Soulcalibur 6 is the first mainline entry in the melee fighting series since the 2012 sequel, and a lot is riding on its success.
With the success of Tekken 7, it made sense that Harada and team’s next project would be a revival of the beloved Soulcalibur series with Soulcalibur 6.
And here we are, less than a year from its reveal, Soulcalibur 6 is nearly ready for release.
Soulcalibur 6 brings back the character creator. Not only that, you’ll be able to take your created abomination through the Libra of Souls campaign. If you prefer to take in the story, the original Chronicle of Souls of story mode is also here.
One of the biggest newcomers in Soulcalibur 6 is the Witcher’s Geralt, who stars in his first game as a guest character. On the gameplay end, players can look forward to the Reversal Edge battle system, which should make for great comebacks.
