As we slowly crawl closer towards the unknown release date of Soulcalibur 6, we're greeted with more and more familiar faces.
Fan favourite and Soulcalibur series staple Siegfried is back in Soulcalibur 6 - and he comes packing his enormous sword as per usual, of course.
Earlier today, the studio announced that Siegfried Schtauffen, a character whose story began in the original Soul Edge, will be making his way to the game and joining the official roster.
As always, it looks like Siegfried will be a slower character who gets by on his strength, versatility, and the range of his ridiculously massive sword. The memory of having killed his own father is haunting him.More news: Salzburg and Marseille overturn deficits to reach semi-finals
SoulCalibur VI acts as a sort of reboot for the franchise, revisiting the events of the first game in the series. In Soulcalibur VI, Siegfried awakens to find himself freed from the influence of Soul Edge, the demonic sword that corrupts the minds of men and seeks to feed its neverending bloodlust.
SoulCalibur VI is set to release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC sometime in 2018. Hopefully Soulcalibur 6 turns out to be well worth the wait.
