Xbox 360 tested version.
In this article we will explain how to unlock all the extra content available within the title for all owners of Soul Calibur V.
As in any self-respecting fighting game, Soul Calibur V has a huge amount of extras and we at 4news.it have decided to show you the available contents and how to unlock them.
In Soul Calibur V it is possible to play in extra scenarios. To unlock the bonus scenario, you will have to fulfill some objectives set by the developers. Below I leave you with a list of extra scenarios that can be unlocked with the action to be taken to unlock the extra element.

Like in a self-respecting fighting game, Soul Calibur has an extensive list of rosters that can be used by players. Some of these are extra characters that need to complete certain objectives in order to be unlocked.
Let's see together what are the characters to unlock and how to unlock them.

Below I will walk you through the extras you can unlock in Soul Calibur V. The extras that you will find below will not be characters nor scenarios, but "effect shots" that can then be donated to the PG, a particular game mode that will vary the Arcade experience, some weapons that will be used for some characters of the your roster and let's not forget the secret styles!
Let's see all this together.
Unlockable hit effects
To unlock the effect shots, just reach the level of the player indicated to unlock the corresponding effect:
Route Arcade "Extra"
The "Route Arcade"To be unlocked you must reach level 17. This Extra unlocks the path"Extras”In Arcade mode. This particular course features a new angle closer to the pitch and fixed at an angle, offering a new perspective for playing Soul Calibur V.
To unlock the following weapon, you'll need to reach level 53 to unlock Weapon Set # 8.
The Master Weapon
To unlock the weapon, you will need to reach level 25 to unlock “The Master Weapon”.
As in the previous Soul Calibur, also in this new chapter it is possible to unlock particular fighting styles.
The fighting style that I show you is:
THE SOUL OF THE BATTLE OF DEVIL JIN
(A fighting style from the TEKKEN series)
You will be able to unlock and select this style, only after completing one of the following objectives:
-1 method: Defeat KATSUHIRO HARADA in the Quick Battle to unlock the style.
-2 method: After completing the Story mode it will be unlocked, in the Legendary Souls mode, HARADA, you will have to defeat him to unlock the style… it will certainly not be an easy encounter. For the ability to find him quickly set the search options for: Japan (Asian countries), Advanced and New opponent first.
-3 method: You will need to reach player level 5 to unlock the style.
Guide to Trophies / Achievements
For all trophy hunters (PS3) and achievements (Xbox 360), a guide to game trophies certainly could not be missing.
