After what many have seen as a revival of the Tekken franchise in 2017, it’s time for Bandai Namco to shift their sights onto their other major fighting game franchise. In the coming year, it’s finally time to return to the tale of souls and swords eternally retold with Soulcalibur VI.
Dressed in his finest ceremonial robe, Katsuhiro Harada announced Soulcalibur VI on stage at The Game Awards. Running on the Unreal Engine, this next entry in the weapon fighter showed its stuff by featuring franchise staples Mitsurugi and Sophitia duking it out in a Roman arena. Attacks featured layers of particle effects beyond what we’ve seen in the past, although it’s hard to say whether that’s just for show at this time. In any case, we’ll know soon enough, as Soulcalibur VI will take its place on the stage of history in 2018 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.
