Soulcalibur 6 announced, coming in 2018

Posted December 09, 2017

So far, we've seen a young Mitsurugi and Sophitia, as well as a teaser for another character who might be a brand new combatant.

According to Bandai Namco, SoulCalibur VI will have an "epic" story mode, revamped gameplay mechanics, and "dynamic fights enhanced by cinematic-styled combat". This is one game we can't wait to get our hands on. Not a lot to glean fighting system wise, beyond it being the 3D, weapons-based beat-em-up we've known for years. This could be a new revision in the gameplay mechanic. Reversal Edge enables characters to clash against each other and follow-up with powerful counterattacks based on their opponent's actions. It's been almost 6 years since the release of Banda Namco's Soulcalibur V, so it's about time for a new installment - and so far, based on The Game Awards reveal, we like what we see. Meanwhile, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus scored the Best Action Game award, but we still didn't have a victor for Game of the Year by the time Soulcalibur VI made its teasing debut. There are also a handful of spinoffs, including a free-to-play version of SoulCalibur V on the PlayStation Network, and a game designed specifically for Apple's iOS platform.

While there is no set date yet, the game will arrive sometime in 2018 and will be available for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam.
