    SoulCalibur V Character Creation Rocks My World

    One of my favorite things to do in SoulCalibur IV was create characters. I spent hours and hours creating everyone from Batman and Joker, to Magneto, the cast of Samurai Champloo, even myself and all my friends. The character creation utility was not the most robust, but the sheer amount of clothing and armor options available meant it was possible to create just about anyone you could think of. It looks like Project Soul has outdone themselves this time.

    I realize this character creation trailer may be a hard trailer to watch, as it's a) upwards of 5 minutes long, and b) filled with silly Japanese humor, but sit through it, it's worth it. In addition to the wealth of armor and clothing that is no doubt available, you're now given an amazing level of control to finetune your character exactly as you'd like. Adjust individual body parts, place special customization pieces anywhere on your body or armor, change clothing colors and patterns, scale the patterns, change the color of your weapon effects, sky's the limit pretty much! In addition to creating new characters, you can even change existing characters to to fit whatever ridiculous standards you may hold them to. Mitsurugi in a leopard print dress? Ivy with a negative bra size? Go nuts! 

    One thing that hasn't been mentioned is the amount of characters one can create on a single profile. SoulCalibur IV was capped at 50, which was no where near enough. I've put the question out to Project Soul, so hopefully they respond with news. Regardless, SoulCalibur V is going to be dope, and the character creation only reinforces that. SCV drops on January 31, 2012. Save the date!

    Character Creation is my all time favorite option on any & all games, but none more than Soul Calibur ... Even if got my ass kicked online, I still got plenty of complements on my characters. I'm a father with a full time job, a wife & 2 kids...not much time to game, but I always find time for SC. Just last night I put finishing touches on a final creation. I do hope they cap the amount you get at double or higher then SCIV ... It's like making your own action figures. Always hated having to choose aone to delete in order to create a new warrior. Besides my family & friends, I've created many Marvel & DC favorites like Gambit, Thor, Batman, Jedi & Sith, Stormshadow, Afro Samurai, Samurai Jack, Neo, Kato, & plenty of original Greats like Japan & Master Sea. Being able to change so much more including the colors of both the weapons & It's glow... well ... It just about brings a tear to my eye. I'll be playing & creating till the next installment no matter how many years it takes.

    @NYC-Gambit: Hey, I'm glad to hear character creation means as much to you as it does to me. Do you have any pics or video of your created characters online? I love seeing what other people cook up!
