Bandai Namco has now announced a new character that will be joining the ever growing roster of Soulcalibur VI. With this new addition, the game should have well over 20 characters for you to play at launch.
Bandai Namco not only provided more information about Raphael in Soulcalibur VI, but they also revealed a new trailer where you can see some gameplay footage for the character. Raphael has always been a fan favorite in the series so it’s great to see him back in this new iteration.
Anyway, more information for the character was revealed in a press release. You can read all of the details posted down below.
“Raphael’s fighting style is that of a fencer, delivering deadly blows to opponents through powerful thrusts and slashes. Processing great speed and agility, Raphael is at once difficult to hit and defend against when wielding his signature weapon, Flambert.
Born to France’s aristocratic Sorel family, Raphael was taught the ways of the upper classes from a young age. When he was older he learned medical practices and was rigorously trained in the art of swordsmanship. He used his knowledge and talent with the rapier to keep his family on top during the political wars that were common in those times. His cold nature, though, gained him many enemies. When the political balance shifted during the Evil Seed event, his family handed him over to the enemy to save themselves. Raphael eventually escaped to the slums where he was saved by a young girl by the name of Amy.”
You can also read the roster for the game as announced so far. In the near future, we should know more info about DLC characters that will be out. Soulcalibur VI releases on October 19th, 2019 for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One platforms.
