Soulcalibur VI Announced for PS4, Xbox One, and PCon December 8, 2017 by Holly Williams
At long last, we’re getting Soulcalibur VI! Just the news alone is supremely exciting, but there’s also an announcement trailer showing off the first two confirmed characters, Mitsurugi and Sophitia! Take a look for yourself below:
Here’s the overview from Bandai Namco:
Enter into a new chapter of weapons-based 1 vs 1 fighting with returning fan-favorite characters and all-new gameplay systems.
The SOULCALIBUR franchise has been the premier 3D weapon-based fighting series since the original SOUL BLADE released in arcades in 1995. SOULCALIBUR VI retains the series’ signature 8-Way Run movement system, providing super smooth 3D movement, while integrating new gameplay systems such as the exciting Reversal Edge. Reversal Edge enables characters to clash against each other and follow-up with powerful counterattacks based on their opponent’s actions. Challenge the computer AI, compete against friends, or challenge fighters from around the world in high-speed dynamic battles with jaw-dropping visual effects.
Taking place in the 16th century, revisit the events of the original SOULCALIBUR to uncover hidden truths with a diverse lineup of new and returning characters with their unique fighting styles including series mainstays; Mitsurugi and Sophitia.
It’ll be very interesting to see how Soulcalibur VI turns out, giving it’s taking the story all the way back to the original Soulcalibur! I can’t wait to see more! I’m very curious about the mysterious person we got a glimpse of at the end of the trailer too. Someone new, perhaps? They look cool, whoever they are!
