SoulCalibur V Ezio Moves, Combos, Frame Data and Strategy Guide

By   /   Feb 4, 2012


My fellow SoulCalibur players, do you know what time it is? Yes, you’ve guessed it, it’s time to learn all about the new and hot characters of SoulCalibur V, ranging from Patroklos and going all the way till Leixia and others.

For the fact that so many of the SoulCalibur players may also be Assassin’s Creed fans, I’ve decided to shed some light on none other than the bearded Ezio Auditore, whose young-self is present in the fighting game.

This isn’t the first time in the SoulCalibur series that we’ve seen such a brilliant guest personality make an appearance in the fighting game; earlier SoulCalibur games have had Link, Darth Vader, and so many other high-fi personality heroes and villains.

Note. Read our Soulcalibur V Beginner’s Guide if you are new to the series.

In this guide we’ll be covering the following:

  1. Ezio Auditore’s Introduction
  2. Ezio’s Move List
  3. Important Move Lists With Frame Data
  4. General Tips and Tricks
  5. Counter-character(s) for Ezio
