Ezio to star in SoulCalibur V?

SoulCalibur V‘s guest star may have snuck up on us a little early; an anonymous tipster has sent a picture of the game’s roster to Joystiq, supposedly revealing Assassin Creed‘s Ezio Auditore as a playable character. The shot was apparently taken at a recent fighting game tournament.

SoulCalibur is famous for its guest stars, which have included Link, Kratos, and even Darth Vader in the past. We don’t have much in the way of confirmation for Ezio right now, but he’d certainly be a welcome addition to the line-up.

SoulCalibur V releases next March.
