Bandai Namco has announced today that Talim will be in the Soulcalibur VI roster when the game launches this October on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
Here’s brief description of the character as outlined in a press release:
“Hailing from the Village of the Wind Diety, a remote island tribe in South-East Asia, and as the only daughter of the village shaman, Talim was raised as The Last Priestess of the Winds.
Through this role, Talim learnt the ways of the ceremonial Wind Dance, and grew up with the two ancestral elbow blades used for this sword display, Syi Sarika & Loka Luha. Though trained with the blades as part of the island’s ancient ceremonies, Talim’s vast mastery of these weapons, and control of the very wind itself, provided her with a fighting ability vastly beyond her young years.
She spent her entire life on the island, until the day a stranger arrived in Talim’s town, carrying a shard of Soul Edge itself. Talim could sense the danger of it just from this small shard, and vowed to protect the world by returning it to where it belonged – even if this meant leaving her village, and family, behind her.”
