About

History hides away more than one truth…

Soulcalibur VI represents the latest entry in the premier weapons-based, head-to-head fighting series and continues the epic struggle of warriors searching for the legendary Soul Swords. Taking place in the 16th century, revisit the events of the original Soulcalibur to uncover hidden truths. The heroic battles transpire in a beautiful and fluid world, with eye-popping graphics and visual appeal. Soulcalibur VI tunes the battle, movement, and visual systems so players can execute visceral and dynamic attacks with ease. Soulcalibur VI marks a new era of the historic franchise and its legendary struggle between the mighty Soul Swords!

Key Features
  • Unreal Engine – For the first time in franchise history, beautiful and jaw-dropping 3D character models, visual effects and stages rendered in Unreal Engine.
  • New Battle Mechanics – Read opponents’ attacks to execute a strategic Reversal Edge to land a counter attack while in guard.
  • Multiple Fighting Styles – Choose from a worldly roster of warriors, each with their own deadly weapons, fighting styles and visual fl are.
  • Dynamic Battles – Spectacular, high-speed battles featuring all-new battle mechanics taking gameplay to the next level.

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.

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.
