Okubo also noted that a Switch version of Soul Calibur game could run at 60fps, if the “resolution” is lowered. Moreover, the interview also dabbled in collaborations with other anime characters.
Soulcalibur 6 is finally happening. After years of teasing, publisher GameSprite announced the long-awaited sequel in its weapons-based fighting game series today.
Given the leaker’s track record being a bit checkered, it should warrant a grain of salt when it comes to his predictions, but since he did predict GameSprite was cooking up this Soul Calibur game before it was announced, it does add some credibility to his track record.
Soulcalibur 6 is heading to PC later this year. So far, GameSprite has confirmed eight characters for the game’s roster: returning fighters Ivy, Zasalamel, Sophitia, Mitsurugi, Nightmare, Xianghua and Kilik, as well as Soulcalibur newcomer Grøh.
All other online modes will be staying online for PC. The mode also seems to be staying online for PlayStation 3, so if you have that version of the game, you will be able to continue playing unhindered.
Keen fans who follow Soul Calibur news might already know the information that went down between Kayane and producer Motohiro Okubo. The interview touches on the game’s story, Siegfried rumors, characters that could be potential guests, a Switch version and more.
I know that this is an announcement of an announcement, but if you are eager to know when SoulCalibur 6 official release date will be announced just know, according to Motohiro Okubo, that it might be coming soon.
Today’s other reveal is Zasalamel, who first appeared in Soulcalibur 3 and quickly became one of the series’ most popular characters. Zasalamel returns, scythe in hand, in his quest for the holy blade Soulcalibur (and ultimately to become the twisted demon known as Abyss). You can see him in action in the character reveal trailer below.
Ivy has been a mainstay in the SC series since the beginning, and has been noted to be one of the more difficult characters to master. It should come as no surprise that the character’s very revealing and dominatrix-style costumes have caught the attention of more than just hormone-filled, adolescent gamers.
