SoulCalibur V – Arcade FightStick Soul Edition Announced

Posted By | On 28th, Oct. 2011

Mad Catz has just recently announced the SOUL EDITION Arcade FightStick, which is officially licensed for use with Namco’s highly anticipated SoulCalibur V.  Ezio Auditore from the Assassin’s Creed franchise will be in the game and so many other cool characters, I’m even in the game!  It’s just really hard to unlock my character. SoulCalibur V takes place 17 years after the the previous game (SoulCalibur IV) with new characters in the game and returning ones as well.

Playstation 3 Version (Xbox 360 Version seen above).

With the franchise being probably my personal favorite fighting games of all time, any hardcore fan of the series should probably see this SOUL EDITION Arcade FightStick as a must have.  The Fightstick is set to release along side with the game in January of 2012 for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.  The game itself will hit shelves on January 31st, 2012 and will include ore-order bonuses.  Full Press Release below.
