is a video game developed and released by Namco Bandai Games for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2012.
The sixth main installment in Namco's Soul series of fighting game, Soulcalibur V is the follow-up to Soulcalibur IV and retains the weapon-based combat that characterizes the series but follows a new character, Patroklos, who aims to rid his sister of a curse brought upon her by an ancient weapon.
The game received a positive reception and was a commercial success, but was often criticized for the removal of many iconic characters from the earlier games in the series.
Like the previous games in the series, Soulcalibur V is a weapon-based fighting game. Players use high and low vertical and horizontal attacks to damage opposing player characters and can block incoming attacks or parry enemies' moves to gain a tactical advantage. The game features a tweaked "Critical Edge" system, allowing players to fill up a meter and utilize a variety of special attacks.
