Immortalizing fans in a game is a popular choice for a contest prize these days. Namco Bandai is the latest to offer the chance with Soulcalibur V. If you visit the official website before August 5th you can enter your name, favorite weapon and fighting style. If you win the drawing then congratulations, your name will be attached to one of the game's CPU fighters. Not as cool as actually getting your face into the game, but that's what the character creator is for.
NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. is giving SOULCALIBUR® fans an exciting opportunity to be in the newest installment of the popular weapons-based fighting series, SOULCALIBUR® V. Until August 5, 2011, fans can head to http://www.soularchive.jp/npc_recruiting/ to enter their name and favorite weapon fighting style for a chance to be selected for inclusion in the retail version of SOULCALIBUR V for PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. The chosen names will appear as CPU opponents for players to battle against when the game ships next year.

SOULCALIBUR V is the continuation of the premiere weapons-based fighting game series developed by NAMCO BANDAI Games’ legendary Project Soul™ team. Set 17 years after the events in SOULCALIBUR® IV, new warriors and returning legends clash in an epic struggle against good and evil. The tale of Patroklos Alexandra, son of Sophitia Alexandra, unfolds as his family’s destiny intertwines with the Soul swords. With the series’ revolutionary 8-way run, allowing for true 3D movement during matches, a refined battle system, and stunning graphics, SOULCALIBUR V will be the top game of 2012 for anyone looking for a knock-down, drag-out fight.
