Leaked Soulcalibur 5 screen shows mysterious character (and it’s not Ezio)

We know, we know, the big story here is that Assassin’s Creed sneakster Ezio Auditore da Firenze may have infiltrated Soulcalibur 5’s dramatic tale of swords and souls, but look! There’s totally another dude up there, completely unaccounted for.

We’ve been over our tipster’s image with the finest fine-toothed combs money can buy, and every single character on this screen can be quickly and verifiably identified, except for the dude to the right of Ezio. Head past the break for a breakdown of the menu and let the wild, rampant speculation begin.

Resident Evil 6 teaser trailer?

UPDATEEarlier this morning, a representative from Capcom Japan confirmed with Kotaku and Kotaku Japan that the trailer posted above was being shown in the company’s closed theatre at the Tokyo Game Show.

Contacted for further information, however, representatives from Capcom USA later informed Kotaku that they “could not comment on rumours or speculation”. Those “rumors” being the trailer in question.

As this discrepency casts doubt on the legitimacy of the clip, we have updated the story’s headline and content accordingly. Apologies for any confusion caused!

Rely on horror: This random video hit Youtube not too long ago and quite possibly shows the very first teaser trailer for Resident Evil 6. Capcom didn’t officially announce anything at TGS to the public, but this may have been shown behind closed doors.

There’s not much to see here beside a logo, some text, and a quick flash. Its validity remains under immense question

Tokyo Game Show Shook by a Small Earthquake

This afternoon, just as the Tokyo Game Show was grinding to a halt for the day, a 6.2 magnitude earthquake shook northeastern Japan. There were no immediate injuries according to early reports.

The quake was 140 miles east of Tokyo, and the quake was felt at the Makuhari Messe, where TGS is held. The press room shook for about 20 to 25 seconds.

The March 11 quake remains a continuos reminder in Japan—even at TGS. There are donation boxes so TGS attendees can give to help with the rebuilding effort.

This morning while walking to TGS, Kotaku Japan editor Neil Hulihan pointed out the the sidewalk outside the train station to leading to TGS still bare the scars from the March quake.

Bricks were knocked out of place and not all were fixed. The sidewalk isn’t straight, and some of the curbs remained destroyed.

Today’s earthquake was nothing like March’s disaster, but a lingering reminder of what life is like in Japan.

Daytona USA May Be Coming To A Video Game Console Near You (Again)

What’s this?! A new rating for a Daytona USA video game? What could it mean?! If we’re venturing guesses, we’ll go with Sega reviving the classic arcade racer for an Xbox Live Arcade and/or PlayStation Network re-release.

But that’s just an educated guess, based on the fact that Sega has already released games like Sonic Adventure and Crazy Taxi through Microsoft and Sony’s respective digital distribution stores. An HD console release of Daytona USA, which is what we’re inferring from a recent Australian classification board listing spotted by XBLA Fans, would certainly be welcome.

It’s as good a candidate for an XBLA/PSN release as any in Sega’s back catalog. The classic arcade racer has received multiple ports, including one for Windows PCs and one for the Sega Dreamcast.

We’re checking in with Sega to see if they’d like to clear this one up.

Splinter Cell 6 in 2012?

Since Splinter Cell: Conviction released last April, there’s been little news on another installment in the Tom Clancy​ series. Like Rainbox Six and Ghost Recon, the Splinter Cell titles have be become increasingly less tactical, trading details for “accessibility” but last year’s stylistic take on the franchise with Conviction won over critics once again.

Splinter Cell 6 was name-dropped by Jade Raymond last November where she revealed that it’s going to be fully developed by Ubisoft’s new Toronto studio and some speculated that an official reveal would be teased at E3 2011, but it wasn’t meant to be. According to the latest rumor however, Splinter Cell 6 will release next year.

The rumor stems from the Czech site, vytukej.cz, who claim that Elias Toufexis​, the voice behind the character of Andriy Kobin in Splinter Cell: Conviction, said that the game is nearing completion and that it’ll be ready for release in 2012.

The report continues with Toufexis explaining that the next game will be directly tied into the events of Conviction and that it’ll be a more challenging game with quite a few gameplay changes. What this means and how accurate this may be, we’ll just have to wait and see.

The character of Andriy Kobin was integral to the plot of Conviction (and its added co-op mode). He was responsible for the trickery behind the kidnapping of Sam’s daughter in the game, and he’s one of only three characters who survive Fisher’s interrogations. At the end of the game, it’s left hanging whether or not Kobin survives so if this rumor pans out, Kobin is back for Splinter Cell 6.

Alongside Assassin’s Creed and Ghost Recon, Splinter Cell is Ubisoft’s third flagship franchise that they plan to adapt for film with the company’s newly formed Ubisoft Motion Pictures studio so it won’t be long before we hear more about Splinter Cell 6.
