Soul Calibur 6 announced!

Oh my god! Soul Calibur 6 looks so good! At the game awards, they showed an exciting announcement trailer:

Soul Calibur has a special place in my heart because I spent literally hundreds of hours playing it on my Dreamcast. Soul Calibur 6 is to be set at the events of the original Soul Calibur game. Interesting… This could be why we’re seeing a younger Mitsurugi (although, wasn’t he middle aged in the first one? He looks even younger in this trailer).

Anyway, Bandai Namco released a short gameplay trailer and it’s got some really interesting stuff in it. All the character animations are really plucking my heart strings. It looks like how I remember. The blocking animations look really good and I hope they retain it in the final game. 2018 is looking to be a really good time for fighting game fans!
