Soul Calibur V
Storyline of Soul Calibur 5
Ever-searching for a worthy adversary to test his skills, Heishiro Mitsurugi journeyed to Ostrheinsburg; there he entered a chaotic alternate dimension and faced the hero king, Algol, high atop a colossal tower. The two warriors clashed when suddenly Algol disappeared, along with the tower and all their surroundings - a dimensional convergence had warped Mitsurugi back to reality before the duel could be decided.

Some time later, rumors of a great conflict back in Japan reached the wandering swordsman - a power struggle that would determine who would rule the entire country. Mitsurugi raced back to his homeland, but it was too late. The battlefield at Sekigahara was deserted. The war was over.

While most of Japan would enjoy the ensuing era of peace, thousands of masterless samurai found themselves out of favor and out of a job. With no money to continue his travels, Mitsurugi resigned himself to a quiet life as a farmer.

Then, one day, he happened to encounter a group of soldiers, freshly returned from a tour of duty abroad. The men spoke of a great sword, so mighty that even now they only dared whisper its name: Soul Calibur.

One mention of the Hero King's sword is all it took. Mitsurugi's lust for battle returned in an instant, stronger than ever.

"Algol! I'm coming for you..."

The samurai sold his entire harvest and secured transport on the first boat to the continent, seeking an end to the duel that had begin 17 years prior...
