This is a new type of SOULCALIBUR. There are new faces, new weapons and new systems to explore. So we’ve created a new type of fighting game guide to bring the complete picture into focus. The focus is on knowledge, and gaining any advantage you can, so we’ve packed every last page with information straight from the world’s best players. Learn to use the new Brave Edge and Critical Edge attacks to their fullest. Learn to Just Guard at exactly the right times. Learn to wield your character like a weapon. It’s time to get sharp…

Master Your Character

Each character in SOULCALIBUR V represents a totally new challenge waiting to be mastered. Everything about each of these characters is laid bare, from how they should be approached when learning them to their best combos, mix-ups and ring out tools. Individual attacks are analysed in detail and tournament-worthy strategies are provided for all aspects of a character’s game.

Reach Tournament Level

Learning to win at fighting games can be a slow and frustrating process, but it’s not beyond anyone’s reach. We take you from the basics of selecting your character all the way to understanding mix-ups, spacing, punishing and the many mind games that go with them; everything you need to win.

“Perhaps the best fighting game guide ever made.”
