For the July 2011 issue of EGM, we had the chance to talk to Soul Calibur series producer Hisaharu Tago about the role character customization would play in the upcoming Soul Calibur V.
“One of the main characteristics [of the series] is not just the characters and the game setting that the developer creates and shows to the player, but the other way–where the player has so many options to customize and create their own character and the look of it,” Tago explained.
“Those two are a really good pair, and we plan to make that even more robust. The one thing we can say is that we feel we’ve implemented all the customization features that the player would want.”
When pressed further, he clarifies: In addition to customizing clothing and weapons, players will now be able to alter their characters’ physiques. Hello, fat Kilik, A-cup Taki, and Cervantes on anabolic steroids (maybe).
