Get Your Name in Soulcalibur V


Namco Bandai is giving fans the chance to earn a little gamer nerd fame, today announcing a Soulcalibur V character naming promotion.

All’s you have to do is head over to the promo recruitment page and fill out the provided application form by August 5th. In the application form, you get to create an original name for a CPU opponent, choose a gender and weapon style, and go through a questionnaire to determine the personality of your fighter. Feel free to submit multiple character applications as well.

At the end of the promotion, an unspecified number of fan-named characters will be approved for inclusion in the final retail game when it ships for PS3 and Xbox 360 next year. For their time, all participants will receive a special Soulcalibur V desktop wallpaper.

So, have any cool name ideas for a Soulcalibur V weapon master?
