The Soulcalibur franchise is known for guest characters and Soulcalibur VI is no different. Today, Bandai Namco and CD Projekt RED announced that Geralt, the main character in The Witcher series, will be a part of the game.
Geralt was trained at the School of the Wolf and is considered one of the deadliest monster hunters around. He possesses quick reflexes and strength, as well as superior sword skills. Players who choose to fight as Geralt will utilize a combination of swordplay, potions and magic. The best part is that Doug Cockle — the English voice actor for Geralt — returns in Soulcalibur VI. The fortress of Kaer Morhen will also be featured as a playable arena.
Marcin Momot, the Community Lead at CD Projekt RED, issued the following statement alongside Geralt's Soulcalibur VI reveal.
Soulcalibur is well known in the fighting games genre for including iconic guest characters. When we were approached with the idea of doing a crossover, we thought our community would really enjoy playing as The Witcher. We've collaborated with Bandai Namco artists to faithfully recreate Geralt, and shared original Witcher 3 assets like Geralt's model, animations, and weapons. I think Bandai Namco did an outstanding job of capturing all the details and introducing The Witcher to Soulcalibur in a way fans of both series will enjoy.
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.
