That would be such a lame cop-out, though, would really be a shame if that's what happened. They did include the in-reference to Assassin in Mi-na's story, but he used the same appearance that the Conduit does in the main story if you haven't started Libra of Soul yet, so the "Assassin" as featured in story already technically exists, but as with the rest of Hwang's appearances, didn't appear fighting. I really am not sure why they're jerking us around so much with Hwang, either give him to us or stop the teasing. If yellow's not Hwang, then pink doesn't have to be Setsuka... though it probably is.

That’s true and I understand how you feel. It has not been easy being a Hwang fan.

I don’t mind the Hwang/Assassin transformation, but I can see how some may feel hesitant about it. Initially, I didn’t consider Hwang changing into Assassin (aesthetically and move-set-wise). But a few things pushed me here lol:

+ Appears as Assassin for a moment in Seong Mina’s story

+ Under this disguise, seems to be close to Fyugal Cestemus (A new story?)

+ Observation/Bias (lol): Kayane interviewed Mr. Okubo after announcing season 2. She asks him if all three characters in the season pass will be legacy characters. He pauses for a long time, hesitant the interviewer explains, then says “You’ll see! Please wait!”

- This could mean anything. But, last time he avoided the question of a new female character by Kayane we got 2B. Still, I can only guess lol.

+ With this interview in mind, I thought

- New character

- No new character

-Character we know, but new move-set ( Sparked ideas of Assassin)

- Hidden guest


+ With all of this, I thought about Hwang’s identity in Soul Calibur ( especially in relationship to Yun-Seong). If Hwang was to be brought back, I think Project Soul would realize just how similar Hwang and Yun-Seong are: Not just fighting style, but background and title( both labeled patriots)too. If Hwang was to comeback, Project Soul would likely try to make a significant distinction between him and Yun-Seong ( as they did with Amy, Cassandra, and Seong-Mina): something that kind of shows in his possible new story elements and Assassin aesthetic.

+ Finally, there is that Seong Dojang entry in the compendium that mentions secret, underground training techniques. This really pushed me to consider a new move-set for Hwang (being a very trusted member of the Dojang)

I still like Hwang’s normal design. Maybe he could occasionally disguise himself? Also, he doesn’t absolutely need Assassin to be interesting (opinion). He has a really good (in my opinion) story. Maybe they will just strengthen and refine that.

Wow, I really know how to type a lot lol •_•. If you read this, thank you : )!! I really enjoy talking about this stuff with everyone.

Disclaimer: My ideas are wild. Some would say insane lol. Hwang Fans (like me): This does not mean he will come to Soul Calibur. I just really hope he does : )!

I think the most you are likely to get in this vein is one of those alternate colour pseudo-2Ps. You know, like Mitsu has the Arthur eyepatch in his one alt, and Sophitia has the malfested eyes: maybe you get a lower face mask with Hwang's third colour option. And yeah, maybe he does go undercover in his alter-ego in the soul Chronicle. But full-on Assassin as his default presentation? I wouldn't say that's very likely.

Ohh, I’m glad you pointed that (his face covering) out! I’m not sure if they will transition him into Assassin, but covering his entire face would hurt me lol. I welcome changes to the Assassin design if they were to adopt it. I am also ok with Project Soul (almost) completely avoiding the Assassin look. But, it would be interesting. I didn’t realize this before, but a lot of Hwang’s story ( at least on the wiki: is that a good source of info?) seems to be him being an agent of sorts: Sent out by his country to complete a mission.

Edit made: I mentioned how Hwang’s story made him seem spy-like. But, after checking, that is not right. He is more like an agent. Closest thing I can think of is something between Groh and Xianghua. Not a spy, but not just a member of the military either.

It does look like there is a slight variance from the previous image and the one seen in Hilde's trailer, but it still looks pretty pink, just a bit more saturated:




It does seem maybe a bit less pink, a bit more red, but if you look at the creation parts icon, it's still clearly pink either way. Compare Haohmaru's red.

Just to check what weapon and alignment is in the background of the third image? The theory that the first would be related to soul calibur turned out accurate which means the last one is probably related to soul edge based on the background image.

I thought the last slot being grey and having Soul Edge hinted at it being Yun-Seong. I still think that, but I remember reading someone else’s comment on these slots. They mentioned that the background swords could just be like this for symmetry: Soul Calibur -> Soul Edge -> Soul Calibur -> Soul Edge.

My excited mind doesn’t believe that, but it is possible, right?

Setsuka used pink in her default costumes, being more predominant in SC3 and blending white and red in her SC4. She is more likely to be pink.

Except if her story mode takes place before the games and she might not actually have the kimono yet...perhaps she'll still be in her mary poppins getup (white) or perhaps something similar to the artbook (which was very pale blue) which was pre-events of Kokonoe being run through by Mitsurugi. Although they could just as easily give her a white flower patterned Kimono as those are very common and would probably stand out just as much on the roster. Her default costumes also have just as much light red to them as pink. I don't think we can cross out either slot being her.

Ohh, that’s a good point @kyrt ! Before being given her pink Kimono, I’m not honestly sure what she wore. Maybe something grey >_> lol. Her kimono could still be her main outfit though (a pink one). I wish I could visit the future to confirm : ).

I’m too afraid to decisively say who the grey slot is lol. I think it is Yun-Seong, but anything is possible : ). I think this season pass will move a little faster ( I hope). I can imagine Setsuka (if she is the pink slot) being teased in Haohamaru’s trailer ( hopefully at EVO if not sooner : ) )

all Koreans wants the Sword of Salvation :sc5se:
It does seem like they all pursued it at once lol. I don’t think many people knew it was evil. Not to bring Hwang up, but (lol), he does seem to have a tie to Fyugal Cestemus. Will this small element put him on the bad side ( which seems to happen (sometimes) to people who probably shouldn’t be labeled evil/bad: Taki, Amy (kind of lol), Groh, Voldo.
