Soulcalibur VI Groh, Kilik, Nightmare, and Xianghua details, gameplay, and screenshots


Bandai Namco has detailed newly announced Soulcalibur VI fighters Groh, Kilik, Nightmare, and Xianghua on the PlayStation Blog, and released screenshots and artwork of each fighter. Additionally, several publications have gone up with gameplay videos of the characters.

Get the details below.


Groh



The mysterious Aval Organization was a secret group with origins rooted in ancient times. They say the group came to be when a king used the spirit sword to defeat its cursed counterpart, and with his dying breath, entrusted them with both the blade and his unfinished mission. Each new generation has taken on the group’s mission to rid the world of “Outsider” — those connected with the cursed sword. One such member was Grøh, about whom little is known save for that he was a fearsome warrior. Though his fighting style is shrouded in mystery, he is believed to have wielded two swords. Some also say he kept a certain technique close to his chest…

Grøh utilizes the Aval Twinblade Swordsmanship that often employs multiple consecutive slashes. This has a major disadvantage in that a careless practitioner runs the risk of injuring themselves. As such, it takes a lot of practice to use this style effectively. Dual-swordsmanship also allows for the swords to be split in two and wielded separately. This tactic is one of the many ways a wielder can use to surprise their opponent, giving them the opportunity to string together a series of blows that lead to a final, deadly slash.







Kilik



After being abandoned as a child, Kilik was raised by the monks of the Ling-Sheng Su temple where he was raised to be a proficient fighter. While never knowing his true family, Kilik befriended another orphan named Xianglian and a bond formed between them stronger than even the closest of siblings. They grew into proficient warriors, and their efforts were rewarded with each of them being chosen to inherit one of the temple’s three sacred treasures. However, on the night before the official handover ceremony, fate began to stir…

Kilik is proficient in the fighting style of the rod. Among the many rod styles surviving in China today, the techniques of Ling-Sheng Su are said to be among the most refined and powerful. The rod is a large and difficult weapon to master, however, the freedom of movement, effectiveness at any range, and offensive and defensive capabilities make it an appealing choice over other long weapons such as the spear.






Nightmare




Appearing from out of the shadows like the advent of nightfall, this barbaric knight in azure armor reaps the souls of the living as if they were mere stalks of corn. His name came to represent fear and desperation to all who heard it. Those who found out that the rumors were true, that he was no fairytale villain, would be struck down in a single blow before they could even open their mouths to scream.

Nightmare carries the demon sword Soul Edge, a blade that has been part of many battles and retains the memories of those who wielded it, and those who faced them. Such memories influence the fighting style of the blade’s current master, so even if its wielder lacks experience in combat, they can battle like a seasoned warrior. When facing Nightmare, one must never forget that he is able to at least partially unleash the power of the sword. If he does, be prepared for a blow designed to kill in one fell cut.






Xianghua



Xianghua’s mother was from the prestigious Chai family in Beijing, and taught Xianghua swordsmanship from a young age, treating her with a firm but loving hand. Xianghua sensed these moments held some deeper significance than her mother was letting on. Perhaps it had something to do with her father, a man she never knew and was told had passed away. Two years after her mother’s death, she decided to focus on the way of the sword. With every passing day, her passion burned stronger than before.

Xianghua learned how to wield a sword from her mother and from a young age was enraptured by the beauty of her mother practicing the sword. Xianghua’s personal style relies less on taking her opponent down with head-on attacks and more on feints and landing a decisive blow only after her opponent has left an opening for her to exploit.






Soulcalibur VI is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam in 2018.

Why is Kilik possessed by Soul edge? Makes no sense.

It's dates from the story of the 1st soul calibur.

Soul edge released some stuff that made people go berserk and they started killing each other, Kilik was inflicted by that and he slaughtered many of the temple warriors including Xianglian, before she passed away she managed to bring Kilik back to normal. Afterwards Kilik became Edge Masters disciple in order to keep the evil power within under control.

Don't know if the reboot will chance the story, knowing the trend they will probably give this Evil Kilik his own slot wich will be a waste.

It looks like a power up form to me.

Still i thought that thing around his chest was supposed to immune him against it.

Meh... it's difficult to know to story of Soul calibur. They will have a story mode though, so i'm sure we will see something.


Btw i saw some footage of the new characters and Nightmare has a super where he gets in a smoke horse and charges the enemy. Super cool!
