It is always fun when we get new gameplay for titles like Soulcalibur VI and that is what we have here today. More gameplay and a nice look at one of the characters for the game, Sophitia. One of the staple characters that Bandai Namco needs to have in the game by most gamer's wants and now we have a good look at just her. Well, maybe not a good look, but a better look than we have had since Soulcalibur VI was first shown off and the first gameplay was thrown out there. I am not going to complain, but I am going to be open about what we have just down the page here. It is more a taste of things to come as we head into 2018 and thus towards the official release of the game.
Anyways, here we go with Soulcalibur VI's Sophitia fighting Mitsurugi in engine. That and a small "breakdown" of her moves and abilities in the game that go along with the footage we originally saw during this year's PSX. There is not much in the way of solid details for her, but it is interesting to note that she is younger in Soulcalibur VI than before and that she is one of the core characters being used to develop the rest of the roster. It is interesting to hear that as many of the characters in the history of the franchise should work differently when all is said and done, but it is what it is I guess. Have a look and see just what they have to say about it and then get ready to wait a bit longer for more of the game.
Soulcalibur VI — Sophitia Character Breakdown
We welcome you back to the Stage of History as Motohiro Okubo breaks down Sophitia's character development in Soulcalibur VI. Get ready for the triumphant return of 3D weapons-based fighting when Soulcalibur VI arrives on PS4, XB1, and Steam in 2018.
As I mentioned, the above gameplay does not seem to be completely new as it looks like a lot was used from the PSX gameplay. Have a look and see what you may have missed for Soulcalibur VI before and then get ready to see another one of these breakdown videos for Mitsurugi in the future. At least that is how it feels like Bandai Namco will handle it until they dive into the rest of the roster and other aspects of the game. At least that is the safe assumption to have here.
Soulcalibur VI — PSX Gameplay
Perhaps it was fate… a tale of souls and swords. Watch the brand new PSX gameplay trailer for Soulcalibur VI featuring Mitsurugi and Sophitia locked in a heroic battle!
Are you glad to see that Sophitia is making her way back into Soulcalibur VI here or is this a character you knew would always be back? Are you surprised to find out that she is being used as one of the "template" characters for the game or do you think it makes sense to build from to make the game fun? What are other characters you hoping will make it back in or are you looking for a new cast of characters to join in? Let us have all of those thoughts down in the comments and then discuss.
