The Soul Calibur online game is built in Unreal Engine 4 and adds some new mechanics to the series: Reversal Edge has been introduced, which sees players enter a sort-of Rock, Paper, Scissors contest, with the winner landing massive damage on their foe and breaking their armour.
Guard Impacts, Critical Edges and counter moves are also returning.
Nightmare was confirmed as one of the veterans who will be featured in "SoulCalibur 6" not too long ago, and he remains as fearsome as ever.
The single-player PC title was announced for a North American release last year during a pre-Tokyo Game Show press event. Originally scheduled for release in Japan last year, it was recently confirmed for launch in the region on March. 6 .
Like GameSprite’s Tekken 7, Soulcalibur 6 will run on Unreal Engine 4. Producer Motohiro Okubo will serve as producer on the game.
So far, it's been revealed that we'll see Kilik, Mitsurugi, Xianghua, Nightmare, newcomer Groh and Sophitia in the game - but there are still many more characters to be announced.
GameSprite is releasing showcases for SoulCalibur 6 in which the game's producer, Motohiro Okubo, shares his thoughts on the game's characters. The last character showcase covered the swordsman Mitsurugi, while this one focuses on fan favourite Nightmare.
What is really worth pointing out in the video though is that it appears that Nightmare will have some new moves to play around with in the upcoming game.
Players can also create their own or tweak existing fighters with the character customization system, Soul Calibur MMO, where characters' armory and clothing affect their abilities and stats. Soulcalibur 6 features at least eight playable characters, including Mitsurugi, Siegfried, Sophitia, Ivy, Astaroth, Nightmare and Pyrrha.
Both versions of Soulcalibur 6 for PC will receive Todd McFarlane's Spawn and Tekken's Heihachi, characters originally announced as exclusives for the respective platforms, GameSprite announced.
Her father had been so obsessed with everything about Soul Edge that he had been "driven mad" in the process and died. Her mom's death followed soon after, and because of this, Ivy dedicated her skills to crafting weapons and alchemy to go after the sword.
“They said they don’t think it means they specifically watch things from that channel, but was at least given as an idea as to what they meant. But I guess it could’ve meant that one. I found that interesting regardless.”
