Images of Soul Calibur IV

Images of Soul Calibur IV

After the trailer, here come the images ! Namco-Bandai is on fire and releases no less than thirty-three screenshots of Soul Calibur IV, showcasing lots of characters and especially a new female fighter named Angol Fear, with a quite, hum, unexpected design.
Update: Added 25 artworks of the game's characters.

the face looks like a child but the body looks like a woman

I am...CONFUSED!

And the elf person, sometimes the face looks like an anime boy, but then the body is of a female...argh! again confusing!

Why do they have to do this..why!?!

Just stick to awesome looking guys and big boobed females with nice long hair, all i want ;)

wow..looks like hot garbage, seriously, that character looks like the winner of some create a character sweepstakes, with the winner chosen at random..the anime face looks EXACTLY like the one included in SC3's create a character options (the anime face) the weapon design also sucks ass with a straw,.seriously, what is the point of all these new characters being chicks?

and why have they not added a character with twin axes?

All I know is TEKKEN continues to be the same game time after time series after series... but Soul Calibur IV is looking amazing.

I can't wait for this one.... it's going to be amazing. :)

series after series? i don't follow..Soul Calibur 4 is looking good, but if any of you HONESTLY think Stabby Knockers here is a great character design, maybe i'm out of touch, and should give up design altogether.

Look at her hideous face it's like she is from another game entirely.

Angol Fear is a great character design, but it doesn't fit with the rest of the characters. Can't wait for the game, I just hope it plays great overall.

Angol Fear looks like it belongs in a Wii title... Super Smash Bros or something... out of place. Yoda looks incredible. I wonder if Vader and Yoda will be appearing on PSN and XBLM as DLC after the game is out for a bit? Since Yoda is only on 360 and Vader is on PS3, isn't that right?

Damn Yoda looks insane. I mean Vader looks good but he doesn't have the detailed skin like Yoda does.

Namco <3 DLC so yeah

Is the new chick an actual character, or are they showcasing the new create-a-character? The face doesn't belong in a Soul Calibur game. Then again we got fucking Star Wars in there :/

And Tira looks amazing. <fapfap>

I'm not sure if it's worse that there is a Star Wars character in each game, or the fact there is only ONE Star Wars character in each game. It makes it a bit more painful they don't even bother including anyone else from the universe to make the addition a bit less harsh.

Also what's with the camel toe going on http://images.gamersyde.com/gallery/public/8224/12...

Seriously, you can't just treat it as a bonus character?

I'd gladly take a Star Wars character over most of these new characters by "guest" designers. Boring and out of place is how I'd describe most of them.

EDIT: I just looked a few more of the images a bit longer. I really must say, Angol Fear is awful looking. She belongs in a wacky, slap-sticky jrpg, not my favourite kick-ass fighter. And the boring elf character doesn't have a dude face; it just happens to be that androgenous male leads look like chicks, not the other way around. Siegfried looks absolutely rad though!

He looks better than he does in most of the movies.
Particularly Episode I. :p

That's true. A lot of popular anime male designs look very girly, which is why you lot think this elf character looks like a guy. This character is less feminine looking than the other female characters, though.
Anyway, I think this game is now in league with smash bros and all. Not a very serious fighting game, but probably good fun.

I was thinking the same thing about DLC and I hope so, I really want to play as Darth Vader too! :D (I'd even pay for it, up to a point.) Remember that Namco even had DLC for Soul Calibur on the Dreamcast?!

Why does the one character look like a freaking cartoon, set in a non-cartoon world with non-cartoon characters? The two newest characters (anime chick and elf girl) are ridiculous.. I don't like them. They're not quite as lame as the guest characters but they're worse than the entire SC3 cast combined.

Bring back Talim please, and Setsuka too.

Angol Fear FTW! The name… the look… just pure win!

I don't like the mixed art styles. What the fuck is a anime baby face doing here? And the spike nipples? Give me a break.
Commented on 2008-04-18 10:19:15
Big fighters, big swords and big breasts, this game has got it all! To quote Dom: This is gonna be awesome!
Though I would really like to play Vader on the 360... By the way has a european release date been announced?

About the game


What's up?
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts The Witcher games - and books - aren't perfect, but nothing is. For what they are and what they have accomplished, I thank both the author and the developers from the bottom of my heart. (2 Hours ago)

    Sdarts And it ran for years under the radar of almost everyone before the anime, then it suddenly became an enourmous worldwide success. In a way, the same happened with The Witcher books and the games. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Megido: Just because certain works aren't very popular doesn't mean that they aren't great. Take for example Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan), the manga is even better than the anime. (2 Hours ago)

    Sdarts @GriftGFX: English. And also listened to them in English. Same with Game of Thrones' books. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Although the games' writing isn't at the same level as the books', it's still far, far, far vastly better than 99% of the writing in games, movies, TV shows and books. CD Projekt RED did an epic job. (2 Hours ago)
