Jaxel is the owner and operator of 8WAYRUN; so if you have any issues with the website, he's the one you should be bugging about it. During the days of SOULCALIBUR II, Jaxel may have been considered one of the top Talim players in the world. But since then, he has become a total scrub who can barely play at a competitive level. Keeping that in mind, you should take anything he says about the game with a massive load of salt.
Long hinted at, and long awaited for, Setsuka has just been announced for a return to SOULCALIBUR VI! Setsuka was first introduced in SOULCALIBUR III, and her moveset was adopted by Alpha Patroklos in SOULCALIBUR V. Official release date for Setsuka is set for August 4. Trailer and artwork after the break.
Along with Setsuka, also announced was the 2.20 balance update to be released alongside her, as well as the next character creation pack.
We reported a few months ago that SOULCALIBUR VI was added to the official lineup for EVO 2020. EVO 2019 being the largest SOULCALIBUR tournament ever, it was nice to see VI get another year at the premiere event. Unfortunately, due to complications caused by the SARS-CoV2 virus, the event has been officially cancelled. This was just announced on the @EVO twitter.
We've been waiting patiently for the release of the next character: Haohmaru. Finally the wait is almost over! NAMCO-BANDAI has confirmed that the next sets of DLC will be released on March 31. In addition to Haohmaru, DLC9 will contain costume pieces from Samurai Shodown; most notably costume pieces for Nakoruru.
EVO, the yearly tournament just released their games list for the upcoming championship this summer. Among the staples of Street Fighter, Smash Bros, Marvel and Tekken; SOULCALIBUR also made the list for the second year in a row! Last year's EVO was attended by over 700 players and was won by Yuttoto from Japan.
EVO 2020 takes place this year between July 31 and August 2 in Las Vegas. It is considered the largest and most important fighting game tournament in the world and players tend to save up all year to be able to attend. More information about the event can be found on the EVO website.
For a while now, we've been wondering what Haohmaru would look like in Soulcalibur. Mostly, we wanted to know how he would be different from Mitsurugi. Well at this weekend's EVO Japan 2020 tournament, they revealed the first gameplay trailer for Haohmaru.
Namco-Bandai has made it a point to mention that Haohmaru will not have a story mode in SOULCALIBUR VI. This trailer's story is just for the trailer and will not be further expanded upon in the game itself.
