Take a look at the defense.

The PlayStation Experience 2017 show has given us a more detailed look at the upcoming fighter. SoulCalibur VI was announced a couple of days ago during The Game Awards.

Producer Motohiro Okubo speaks at length about SoulCalibur VI’s production focusing on the new Reversal Edge system. This is a new gameplay system that integrates offense and defense allowing to continuously block an opponent and retaliate with your own counter-attack displayed in a film-like fashion.

Here is what the press release says about the title:


Soulcalibur 6 takes place in the 16th century and revisits the events of the original Soulcalibur to uncover hidden truths. The heroic battles transpire in a beautiful and fluid world, with eye-popping graphics and visual appeal. Soulcalibur 6 tunes the battle, movement, and visual systems so players can execute visceral and dynamic attacks with ease.

Key Features
