Soul Calibur gets its own equivalent of Mount Rushmore... Kind of

Pyrrha and Mitsurugi immortalised in Swedish granite

That's right, to celebrate the launch of Soul Calibur V Namco Bandai have had two characters from the series' latest effort into the side of a mountain.

New character Pyrrha and series favourite Mitsurugi have had their likenesses carved into the granite face of a mountain near Tanum in Sweden.

The master stonemason in charge of the engraving, Goran Andersson said, "This is the by far most complex and detailed engraving I have ever performed, but it was very fun to do."

The engraving is located close to a UNESCO-protected world heritage site filled with Bronze-Age stone carvings.
