Are you a Final Fantasy, RPG, cosplay (either in real life or on behalf of your gaming characters!) or Assasin’s Creed Fan? Then you’ll be excited to hear the most recent news released by Ubisoft.
Although Ezio Auditore’s, the stealth action hero originally dreamed up by Ubisoft story came to a conclusion in November 2011 release of Assasin’s Creed: Revelations, he won’t be dropping out of the gaming scene just yet.
Ubisoft has announced that Ezio will soon be featured in SoulCalibur V, a new fighting game which is scheduled to be released on January 31st. Additionally, Final Fantasy XIII-2 an up and coming RPG with a great deal of downloadable content is set to offer an Ezio Auditore costume for download so that you can deck out your Noel Kreiss character from the new game.
According to reports, the costume that will be available for download will be Ezio’s darker look from Assassin’s Creed: Revelations rather than softer his Assassin’s Creed II or Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood outfits.
Cosplay and gaming fans can look forward to playing Final Fantasy XIII-2 after its release date in late January on the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3. The RPG will be a direct sequel to 2010’s Final Fantasy XIII directed by Motomu Toriyama. Toriyama told GameSpot the update will be “perhaps even darker and more mysterious” than its predecessor.
