It's happening!! There will be 15 characters and 9 stages available. Most likely, there is only the ranked mode function since that's all that is described. September 28th 8AM PDT to September 30th 8PM PDT will be the times you can play the demo, but downloads start on 27th. It's unknown if you need PS+ or Xbox Live. Which characters will you play first?
@Hayate, veteran SOULCALIBUR player from France, had the honor to try out the finalized version of SOULCALIBUR VI recently. In this video, Hayate shows off some of the single player modes in SC6. There is also some small footage of the new characters too, which includes a little bit of Astaroth and Azwel. There are also some features that have not been discussed before from Namco in this video. Hayate shows off some of the tutorial function of SC6 as well as a CaS version of Lizardman with the Lizardman fighting style.
In this video you can see all of the modes that will be in SOULCALIBUR VI. We now have confirmation of Museum as well as Arcade battle. Museum mode let's you see models and concept arts of the characters and gives you additional information on them. Arcade will have the traditional 8 opponent ladder that you will have to climb and defeat. It's unknown if Arcade will have arcade endings, but most likely there won't be considering Soul Chronicle exists with a story for each character.
Gamescom trailers are starting to get pumped out by Bandai Namco and we got two awesome reveals. Libra of Soul is a new game mode for SOULCALIBUR VI where you make your own character for an alternate story. You will be able to travel, complete missions, and meet SOULCALIBUR VI characters along the way.
In the Libra of Souls trailer, we can see that there is a new antagonist that will be in SOULCALIBUR VI. Considering the quality of his details, it is safe to say that he will be a playable character. Based on appearances alone, he will most likely be a magic staff user.
The wind priestess makes her return to SOULCALIBUR VI after being absent from SOULCALIBUR V. From the trailer it seems that she is very capable of block string pressure and has a new parry where she has the option to blast you with wind after it. She looks like a good return to form for the character. How old is she in this game by the way? SOULCALIBUR VI comes out October 19th, 2018.
I am sure most of you know what E3 is, but in case you aren't aware, E3 is the the Electronic Entertainment Expo hosted in Los Angeles, California. You can see new titles that have been recently released/announced and try games that have a demo on the floor. I was given the opportunity to go to this and check out the newest version of SOULCALIBUR VI as well other things at the event. I'll have shout outs at the bottom for the people who helped me get to the event!
Before I get into the details of E3 2018, let's talk about what's new in SOULCALIBUR VI that was announced this week. As many of you have seen, SOULCALIBUR VI now has a story trailer and a release date. The game is coming out on October 19, 2018. We will also be getting a collectors edition that comes with all of the DLC, art book, soundtrack, and a Sophitia figure. SOULCALIBUR VI will be on PS4, Xbox One, and PC for players.
During E3 interviews, Motohiro Okubo was asked whether or not SOULCALIBUR VI would come out this year. He said with absolute certainty that it would be released before the end of 2018. Okubo was also asked if there would be other guest character beyond Geralt from The Witcher. It turns out that Geralt will be the only guest character in the story mode as well as the only character on the disc. He also said we should stay tuned for the appearance of other characters down the line.
Earlier this morning, Bandai Namco finally revealed the Nunchuk Pirate. In this trailer we can see that he has been changed to manage his stances for longer durations to get Maxi-mum flair. It seems that he has kept his previous voice actor, a positive demeanor, and gained a new tan. I'm a huge fan of his CE and I can't wait to see how he is played. Only thing that has left me curious is how often he will be able to discourage GI and RE in SOULCALIBUR VI. Enjoy the video and screenshots.
Breaking up the usual pattern of reveals every Thursday, Taki's trailer was shown off on a niconico stream today. Thankfully, Flying Wonkey from AvoidingThePuddle sniped the stream archive before they took it down. It appears that her trailer was not meant to be revealed this early considering the trailer is not officially uploaded on any major channel.
In the Taki trailer you can see that she has tattoos when she does ninjutsu techniques. You can also see some of the new Indian Port stage. We'll update the article with a higher resolution video when Namco releases it.
Bandai Namco revealed Siegfried today. It should be interesting to see how they incorporate him into the game considering he is also Nightmare in SOULCALIBUR VI. Returning stages Proving Grounds and Indian Port from SC3 have been revealed as well.
