Publisher and developer Bandai Namco have been really busy during EVO 2019, and SoulCalibur VI is at the top of the list. Producer Motohiro Okubo was on stage to first unveil Cassandra, who will be joining the roster as a DLC character.
The beloved Athenian warrior will be available August 5, and will bring her brand of familiar sword and shield combat to SoulCalibur VI. In addition, Season 2 was also announced, which will include a brand new gameplay system. Details are hazy still, but it appears to be some kind of new counter mechanic.
A new season will also mean a new season pass, with four new characters in the pipeline. One of those is Haohmaru of Samurai Shodown, which was recently released as well.
Exciting times ahead for fighting game fans, especially if SoulCalibur VI is your go-to choice for weapon-based combat.
