You can forget about merely being able to knock the “armour” off of the characters in Soul Calibur IV; it appears in fact you can force them (even ones possessing such improbable pantomime figures as Ivy) into battle in their very underwear, or in at least one case, completely naked.
The male warriors of Soul Calibur also exhibit tasteful undergarments and distinctly muscular frames.
And the completely naked one everyone has been waiting for:
No sign of Lord Vader’s underwear? A not so small mercy. But less mercifully, no fundoshi appear to be in evidence for Taki and the like.
Soul Calibur IV has already been rechristened “Oppai Calibur IV”.
On a more serious note, this game has degenerated into a complete farce.
