Unanswered questions

Because of the deadlines, Soulcalibur V Story mode was reduced to a quarter of its original planned duration. Therefore, many questions left unanswered:

  • Did Pyrrha actually kill Z.W.E.I. in Episode 18?
  • How did Xiba become the new owner of the Kali-Yuga?
  • Did Night Terror manage to break free from Astral Chaos after Pyrrha opened several cracks in Episode 18?
  • Where are Amy, Yun-seongSeong mi-na, Zasalamel , Talim and Rock ?
  • Will Pyrrha keep her malfested arm or will she get her normal arm back in a possible next game?
  • What happened to Soul Edge and Soul Calibur? Were they sealed, destroyed or did they become another Soul Embrace?
  • When Z.W.E.I. killed Graf Dumas, what happened to Nightmare's body? Did it get seperated from both Soul Edge/Inferno and Graf Dumas after he was killed? Will Inferno reclaim it in a possible new installment?
  • What happened to Tira and why didn't she defend Soul Edge or try to save it?

Trivia

  • Soulcalibur V's story mode was originally planned to be four times bigger than it actually is, but time restraints meant it needed to be cut back. That’s according to game director Daishi Odashima who was speaking to Train2Game in an interview.
  • He explained that Namco Bandai team didn’t have the staff or the time needed realize their full vision for Soulcalibur V’s story. The story of the released game mainly focuses on two characters, Patroklos and his sister Pyrrha, opposed to each character on the roster having their own individual story as previous games in the series do.
  • Guest character, Ezio Auditore fought and killed his nemesis, Cesare Borgia in the year, 1507. This makes the events 100 years later from the events of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood and Soulcalibur V.
  • Pyrrha Ω uses Soul Edge & Elk Shield in Episode 11, Xiba uses Kali-Yuga and Natsu uses Kuzukiri & Mekki-Maru in Episode 15.
  • Aeon Calcos, Algol, Cervantes, Dampierre, Hilde, Kilik, Mitsurugi, Raphael and Yoshimitsu do not appear in Story ~1607 A.D~.
  • Patroklos, Pyrrha, and Z.W.E.I. are the only playable characters in the story.
