Soul Calibur 6 Announced, First Gameplay Details Revealed

Soul Calibur 6 Announced, First Gameplay Details Revealed

Mitsurugi and Sophitia have been confirmed to return via the announcement trailer, while a new character with a dual-sword staff has been teased nearer its end. Finally, Bandai Namco has revealed that the highly anticipated SoulCalibur 6 will be released in 2018. The gap between Soul Calibur V and VI is sizable as well, since the last game came out on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in 2012.

"The fast and kinetic gameplay of SOULCALIBUR is on full display in SOULCALIBUR VI", said Mark Religioso, Brand Manager for BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. 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.

As far as the story goes, SoulCalibur VI takes place in the 16th century and revisits the events of the original game.




While there isn't much information available at the moment, Soulcalibur VI looks to be powered by the Unreal Engine 4.

The weapons and character roster is apparently "stellar" and even more so when "combined with a simple control layout". According to the developers, the Reversal Edge will allow characters to clash and counterattack each other based on their opponents actions; it is definitely a system I am looking forward to learning more about in the future.

The game is set for a release in 2018, and will be headed to PlayStation, PC (through Steam), and Xbox One.
