Bandai Namco has announced another new character for Soulcalibur 6 today. This time, it is the undead Cervantes that is returning to the series again.
To celebrate this announcement, Bandai Namco has shared a brand new trailer for the character showcasing his powers and skills. You can view it in action below.
Here is the official story synopsis for Cervantes as shared in the press release by Bandai Namco.
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 carnage around him as it manipulated his mind. But soon the cursed sword’s plans were thwarted by a ninja and a warrior. Cervantes was defeated, consumed by the fires of hell, and his body turned to ash. One day the new owner of the sword, Nightmare, came to investigate Cervantes’s remains, but left without noticing the small glimmer of light emitting from his body. Soul Edge once again set the terrible wheels of fate moving and brought back Cervantes from the dead.
After the confirmation of Cervantes, there are now a total of 19 characters for Soulcalibur 6 that have received an official recognition from Bandai Namco. Some of the other characters are rumored but we will have to wait and find out if they are indeed in the final game.
Soulcalibur 6 will launch on October 19th for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
