Bandai Namco has announced SoulCalibur VI for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One during The Game Awards 2017.
The soul still burns in the 1998 3D arena sword fighter series, as this next entry is slated for a 2018 release, just in time for the franchise’s 20th anniversary.
Along with the announcement came an action-packed trailer showing off the game running on Unreal Engine as well as some potential new features.
An announcement for the follow-up to 2012’s SoulCalibur V should come as no surprise after rumors started stirring up a couple of weeks ago. Furthermore, fans have been speculating and anticipating a SoulCalibur VI announcement for nearly two years.
The SoulCalibur games are famous for having interesting guest characters, with some highlights being Ezio from Assassin’s Creed and Darth Vader and Yoda from Star Wars. Unsurprisingly, SoulCalibur buffs have already started hypothesizing what pop-culture icon will be fighting alongside classic fan favorites this time around.
