Soul Calibur V Teaser Transcends History

A tale of souls and swords eternally retold... That's Soul Calibur V that is. Is the tale eternally retold, because no one really understands what the hell is going on the first time? Whatever the case, Soul Calibur is officially back, and Namco Bandai has released the debut trailer to coincide with the game's announcement at its LevelUp conference in Dubai.
Featuring Siegfried and Nightmare, as well as the good and evil versions of the ubiquitous sword, the trailer is typically OTT, but sadly shows little in the way of gameplay. OK, it shows no gameplay, but it does show Nightmare roaring and a glimpse of Sophitia raising the weapon above her head. Looks like the story might still heavily involve Siegfried and his corrupted alter-ego then.
In fact, Sophitia's son Patroklos will be at the centre of the story too, who we assume is the blonde fella in the eye of the evil sword. That would make sense. Check out the short teaser trailer below for a first look at Soul Calibur V, then look out for the game in 2012.
