Mortal Kombat was the stand out fighting game of 2011, and now we have just had the release of the first fighting game to release this year. That honor goes to Namco Bandai and Soul Calibur V and we have some handy information for those of you who have already purchased the game.
Namco is more than partial to the odd guest character appearing in their Soul Calibur franchise as most of you are probably well aware. Soul Calibur IV featured none other than Yoda and Darth Vader from the Star Wars universe, and this time players will be treated to Ezio Auditore from Assassin’s Creed as a playable character on both the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions.
For those of you that are already playing the game, you are probably wondering how to unlock some of the secret characters in the game. You’ve probably figured out that characters such as Edge Master, Elysium, Alpha Patroklos and Pyrrha Omega can easily be unlocked by simply completing story mode. However, a few other secret characters are more difficult to obtain, such as Kilik and Algol. To unlock these two characters, you’ll have to go through Legendary Souls Mode, defeat each respective character and then complete the mode fully to unlock both of them.
These are the secret playable characters in the game, but we can tell you that Namco has inserted one other hidden feature in the game, and it is going to make a lot of you who played Tekken very happy. It turns out that you can unlock the fighting style of Jin Kazama as his alter ego Devil Jin. You won’t get the actual character from Tekken, but just his fighting style which is still pretty good.
If you want to see what we mean, we’ve included a video below showing the ‘soul of Devil Jin’ in action. Let us know what you think of the game so far and if you have discovered any more notable secrets other than the characters we’ve mentioned above.
