With Namco's recent trademark filing for SoulCalibur Unbreakable Soul, plus SoulCalibur Lost Swords and SoulCalibur 2 HD Online releasing later this year, this thought came back to me again; Nina in a Soul game - why isn't this a thing already? Tekken's Yoshimitsu has been a member of the cast since 1998's SoulCalibur, Heihachi was a playable guest character in SoulCalibur 2 and, above all, Namco themselves planted the idea of an iron clad, sword fighting, medieval version of Nina into my head with her Tekken 5 ending FMV - a major tease if ever there was one. So here's my request, Namco: Nina Williams for SoulCalibur6/7/

Videogame character and Bishoujo figure design illustrations take center stage in Shunya Yamashita's latest art book Beautiful Noise. Amongst art for games such as Disgaea, Mass Effect and Lollipop Chainsaw, and illustrations for franchises such as Neon Genesis Evangelion, Star Wars, X-Men, Ghost Busters and Men in Black, a great deal of the artist's attention went to his illustrations for Tekken Tag Tournament 2. Unsurprisingly, Nina Williams is the obvious star of the 37-page Tekken section...
