■ New System: Reversal Edge

In Soulcalibur VI, “Reversal Edge” is a new battle system that integrates both offense and defense. Once a Reversal Edge is activated, you can continuously defend against the opponent’s techniques to clash against each other and follow-up with powerful counterattacks based on the opponent’s actions. When a Reversal Edge hits, you can enjoy a powerful production like a scene from an action movie highlighted by a dynamic camera.

Judging by the look of Mitsurugi and that there's Sophitia this must be a reboot (duh!).

Those designs look closer to the ones they had in the original Soul Calibur.

I hope that this time they don't waste time in the freaking customization mode and focus in balancing the game.

The only one? That's harsh. :P

Anyways i'm a big fan of the series, so i want to get it.

Though i hope it's good. The original Soul Calibur somehow manages to be the best in the series for me. The customization, the graphics, the design of the characters and stages. It was great.

I'd say it's the only one besides Street Fighter IV that I'd want to get on day one. The rest I'd probably get when they are discounted.

I've read on Siliconera that this is actually a reboot, despite being called 6.

I... don't have a problem with that since the first is my favorite. It means it should have all the SC1 characters and new ones.

Dis gonna be gud! :)

The 1st is my favorite, but I'll wait on VI once it's hits the discount bin.

Nope, I did mean Soul Calibur.
