Soul Calibur VI
Setsuka has been revealed as the latest Soul Calibur VI DLC fighter. Accompanying her are brand new costumes and a free content update. Soul Calibur VI had its own fair share of announcements during the Japan Fighting Game Publisher’s Roundtable live stream last night. The biggest was the reveal of beloved fighter Setsuka, who will be coming to the DLC pack 11 later this week.
Setsuka, the deceptive parasol-blade wielding fighter from SoulCalibur III and IV is making her return to the series as DLC in Soul Calibur VI. Development on the game’s second season pass has been impacted massively by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, but the team’s finally ready to get things moving again.
Setsuka arrives next week, on the 4th August. She launches alongside a new update, which includes a range of character adjustments, a new stage, and more.
In other Soul Calibur VI news, Princess Hildegard von Krone was revealed to be coming to the game as its latest DLC fighter, as a part of the Season 2 DLC pass. Other returning fighters from the franchise include Yoshimitsu, Voldo, and Seong Mi-Na and Astaroth.
2B from Nier: Automata also made an appearance in the weapons-based fighting game. 2B is an android and the protagonist of NieR: Automata. She wields two swords as her primary weapons, although she also wields spears and combat bracers. Her pod support system helps her in battles by allowing her to glide, and attack enemies from a distance.
On the official Japanese website, Bandai Namco warned players about NSFW creations, specifically that if you make an inappropriate character in the Create a Soul mode, you may get banned from online play.
