The news come from a NeoGAF poster who dropped pictures of the two fighters on the character select screen. Newcomer Elysium is kitted up in a skimpy angel outfit whereas Veteran Kilik is now wearing an eagle mask.
EGM’s TAKE: It stands a good chance that both of these characters are the real deal, considering how well made they both are. Either that or a very talented artist faked both which is less likely. Another theory is that both character slots may contain mimics who can copy other fighters movesets, but this seems even more far fetched. Also if you consider the fact that Kilik has appeared in every major soul Calibur title since the first one, it makes sense that he would be in the roster for Soul Calibur V. Little is known about the skimpy angel Elysium though. Guess we’ll have to wait until January 31 to find out more.
