Namco Bandai held a special event for SOUL CALIBUR VI this passing Thursday in San Francisco, California. Fortunately for me, I was invited to attend and compete in the exhibition portion of the event. Though there was no announcements, or any sort of reveal, we did get to experience more coverage on gameplay.
As of this morning, two more characters have been revealed for SOULCALIBUR VI! Firstly, surprising no one, Ivy makes her return to the series after becoming a staple since SC1. But in addition to Ivy, Namco has revealed a return for Zasalamel. Zasalamel first appeared in SC3, but was previously absent from SC5.
Last night, Namco had a press event in San Francisco. At this event, they revealed four upcoming characters for SOULCALIBUR VI. In addition to the expected staples of Nightmare, Xianghua and Kilik... we also got our first look at a brand new character: Grøh.
Since SOULCALIBUR VI takes place before other titles in the series, there remains some questions about a few of the characters in this trailer. Obviously with Nightmare and Kilik. Are Siegfried and Nightmare still one person? Is Kilik currently being possessed by the Kali-Yuga; though he appears to be wearing the Dvapara-Yuga. Screenshots to follow.
While an official release date for SOULCALIBUR VI has not been announced, you can none-the-less pre-order the game from Amazon.
