    In preparation for the upcoming Namco Fighting Games Panel at the San Diego Comic Con (the countdown on the front of 8WR is currently counting down till the panel); Namco has released some new assets and character artwork which confirm Ivy, as well as a stage without ringouts.

    The most stunning of all this is that the male character silhouette that Daishi leaked to us last week is not Raphael, which I'm sure most of us assumed, but is instead a new character named "Zwei" (German for "two"). He also appears to be holding his sword in a "tonfa-like" fashion.

During the days of SOULCALIBUR II, Jaxel may have been considered one of the top Talim players in the world. But since then, he has become a total scrub who can barely play at a competitive level. Keeping that in mind, you should take anything he says about the game with a massive load of salt.

Now he sits back behind the scenes and runs 8WAYRUN.

      I wonder if that field is really gonna be a stage. Would that mean it would be the 1st wall-less ringout less stage? That would be awesome!

      Pretty much everything about this announcement is fine to me.

      Ivy managed to get classed up without removing the sex appeal completely.

      Zwei looks interesting from the in game shots (Though the tonfa grip in his model pose is kinda lame)

      New-Taki looks fine in game.

      The arena stage is pretty awesome.

      The only thing that worries me is the 'endless' stage. I really, really hate that kind of design in a game like SC. ;/

      I was indifferent to the girl, but I'm really not feeling Zwei's design as of right now. I have no idea what he is supposed to represent. His sword looks like it has three handles, so I think this is as close as we're going to get to a bastard sword character. I do like Ivy's classy slut getup, though. More stage variety is always a good thing in my opinion. I can't wait to see everything in action.

      I am happy with what has been revealed, and am intrigued by this new Zwei character. Maybe he will be revealed to be a member of Schwarzind? Only time will tell!

      Cool stuff, Namco.

      Zwei fights under a full moon, has a moon tattoo, and wolf crests. His name is "two". If this guy has a werewolf form I will crack the fuck up. Vampires, zombies, golems, and now werewolves. If he is a werewolf, his design starts to make a hell of a lot of sense.

      OHHHHMYGOD, Ivy. She looks hawt. Love the new 1P. Though, I don't like the weird general suit-like collar desend around her boobs.. But it's nice. I love the design for the fabric covering her previous cut.
      On a less-important note, this is really cool stuff. I do hope the field becomes a stage, and that Zwei and the chickadee look cool.

      Hilde/Wolfkrone peeps have items with wolves and ish on them, but his hair makes me think you all may be right

      Ivy's new costume is decent, though I was really hoping she was going to be the boss... guess that leaves Sophitia or ... maybe Taki as possible newly possessed by Soul Edge.

      As for Taklet (Natsu is it?), not at all impressed. What do we have in those shots, Assassin's Revenge, Fan Dance, and jumping B, all perfect rips from SCIII/IV Taki. I'm really hoping I'm right in that Taki is getting a major overhaul to her style and thus Taklet has taken up the now obsolete moves...

      Zwei seems like a good addition to the franchise. Perhaps a bit too modern in design, doesn't quite fit in perfectly.

      I really hope he's not.. That'd be too much..

      We have talking swords, fire wielding weapons, and whatever the hell Ast is, but you think that'd be too much?
