Update: Namco Bandai has confirmed that Ezio will appear in Soul Calibur V.

Original story

Ezio Auditore de Firenze of Assassin’s Creed fame could be a playable character in Namco Bandai’s upcoming Soul Calibur V.

Joystiq were sent an image of the character select screen, which seems to show that Ezio will be a part of the roster.

The image was apparently sent by an unknown person who obtained it from a recent fighting game tournament, but people can do some clever stuff with computers these days, so only time will tell if this is true.

Soul Calibur V is due for release next year on Xbox 360 and PS3.
