The sixth of the series, Soul Calibur V is a fighting game that takes place 17 years after the events of Soul Calibur IV. Players will play the role of Patroklos, son of Sophitia. Sophitia's daughter Pyrrha will also be featured in this game, while Assassin's Creed's Ezio Auditore da Firenze will make an appearance. Expected to come out in January 2012. The armor in this new installment is still destructible but no longer has toughness indicator. "Brave Edge" and "Critical Edge" attacks are executed by charging a new gauge, works like the "super meter". Characters can now dodge by briskly sidestepping around their opponent. "Just Guard" is a new feature in this game which works like a delayed parry. When a perfect guard is executed against an opponent attack, the player can quickly attack the opponent after a very short period.
