SoulCalibur VI’s roster is growing more and more robust. Veterans fighters Seong Mi-na, and Astaroth were announced recently, joining the already busy cast of characters which includes the return of Tekken’s Yoshimitsu.
Today’s announcement from Bandai Namco Entertainment at Gamescom 2018 in Cologne, Germany, saw Tira returning to the battlefield as a DLC character. Tira first made her an appearance way back in SoulCalibur III. Now a firm fan favourite, Tira has appeared in every major SoulCalibur entry since. Brandishing an unusual and unique weapon in the form of a bladed ring called Eiserne Drossel, Tira’s acrobatic fighting style is something of an aggressive ballet. This “Dance of Death” sees her elegantly slipping in and out of the ring while savagely lashing opponents with its edges. The gameplay trailer below shows how nimble she can be in action while simultaneously delivering heavy blows to grounded combatants. The footage also displays her performing a number of swift dodges and parries, along with stunning emenies before launching them into the air for follow-up combos.
SoulCalibur VI will be bringing the iconic weapon-based fighting game series to this generation of consoles for the first time when it’s released on October 19, 2018, for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. Tira can be added to the roster via DLC as a bonus character for season pass owners or as a stand-alone purchase.
