It is time to add two more fighters to the list for SoulCalibur VI as we just had Astaroth and Seong Mi-Na announced and shown off to us all. Both have been part of the game's universe for quite some time and it is not too surprising that Bandai Namco is lumping them into the game as well. It does take up two more slots in the SoulCalibur VI roster that could be filled with new characters to the franchise, but as October 19th is coming up quickly, I have a feeling we are only going to be seeing the tried and true characters popping up. We could get a few things shaken up along the way, I hope we do, I just think that they would have hinted at it by now.
Either way, we have a look at these two characters in SoulCalibur VI fresh form EVO and showing off their new looks and moves for the game. Both look and feel just as we can remember them from the past just with a newer look due to the new gaming engine it is all working with. You can see them both swinging their weapons and limbs in the following trailer as well as a nice little description of who they are and why they are out and about in SoulCalibur VI down below. Have a look and hopefully you will enjoy.
SoulCalibur VI — Astaroth & Seong Mi-Na
Astaroth is a golem created by the leader of an evil cult. Imbued with an amazing strength as well as the martial art experience of highly skilled warriors, he is the perfect weapon to serve the cult doctrine of destruction and rebirth. All too aware of his mission, the creature is tirelessly seeking for the cursed sword.
He was granted power during his creation by Ares, the Greek god of war, and the god remains the golem's one true master. Astaroth's fighting style is based on the White Giant that Ares once observed, but the golem doesn't seem to care that his style is a mere copy. All that matters to him is how many people his techniques enable him to kill, and how cruelly he can do it…
Seong Mi-Na is a woman, but first of all, she remains a warrior. When her father decided to search for a marriage suitor for her, she decided to run away. In her flight, she took the most precious treasure of the Seong family, the Scarlet Thunder a weapon passed down through countless generations.
As one would expect of the only daughter of the Seong family master, Seong Mi-Na trained fiercely in the art of the longsword and acquired great strength and agility. Despite the weight of her weapon, she wields it with disconcerting ease and grace.
