Inferno to be playable in SoulCalibur VI

Bandai Namco announced this morning that the series antagonist, Inferno, will be making a comeback in the much awaited SoulCalibur VI.

Fans who know Inferno from past SoulCalibur games will be pleased to know that he will return as a playable character in the game. Everyone can look forward to Inferno wrecking havoc and dealing death to all of the challengers he’ll face.

Here is an overview of Inferno:

Inferno is the embodiment of Soul Edge’s will, an evil amalgamation of all the warriors’ souls it has claimed. Its motives for being are unknown. Some say it simply follows a desire to fight, maim, and gather souls. The eerie fire that surrounds Inferno is the result of the many souls the sword has reaped being burned to sustain it.

Harvested from the souls it has collected, Inferno possesses a deep knowledge of all fighting techniques – allowing it to use any weapon style with a phenomenal degree of skill.

Though its power defies standard means of measurement – it easily transcends that of any of its previous vessels. Although Inferno’s look changes with every incarnation, rest assured that it is stronger and more brutal than ever!

SoulCalibur VI will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 19. As always, check back with us near the release date for our review coverage of the game.
