Geralt of Rivia from The Witcher series is already in Soulcalibur VI, but now another guest is coming to the game. Bandai Namco has announced that the character of 2B from Nier: Automata will be in the game as future DLC.
Not only will she be added to the playable roster of SoulCalibur VI, but she will also get her own stage which is based on the Nier: Automata video game. No release date or price has been revealed, but the character will be coming to the game very soon. More details are posted below.
“A new guest character will be joining the stage of history! Meet YoRHa No. 2 Type B from Square Enix’s NieR: Automata. 2B and her dual blades, Virtuous Contract & Virtuous Treaty, are designed for combat against machine lifeforms, employing acrobatic leaps and mid-air slashes, lightning-fast evasions and perfectly coordinated strikes! She will be making her way to the #SOULCALIBURVI along with her own stage and background music.”
This is the second time that a Bandai Namco fighting game is using a character from a Square Enix title. Last year’s Tekken 7 game added Noctis who most famously appeared in the critically acclaimed Final Fantasy XV video game.
Soulcalibur VI is out now for you to buy on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. You can read an overview of the game below as seen in a press release.
The SOULCALIBUR franchise has been the premier 3D weapon-based fighting series since the original SOUL BLADE released in arcades in 1995. Utilizing the power of UNREAL® Engine 4, SOULCALIBUR VI retains the series’ signature 8-Way Run movement system, delivers super smooth 3D movements, and integrates new gameplay mechanics for newcomers to the franchise such as the Reversal Edge system. The Reversal Edge system enables new players to challenge more seasoned players; once initiated, both characters enter a rock-paper-scissors mini-game to see who will come out on top to deal large amounts of damage. SOULCALIBUR VI will also present a challenging single player mode; while offering players the opportunity to compete in multiplayer mode against friends or challenge fighters from around the world in dynamic battles presented with jaw-dropping visual effects.
