A Tale of Souls and Swords, Eternally Retold. SoulCalibur VI announced!

-

During The Game Awards 2017, many new titles were announced alongside the recipients of the awards. And in a flurry of information you may have missed something. But here is one of the biggest announcements: SoulCalibur VI will be releasing in 2018 on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

The trailer that was shown during the awards starts with Sophitia and Mitsurugi battling it out, with both looking a lot younger than before. SoulCalibur VI will take place during the 16th Century and revisits events from the first game to learn more about those events.

We then see the main swords in the game, Soul Calibur and Soul Edge before brief flashbacks to many different periods in time. The trailer finishes with a glimpse of an unknown character holding a double-ended sword. Also in line with the first game, SoulCalibur VI is a 20th anniversary celebration of the first SoulCalibur game, released in arcades back in 1998.

The familiar sword and weapon-based gameplay will return but with an all new Reversal Edge feature that gives players a stronger balance between attacking and defending. If defending while Reversal Edge is activated then lethal counter attacks can be delivered making sure you quickly turn defending into all out attacking.

Also returning are many of the classic roster from SoulCalibur but also a few new faces that will all be announced in good time.

SoulCalibur VI will be found utilising the power of Unreal Engine 4, the same engine as Tekken 7, Bandai Namco’s last fighting game.

SoulCalibur VI currently does not have a firm release date, but we at least know it will be released in 2018. For now, the below trailer is all we have to go on. Fighting games have had a renaissance in 2017 and with the SoulCalibur series held amongst highest regard this renaissance looks set to continue in 2018.

Are you a fan of the series? Which returning characters would you like to see come back? Let us know in the comments below!
