Soul Calibur V is set 15 years after SCIV
Current ages of everyone:

Amy = 31
Astaroth = 24
Cassandra = 38
Cervantes = Undead
Dampierre = Unknown (Possibly 55)
Hilde = 35
Hwang = 49
Ivy = 49
Kilik = 36
Li Long = 48
Lizardman = 53
Maxi = 45
Mitsurugi = 46
Nightmare = Lol He's a sword.
Raphael = 49
Rock = 59
Seong Mi-na = 40
Setsuka = 41
Siegfried = 40
Sophitia = 42

Voldo = 67

Using this list, we shall debate on who returns and who is out. Bamco Namdai have confirmed very few of the original cast shall be returning.

Hoping Amy and Raphael come back. Doesn't seem too unlikely, they're vampires right?

Astaroth was 7 in SC4?

@Pessh: hes some sort of golem that was created or summoned or something. i cant remember the details.

Did they really confirm that not many of the characters would be back? That would be a shame. I really like a lot of them (it's not going to be Soul Calibur for me without Sophitia or Taki).

I bet whoever of the female characters make it back are not going to look their age.


Also, guys like Mitsurugi only become more badass with age so he'll definetly be in it.

@RockmanBionics: A 49 year old ivy would not have perky breasts and be in any kind of fighting condition.

@Zabant: Which is why I said that any female character returning will not look her age. Heck, I was playing some SC4 yesterday (bought it new but had not spent a ton of time with it) and was wondering how old she was suppose to be.

I was guessing early fourties (it's the hair).

All I know, is that I want an Old-Man Mitsurugi, who kicks ass.

Tekken did a similar thing.  They simply replaced a lot of the characters with new younger ones and/or kept the original character with little to no difference.  There's a few characters in Tekken who should be at least 50, but certainly don't look it.
 This guy is 55.


Or they can claim the powers of Soul Edge/Calibur prevented them from aging?
Sophitia and Taki are the only ones I'd worry about, both seem a little too old now. Sophitia especially, who now has a son as well as a younger sister.  I definitely see a younger version of Taki being in as well.

Have you seen Ivy? Those are in no way shape or form 'perky breasts' in her current form. I don't care at all about the breasts particularly but it's obvious if they weren't supported by anything they would hang, being as big as they are. Just anatomy yo.
Video games!

Well   Sophitia will be in it since it's her kid that's causing all the ruckus.  I suspect the popular ones will return and maybe the rest will show up as DLC sometime in the future.   I hope Amy and Tira come back.  I usually use either Talim or  Xianghua, but when Amy arrived in SC4, I gravitated toward her.  I never got the hang of Tira but I really like the hoola-hoop weapon.

@PenguinDust
I disagree with you on that. I'm pretty sure patrolokos and Pyrrha will be replacing Sophita and Cassandra.

Let's just say he better be in it.

Damnit.

Isn't Yoshimistu like a ghost or some shit.

As long as he is back I don't give a fuck about everyone else.

You mean I won't get to feel weird by playing as a gothic lolita fetishist anymore? No thank you.
