About

History hides away more than one truth…
Soulcalibur VI represents the latest entry in the premier weapons-based, head-to-head fighting series and continues the epic struggle of warriors searching for the legendary Soul Swords. Taking place in the 16th century, revisit the events of the original Soulcalibur to uncover hidden truths. The heroic battles transpire in a beautiful and fluid world, with eye-popping graphics and visual appeal. Soulcalibur VI tunes the battle, movement, and visual systems so players can execute visceral and dynamic attacks with ease. Soulcalibur VI marks a new era of the historic franchise and its legendary struggle between the mighty Soul Swords!


Key Features

  • Unreal Engine – For the first time in franchise history, beautiful and jaw-dropping 3D character models, visual effects and stages rendered in Unreal Engine.
  • New Battle Mechanics – Read opponents’ attacks to execute a strategic Reversal Edge to land a counter attack while in guard.
  • Multiple Fighting Styles – Choose from a worldly roster of warriors, each with their own deadly weapons, fighting styles and
    visual fl are.
  • Dynamic Battles – Spectacular, high-speed battles featuring all-new battle mechanics taking gameplay to the next level.
New System: Reversal Edge

In Soulcalibur VI, “Reversal Edge” is a new battle system that integrates both offense and defense. Once a Reversal Edge is activated, you can continuously defend against the opponent’s techniques to clash against each other and follow-up with powerful counterattacks based on the opponent’s actions. When a Reversal Edge hits, you can enjoy a powerful production like a scene from an action movie highlighted by a dynamic camera.

I'm beyond hyped for this. I adored Soul Calibur back in the day. We should be getting a gameplay demo at PSX today.

It seems they're basically pulling an MK9 with this game.

It looks so beautiful !

SCV was fun, but they removed so many good and beloved characters. Natsu was cool though.


Here's hoping they bring back some classic characters back.

They better bring Ivy back. It's not Soulcalibur without boobs and chain whips.

Wow, Nightmare with the Horse. And he's back in his classic look! No more over-the-top edgy spiky armors and stuff. Though the torn cape was a really nice touch. And I see he has some of his old movesets back in SC2, which would make sense since this was still Sieg.

Groh... Hmmm.... I don't know what to think of him. He looked like just another Coldsteel the Hedgehog no. 3. His movesets look cool but his design... MEH. We already have Kilik as bearer of the Soul Edge Fragment with the Berserk mode and all. Meh.

You know... as an Ivy main... I would have preferred her to have more armor. But eh... well, this IS her selling point so that's not really saying much. But at least I can still look forward to her alternate outfit.

And I REALLY do hope Setsuka make it in. And speaking of which, I feel like we're getting Taki next. Either her or Voldo, or Cervantes.

I thought she looked better in SCV. My biggest gripe with some of the character designs is not the fan service per se, but how the breasts of the female characters grew larger with each new instalment to the point where it looked like a parody. At least it's not as bad as in SCIV.

And I REALLY do hope Setsuka make it in. And speaking of which, I feel like we're getting Taki next. Either her or Voldo, or Cervantes.
SCIII Setsuka? Yes! SCIV abomination Setsuka? Hell no.

Sadly, I think Taki will never regain her original Soul Edge and SoulCalibur body proportions again but instead double as an alternative to Ivy. At least Ivy was created with the concept that "sex sells" in mind.

I'm hoping for Hwang and Maxi myself. It's heavily rumoured that the latter turns out to be gay, which given how flamboyant he is really wouldn't come as a big surprise.

But speaking of fan service, where are all the half naked guys? Why's it only the girls? Most of the male characters so far are wearing heavy armour, robes and what not. Kilik being the only exception. Even Dead or Alive 5 provides a better balance!

Never got the chance to play SC4 so I think it's safe to say SC3 Setsu. Since we now got rid of the twins, it's only fair to have her in the roster.

Rock, also better be there. And I hope he's not an Astaroth clone anymore, his grapple commands are always fun to perform. Also, I think Hilda would be also welcome but that's just me; I took a liking to her in SCV.
