Today, Bandai Namco released the launch trailer for the upcoming title Soul Calibur 6. This is the first major Soul Calibur game since 2012 and it seems Bandai Namco is just as excited for this game as fans are.
In the trailer, the announcer gets fans hyped by talking about our destiny and how it is defined by the Stage of History. We also get a glance some gameplay in the battle mode, Libra of Souls, and the Character Creation System. The cool thing about this trailer is it showcases most of the characters that are returning to the Tale of Souls.
The reason we are seeing some of these characters like Sophitia, Talim, Possessed Cervantes de Leon, and more is because the timeline of the game. Soul Calibur VI timeline is set between the events of Soul Calibur 1 and Soul Calibur 3. Bandai Namco decided to go back to the origins of the series and shine a bit more light on the characters and the story. This is something they did with last years Tekken 7 and I really feel it was a great addition to the game!
Soul Calibur VI launches tomorrow for Xbox One, PC, and PS4. We will have our review for the title posted very soon. If you are still on the fence about the game, make sure to check back here for our thoughts on this title!
