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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Starting Friday, August 3rd, Namco Bandai will be hosting a multitude of exhibitions. From a 192 man singles tournament via Friday, to a Teams 5v5 event. Myself and @Party Wolf will be in attendance, among other notable competitors! Make sure to tune in both Friday and Saturday!
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.
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.
