YoRHa 2B Joins the Stage of History
  • 7,872

Today, Namco-Bandai officially announced the first DLC character for SOULCALIBUR VI. Probably the most fan requested character I've seen on Facebook, 2B from Nier: Automata will also be included with her own stage and music. If you haven't previously played Nier: Automata, I highly recommend it. It's not the game you think it is, and really tries to subvert what you expect from video games in the first place.

SOULCALIBUR VI is only a week away, and Qanba is honoring it's release, with a special edition of their ever popular Obsidian Joystick for PS4/PS3/PC! I personally believe this to be the best looking SOULCALIBUR related arcade stick I've ever seen. The stick officially releases during the week of October 22, but you can pre-order the stick right now on Newegg or directly from Qanba. We here at 8WAYRUN will be raffling off at least one of these beautiful arcade sticks.

Welcome Back to the Stage of History... Inferno?
  • 3,369

Okay, so we've known for a while that Inferno was going to be in the game. We've even seen gameplay videos with him. But we never knew what to make of it. Was he a mimic character like he has been in older games? Or was Namco considering him his own character. Well with the release of their newest trailer, we now have it confirmed; Namco is considering Inferno to be his own character.

What we've seen so far shows us that Inferno uses a modified Nightmare moveset, with slightly different properties, and a permanent soul-charge. If your immediate reaction is "this seems kind of broke", you're not alone in that sentiment. In fact, I think Namco agrees with you as well, as he will not be playable in online ranked mode. As such, he may not be tournament legal either.

Cervantes FINALLY Officially Revealed by Namco Bandai

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.

CONFIRMED: Raphael and Cervantes playable at Melbourne eSports Open

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.
