The newest chapter in the eternal battle between the demon sword Soul Edge and the Soul Calibur spirit sword begins today with the release of Soulcalibur VI. It’s been over six years since fans have been able to take up arms as their favorite weapon masters, so hopefully this newest outing will make the wait worth it.
Soulcalibur VI is actually something of a remake of the very first Soulcalibur, with its story serving as a retelling of the events immediately following Siegfried’s transformation in to Nightmare. Players will follow Kilik, Xianghua and others as they journey across the world on a quest to stop Soul Edge before it can wreck its unique brand of chaos. In addition to this, players can create their own character and story in Libra of Souls, enjoy the series’ classic Arcade, Online and Training modes, and can even take on Soul Edge as Geralt of Rivia for the very first time. There’s a lot here, so fans probably won’t be coming away from this one disappointed.
Soulcalibur VI is now available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
