For those of you that haven’t been paying attention, Namco Bandai announced back on May 11th 2011 that they would be releasing Soulcalibur V on Xbox 360 and PS3 in 2012. Following on 17 years from where Soulcalibur IV left off, SC V will tell the tale (among others) of Patroklos, son of Sophitia Alexandra as his destiny intertwines with the Soul Sword…..although to be honest, the story has never been a thrillingly captivating tale, as there were always rather a few plot holes. Lets face it, we play it for the gorgeous graphics and combat, not to mention swords. Who doesn’t like swords???

Anyway, I digress.  Namco Bandai has opened a competition for fans to enter their name and favorite fighting style for a chance to be included in the officially released game. The chosen names will appear as CPU opponents for players to battle against when the game ships next year. As a bonus, all participants will receive Soulcalibur V desktop wallpaper just for entering. The competition is open from July 20, 2011 and will close on August 5th, 2011 at 11:00 PM.

So… I.P Freely, Amanda Hug ‘n’ Kiss, now is your time to shine.

Link to enter the competition is here. Good Luck!:
