After the Street Fighter V top 8 at EVO 2019, Project Soul’s Motohiro Okubo, producer of Soulcalibur VI, came onto the stage to reveal some new trailers for the game, teasing what’s to come. The first trailer showed off returning character Cassandra, the final character to be part of the game’s first Season Pass.
The trailer can be seen here:
Being Sophitia’s sister, Cassandra uses similar weapons, but her different personality is reflected in her fighting style, with a more playful touch to her moves. Cassandra had also been leaked through the PSN Store listing for the Season Pass, which briefly had its description updated to include her. She will be available to pass holders on August 5, along with her weapons and clothes for the character creator.
Okubo then surprised viewers with a second trailer, announcing a second season for the game, along with gameplay changes and four new characters, including one guest. As someone who doesn’t actively play Soulcalibur VI I wasn’t able to tell much about gameplay or balance changes from the trailer, but the most immediately obvious thing was the ability to go into a regular attack string out of Reversal Edge, which normally leads into the rock-paper-scissors mechanic that players are familiar with, as well as seemingly being able to cancel into Soul Charge both out of attacks and while blocking. The trailer also goes on to reveal the second season’s guest character, Samurai Shodown protagonist Haohmaru.
The trailer was shared by Bandai Namco:
While Cassandra’s release date is known, it has not been revealed when the second season of Soulcalibur VI will be live.
