anticipated weapons-based fighter, Soulcalibur V: oversized axe-wielder Astaroth and a new contender, Viola, who has a touch of Freddy Krueger to her.

The giant Astaroth looks as he always does—a hulking executioner with yet another dramatic change of clothes and skin tone. His trademark axe is just as ridiculously massive as ever.

Viola wears little more than a claw, a frilly dress and some fancy shoes to battle in Soulcalibur V. But she's also armed with a glowing orb, making her one of the more unusual characters in this cast of very unusual characters.

Soucalibur V is slated to hit the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 some time in 2012.

Sigh I wish they had done more to make this not look like Soul Calibur 4.5.

I dunno, Im all for special revenge attacks, but these seem so halfassed. If you're going to do it, make them as cinematic as other games do.

Ah well, combat seems a bit faster and at least the special attack are more helpful than the Critical Finishes were. Should still be fun.
