SoulCalibur V is being targeted for an early 2012 launch, Namco Bandai’s announced. It’s been a fast development cycle then, that’s for sure; the game was said to be at 10% only in mid-May this year.
Regardless, “Q1 2012” is the official word for now, according to producer Hisaharu Tago. That goes for both Japan as well as Europe and North America.
There’s no Tokyo Game Show trailer (yet?), so have a look at the latest one here, from the days of Gamescom last month.
