Soul Calibur 5 Patch Changelog Available!

by Rip

A couple days ago it was announced that Soul Calibur 5 would be receiving a massive balance patch with ~240 updates. The patch goes live on March 21st, but you can read all the patch changes here. Some really interesting system changes here as they patched out the attack guard option that was used to make 8-way run and side step safer. Back dash is also more unsafe now. Aris’ fuzzy jump has also been patched out. Balance wise it looks like Natsu, Maxi, Xiba, and Tira got hit with the nerf stick. Lots of small nerfs across the board as well. Ivy and Viola look like they got some good buffs as well.

Also, there is going to be a patch for more customization options coming down on April 3rd. 4gamer has a bunch of screenshots up of a lot of the new customizations.
