SoulCalibur 6 is the long-awaited sequel to Bandai Namco's weapons fighting game. Billed as a retelling of sorts to the first SoulCalibur, SoulCalibur 6 includes a lot of past-favorite characters with new designs including Nightmare, Ivy, Sophitia, and more. Geralt from The Witcher series will be the guest character for this entry into the franchise.
