Get all the info on Bandai Namco’s forthcoming Soul Calibur 6 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Find out the Soul Calibur 6 release date and the characters announced so far. Plus the first gameplay footage.

Soul Calibur 6 has been a game fans of the long-running fighting series have been asking for, and their patience has been rewards. Bandai Namco announced Soul Calibur 6 at the Game Awards 2017, and it’s coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Get all the latest info on here, including news on the Soul Calibur 6 release date and the characters that will be included.

Soul Calibur 6 Release Date

Soul Calibur 6, announced in December at the Game Awards 2017, has been given a 2018 release date. Given this was the first time the game was seen we’d guess that an early 2018 release is out of the question. We’ll bring you more details on the Soul Calibur 6 release date as Bandai Namco homes in on a more specific date. The first Soul Calibur 6 gameplay footage can be seen in the video below.

Soul Calibur 6 is built using the Unreal Engine 4 and can be seen in action in the brief reveal trailer just below. As you can see, it looks very much like Soul Calibur, but it’s hard to get much from such a short video clip.

Soul Calibur 6 Characters

It’s still early days with the Soul Calibur 6 reveals, so we currently don’t know many of the characters confirmed to be in the game. The characters shown off so far are listed for you below, and we’ll update this page with more names as they are announced.

A brand new trailer released on January 25 showing off three more characters: Groh, Kilik, Xianghua, and Nightmare.

  • Sophitia Alexandra - Sophita has appeared in some form in all the Soul Calibur games as well as Soul Edge.
  • Mitsurugi - Mitsurugi is another Soul Calibur veteran, having appeared in all the games and Soul Edge.
  • Kilik
  • Groh
  • Nightmare
  • Xianghua
  • Ivy
  • Zasalamel

Soul Calibur 6 Switch

While there is a fairly large group who want Soul Calibur 6 on the Nintendo Switch, Namco Bandai has only announced the game for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. While a Switch version of Soul Calibur 6 isn't impossible, it doesn't currently appear to be on the cards.

There’s very little info in the Soul Calibur 6 reveal trailer, but it’s clear that the series’ gameplay trademarks are all present: weapons, sidestepping to avoid attacks, parrying, and blocking. As we said, it all looks very Soul Calibur. Look out for more info soon.

His love of gaming started soon after, which essentially meant he bought every video game magazine available and worked numerous part-time jobs as a child in order to afford costly N64 games. He created UK site, of which he was the Editor for over a decade. He now doesn't like circuses.
