Soulcalibur VI gets new character trailer with more quirky fighters

Today, Bandai Namco released a new character trailer for Soulcalibur VI which reveals some of the fighters in the game. Grøh and Nightmare appear to be two of the most interesting characters because of their appearance and deadly moves. Grøh might look and play like Raiden from Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, but he definitely adds to the game's appeal.

Soulcalibur VI was officially announced at The Game Awards 2017. Unfortunately, it didn't come as a surprise to many because it was leaked a few days prior. According to the publisher, the game is coming to Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 in 2018.

Fans have been waiting for the return of the legendary Soulcalibur fighting franchise for a while now, so here's hoping this latest entry doesn't disappoint. From the trailer it definitely seems like a significant evolution for the series, but only time will tell. Not only does Soulcalibur VI have to look good, but it also has to further the fighting mechanics. Just like Soulcalibur V, it needs new systems which test player skills.

There's a new fighting mechanic in Soulcalibur VI called "Reversal Edge" that integrates both offense and defense. Once a Reversal Edge is activated, you can continuously defend against an opponent's attacks when you clash against each other, and follow-up with powerful counterattacks based on the opponent's actions.

  • Haven't played Soulcaliber forever. All I remember is I used to be able to throw people off the stage to win. Looking at the trailer, it appears to still be an option.
  • Day one purchase!
  • Asher's got a penchant for "quirky" it seems.
  • I do love that word.
