Just a few minutes ago, Namco Bandai officially unveiled Raphael on Twitter and YouTube. Raphael was the other character accidentally revealed at the Melbourne eSports Open last month; along with Cervantes.

Tokyo Game Show has not officially started yet, so more announcements could be coming soon, with the game's release less than a month away!

Even with leak after leak after leak; Namco was still refusing to reveal Cervantes. Well today, they finally revealed him after playing coy for weeks. For some reason, they are still delaying on revealing Raphael; but chances are, we will see him sometime during this month's Tokyo Game Show.

A series of pictures have been going around on Facebook for the past hour, claiming to have been taken at the Melbourne eSports Open today. These two pictures were posted by @Borgieman on the SOULCALIBUR Competitive Players Facebook group. Namco Bandai has not confirmed either of these two characters.

Both Cervantes and Raphael were part of the leak from three months ago, which also included Azwel. We have no other confirmation on the validity of these pictures; but we will update this post throughout the weekend if more media and pictures come from him!

During the Libra of Souls trailer released last week, Namco Bandai also revealed the final boss of the story mode. They later confirmed via an interview with @Kayane that the as yet unnamed character would be playable. Well today, they formally announced him as "Azwel, the Leader of Humanity".

It appears that Azwel will be similar to Algol in that he fights using the manifestations of Soul Edge and Soul Calibur.

Motohiro Okubo announces Astaroth and Seong Mi-Na at EVO 2018

Right before the Tekken finals at EVO 2018, Okubo stepped onto the stage and presented the world premiere for Astaroth and Seong Mi-Na! Sure, the appearance of Astaroth was a forgone conclusion the moment Maxi was revealed; but Mi-Na was not. In fact, I don't believe anyone thought she would actually be in the game with Kilik already being on the board.

It's Getting Hot in Here... Voldo is Back!

Probably the most unique character and move-set on the stage of history, is returning for SOULCALIBUR VI. Voldo seems to have all his usual stuff; mantis crawl. caliostro rush, landfish, a fondness for leather, and a penis sheath.

SOULCALIBUR VI Story Mode Revealed at E3 2018
  • 4,305

During E3's open floor day today, Namco unveiled a brand new trailer for SOULCALIBUR VI. This new trailer focuses directly on the story mode for the upcoming game. As you know, being a fan, the SOULCALIBUR series has always had a rich and featured story. While the story mode for the previous game was lackluster, focusing mostly on Patroklos and Pyrrha (who are not in SOULCALIBUR VI), it appears that this new game's story mode will span the gamut of characters. Probably similar to how story modes in NRS games work. The new trailer, also soft-reveals Inferno as the resident "random select" character, a collector's edition of the game... and a release date for October 19!

Massive update to the 8WAYRUN platform!

  • 4,321

You should have noticed by now, that this website has been receiving a series of updates throughout the weekend. Besides the visual changes, the code behind the website has been rebuilt from the ground up. This has been a near 6 month long project which has finally come to fruition this weekend. With any big updates, there are not only a lot of changes, but also possibly a lot of bugs. If you discover any bugs, usability problems, or perhaps just have some feature requests, let me know.

This website is now completely ad-free! No ad-banners, no ad-links, no native ads; ever. Not even to guests. I won't be going through the majority of the changes in this post, because the majority of changes are behind the scenes and only moderators/administrators will notice them. There are however, a few front-end changes that may be of concern.
Details after the break.
