Link and Zelda Pitted One Against the Other in Soul Calibur V

The folks over at NowGamer sure are flexing their creativity with Soul Calibur V‘s character generator, as attested by this martial match-up.

I must say, the aesthetics are pretty spot-on (though Link’s hat could do with a bit less… perkiness). The quiver on his back, as well as Zelda’s use of an orb, are a great touch on an already instantly recognizable duo. For context on the creative process, check out the source link below.
