Soulcalibur 6 was announced at last night's Game Awards, and while the teaser was brief there were a lot of questions. Why did series main characters Mitsurugi and Sophitia look so young? What other characters will join them in the sixth entry? While a lot of these details are still kept under wraps, we know now that Soulcalibur 6 takes place primarily during the events of the first Soul Calibur.
In a new press release from Bandai Namco, the company says, "Taking place in the 16th century, revisit the events of the original Soulcalibur to uncover hidden truths."
It's unclear if the whole game is set during the events of the first game. However, this does mean that we'll probably be seeing fan favorite characters return to their Soulcalibur one roots designs.
Other details outlined by Bandai Namco include a new move called Reversal Edge which lets players counter their opponents in a clash-for-clash attack. If your counter-attack lands, you can expect a scene straight "from an action movie" thanks to the dynamic camera.
Soulcalibur 6 is slated for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2018.
