This was officially announced at a Namco event in Dubai last night.
Very little was actually explained at the event, but it is a sequel to SCIV and is set 17 years later. The new main character will be Patroclus - Sophitia's son.
Finally, it's got a 2012 release date.
You can see some very minor footage below. It's basically a bunch of SCIV footage spliced with a couple of frames of new animation at the end.
There's not much to go on, but I've always loved SC. Here's hoping this is a return to SC1 and 2 form as they've gone downhill pretty bad in the last two iterations :/
Also, Odashima recently posted on his Twitter about the restrictions a character's height puts on their bust size. Of course.
The teaser site for what is presumably SCV will also unlock at about 1700 today. http://www.bandainamcogames.co.jp/cs...ter/index.html
