    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.

    SOULCALIBUR VI - PS4/XB1/PC - The Agent in Black (Character announcement trailer)

    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.

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. #jaxelisalwaysright #burnitdown

      Getting 4 character announcements makes the long wait definitely worth it. Thanks Namco/PS/whoever.
      Now about those characters...

      Grøh: Not gonna lie, when i first saw the artwork in the beginning of the video i immediately thought it was Alpha Patroklos... but THANKFULLY, that's not the case. He seems like a mix of Z.W.E.I & A Pat when it comes to the looks. I like it, honestly. Gameplay-wise he's very interesting too. He's got a pretty neat-looking moveset(s). Can't wait for more gameplay footage.

      Nightmare: Nice to see Nighty back. The first thing that stood out for me, from the ENTIRE trailer when i watched it for the first time was his Critical Edge. Holy fucking hell, that was beautiful! I'm probably not gonna play him either ways 'cause he's never been my kinda fighting style, but i totally appreciate the idea and work put into this that CA animation. Makes me wonder what they'll do with the rest of the characters.

      Xianghua: Nice to see another classic character coming back. I was never into X or her movelist tbh, but it's definitely nice to see her back instead of her daughter.

      Kilik: A similar case to X, i was never into Kilik but it's nice to see him back and not as a mimic. About malfested Kilik, am i the only one who thinks that that's just an alternative CA? I mean, he was regular kilik who transformed in a CA-like animation and initiated the punch. I don't think it's an entirely different fighting style.

      All in all, this was an awesome reveal and i can't wait for more footage from EVO.

      4 Characters is interesting, meaning the roster have 6 characters so far, makes me wonder how many characters they will reveal, batches of 4 seems too good to be true
    5. thenewperson
      ...I really hope we can skip CE animations in this game.
    6. Blackout
      I'm almost certain that's not going to happen.
    7. AndyrooSC
      I may have watched this like 30 times and I don't intend to stop
    8. geeza101
      Nightmare is on a horse. Your request is invalid.
    9. HogisGuy
      Groh sounds like a medieval emo Terminator. Still like what i'm seeing. Want to see Maxi soon.

      Yeah yeah nightmare on a horse is dank and all, but where is my foot-clapping ninja?
    11. Itami
      Xianghua's design is so cool....It has always been cool. She always has the best outfits imo.

      Nightmare looks fucking incredible. The horse blew me away, never though I'd see something so cool.

      They didn't show much (and why would they choose to showcase his side throw of all things?) but the good news his grim stride is back at 1:11 in the trailer. His 3(b) NSS b:A is back as well. Looks like they put his 22k into GS. And he has his old 4B back with the GB properties!

      Nightmare looks sick, real happy they've further developed his Azure Knight look with the torn cape and a phantom horse which he then proceeds to rush people with. Also loving that his moves are based from his more unique SCIII - SCV incarnation. If it's just Nightmare, then I'll take what I can get since I also main him, but I'm hoping that Siegfried, with a revamped look of his own (with a cool looking cape as well?) plus his modern moveset will also be on the roster.
    14. Soulcaliburmaxi
      Yup same here lol.
    15. Dark Knightmare

      Overall I like nightmare's look, but the chest spike looks weird and the cape doesnt look like it belongs. Also going by his previous designs, shouldn't the cape be red?
    16. weshookhands
      Nice to have them back!

      About Groh, I was a little underwhelmed by his fighting style tidbits tbh. :/

      Same goes for the animation of Kilik's CE...seemed kinda stiff to me.

      Love Nightmare's cape!

      What's it about the concept art, though? Has it been confirmed that it's Takuji Kawano's work? To me, perspective seems a little off in Sophie's (head), Groh's (arms) and Kilik's (arms) artworks...

      I usually don't like to get my hopes up, but fuck it, they're up! They're WAY UP! This is feeling like Soul Calibur again!
      @1:05 Is Nightmare doing Chief Hold? Then that must mean...
