There’s an Assassin in My Soulcalibur

An anonymous tipster sent our friends at Joystiq the above pic, showing everyone's favorite Italian assassin, Ezio Auditore di Firenze, available for selection in the Soulcalibur 5 roster. Apparently, when he's not battling the Templar and scaling the side of cobblestone buildings, he's taking on the likes of Sophitia, Ivy, and Nightmare.

We'll chalk this up to a rumor at the time being since there's no official confirmation, but knowing how the franchise has previously included cameo appearances from other well-known characters, we're pretty confident in this being true.

Now, tell me what's the word... a word up!
