Well until then, what characters do you guys think are likely to return/become playable? The younger characters like Bangoo, Amy,and Talim are practically guaranteed.
Everyone on the boob chart (all the females, guests and bonus ones excluded) is confirmed, except possibly Hilde (who the x-out is most likely an issue with her height/bust being out of sync or being too big for the non-fan-service female), given it was about character's bust sizes in SC 5, as are Siegfried and Nightmare via the trailer. SC 4's guests are explicit "no"s via Dashi's twitter. The immortals (Astaroth, Cervantes, Raphael, Zasalamel and Yoshimitsuish) are safe bets. Mitsurugi has lots of potential as an old guy. Really the only one I'm only expecting might go is Rock, who will get a Generation Xerox in Bangoo.

Geezer!Misturugi would be freaking awesome. Again, though, I just want Lizardman and Nightmare. Anything else is icing.
Since Sophitia's son is the new lead, her daughter (I can't spell either of their names) is probably in too. Bonus points they use Calibur and Edge respectively.
I actually think most of the stable cast will return since I don't know of a fighting game that cut big parts of the cast from earlier incarnations. But as long as Voldo is in I'm pretty much satisfied although I'm probably going to wait for the price to drop this time since I'm not in the the primary demographic for these games.
You do understand that you're asking for a 67-year-old, leather-clad, bondage gear-wearing, Ambiguously Gay man to show up, right?
Anyway, I expect most of the cast to return. Most of 'em were 25-and-under as of II-IV.
Either Sophitia or Pyrrha is the new host of the sword (a female Nightmare?)
Hey, how about the guy Mitsurugi killed (I think it was Setsuka's master)? Could make a cool extra character, I'm already picturing him using Wooden Katanas Are Even Better or something. Also, can someone tell me what the deal is with Yoshimitsu?
Actually, come to think, Mitsurugi wouldn't be THAT old. Probably approaching 45-50, if I remember right.
As in Back from the Dead?
And what's not to get about Yoshi? Robin Hood-esque ninja. Has a prosthetic arm. Speakeths liketh this. Ancestor of the one from Tekken and most likely the original. One Yoshimitsu passes on his title to the next, and is then cut by the blade, which absorbs their soul.

Yeah, but why does he fly with his sword, poison breath, teleport and stab himself as an attack?
Er... because it's a staple of his character?
He'd be about 45. He was 28 from II-IV.
Favorite announcer, guys?
Pardon me for being retro, but I'm partial to SCI's announcer and his chatter.
OUT OF THE RING!
THIS VICTORY, STRENGTHENED THE SOUL OF, LIZARD MAN
I had the bright idea to dress Maxi up as Mugen from Samurai Champloo. Since they're both Okinawan, y'know. Next up: Mitsurugi dressed up as Jin and maybe Talim as Fuu. I only wish there was some magic screenshot button so I could post it.
They're from Ryukyu.
EDIT: Which Okinawa is part of lololol duh.

Also, I got kinda creeped out by Amy's default outfits, so I gave her a new one (to go with Rafael's outfit I made earlier). Now she looks like a cross between Arya Stark and Hit Girl.
That and: God damn, Tower of Lost Souls is starting to piss me off. Fighting itself I can manage, but some of the requirements are completely crazy. For instance, any "defeat all enemies with 0 remaining time" - Namco, GET BENT. Sincerely, Coaty.

OK, had to do without a magical Screenshot Button, used a camera instead, which may explain why they look like shit.
I'm not sure who the rest are, but I really like your Astaroth Akuma! I just made a bunch of random original characters (and a lot of them almost right away, so I was missing most of the equipment) so I don't think that my characters are very good...
Dude what. The first three are from Samurai Champloo. Then, there's Akuma, a getup for Amy so she looks less Gothic Lolicon (although based on Arya Stark's training clothes◊, Raphael inspired by Phantom of the Opera and a 'valkyrie' Hilde.
I still have to make a Zasalamel outfit based on Noob Saibot (a reference to MK 4, where Noob used a scythe as his weapon).
Also, for the clothes:
Which female character can knock you upwards the easiest? Because 20 achievements net you a Flight Attendant set...

From the last page, everyone seems to assume Siegfried's ending reveals that the whole purification thing was the result of Soul Calibur's plan, that it secretly doesn't have the best interests of humanity at heart, that it's true purpose is to wipe the world clean and it was just using Siegfried, but I've never thought so, particularly as Soul Calibur has never been shown as anything but a powerful force that touches those who wield it and is strengthened by them, rather than having sentience like Edge, and even in that scene it was never implied to be the mastermind behind anything - it never seems to have a goal of it's own, rather it responds to those who encounter it and influences and is influenced by them.
Especially if Soul Calibur is more in tune with it's wielder than Edge, it's likely that Soul Calibur was influenced by Siegfried's suicidal depression and semi-cynicism about the world, so when he poured his soul into it to "purify" everything, it responded to his madness and... well... crystal desolation for everyone.

I have to say, I found Siegfrieds ending depressing as hell. Seriously, the guy goes through four games of getting it all horribly wrong, finally gets a chance to put things right, with the physical antithesis of the source of his misery in his hand, and... he ends up destroying the world in his ending.
Fuck you Namco. The guy deserves a break.
And more custom characters!
There also was a Ninja Maid Taki and Musketeer Amy, but I forgot to take photos.

Just popping in to say one thing.
I want Yunseong to die. I really, really do.
I've wanted it since SCII, and haven't even played the series since III, but I want him to die. With a passion.
Seeing as I liked playing as him (moreso in II than in III and IV), I really don't, but the kid seriously needs to drop the Idiot Ball. That is the one trait of Yun-seong that needs to go. It's bad enough for some that he replaced Hwang, but the fact that he's functionally brain dead when it comes to all things Soul Edge is just pitiable. And mildly irritating.
