The next stage of history has been set, as Soulcalibur VI hits Playstation 4, Xbox One, and Steam today. The 3D weapons-based fighter comes back, and the return of some fan-favorite characters, new mechanics, and new characters await. The tradition of guest characters also returns, with Geralt of Rivia from The Witcher joining the game. The premier 3D weapons-based fighter since 1995, Soulcalibur VI uses Unreal Engine 4 and retains the signature 8-Way Run movement system, smooth visuals, and incredible combat mechanics such as the Reversal Edge System. The Reversal Edge system enables new players to challenge more seasoned players; once initiated, both characters enter a rock-paper-scissors mini-game to see who will come out on top to deal large amounts of damage. SOULCALIBUR VI will also present a challenging single player mode; while offering players the opportunity to compete in multiplayer mode against friends or challenge fighters from around the world in dynamic battles.
“The SOULCALIBUR franchise is steeped in lore and embodies a long legacy of ground-breaking weapons-based gameplay that has set the franchise apart from other games in the fighting genre for decades,” said Mark Religioso, Brand Manager for BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. “SOULCALIBUR VI builds upon this great legacy with a stellar lineup of characters and weapons, additional storyline progression, and knock-down drag-out fun!”
