'SoulCalibur VI' (ALL) Brings Back Cervantes As Playable Character - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on Sept. 13, 2018 @ 1:45 a.m. PDT

Following the 20th anniversary of the SoulCalibur franchise, the weapon based fighting game returns to its roots whilst bringing brand new gameplay features.

SoulCalibur VI has never looked more dynamic or intense with eye popping graphics powered by Unreal Engine 4. Travel through signature 16th century stages and experience the struggle for the two legendary swords using a roster of returning characters along with newcomers!

Gameplay has been revamped with the all new Reversal Edge feature allowing players to take balance between attack and defence. Once activated, players can defend against the opponents attack and directly counter with a powerful strike highlighted through a dynamic camera.


One of the most iconic characters of the franchise, the ghostly pirate Cervantes, is returning to fight in SoulCalibur VI, playable when the game launches.

When Cervantes first gripped Soul Edge, the power of the cursed sword transformed him into a monster. He used the sword to bring a reign of terror and carnage to the world, as the sword continued to manipulated his mind. But soon the cursed sword’s plans were thwarted by a heroic ninja and a brave warrior. Cervantes was defeated, consumed by fire and sentenced to the depths of hell, his body turned to ash.

Later the now new owner of the Soul Edge, Nightmare comes across Cervantes’s remains, but left without noticing the small glimmer of light emitting from his body. The Soul Edge had once again set the terrible wheels of fate moving and brought Cervantes back from the dead. After his resurrection, Cervantes now walks grinning through a sea of corpses, claiming countless souls and leaving desolation and destruction in his wake. His final aim is clear: to once again to make Soul Edge his own.

Cervantes fights with two weapons, Acheron and Nirvana. His main sword, Acheron, has been his sword since he plundered it from its hapless former owner during his reign of dread across the Atlantic Ocean. His secondary weapon, Nirvana, is a dagger with a pistol in the hilt. While pistols of the time were still relatively primitive, shooting an opponent could break their guard, allowing for a fierce follow-up blow. The gun dagger was a gift from the Italian weapons dealer Vercci and symbolises the twisted connection between the feared pirate and the Merchant of Death.

Key Features:

  • The legendary weapon-based 3D fighting game returns to its roots
  • State of the art graphics powered by Unreal Engine 4
  • A complete roster of returning characters and newcomers
  • An epic story mode of the struggle for the two swords
  • Revamped gameplay mechanics for intense showdowns
  • Dynamic fights enhanced by cinematic-styled combat

SoulCalibur VI is in development for PS4, Xbox One and PC, scheduled for release on October 19, 2018.
