Game director Daishi Odashima promised us last month it was coming, and now it’s official: Soul Calibur V will be launching on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2012. At Namco Bandai’s “Step Up Dubai 2011” event earlier today, producer Tago Hisaharu took the stage to debut the first trailer for the game. The story takes place 17 years after Soul Calibur IV, which was released back in 2008. The official website currently has a teaser countdown, which will end in a little over four hours, as of this writing.
Stay tuned for the official trailer of Soul Calibur V, as well as more details on the game as they trickle down at E3.
