Today is the last day of EVO 2018, so it shouldn’t surprise that more fighting game news is coming, and there is one fresh out of the oven about Soul Calibur VI.

Bandai Namco entertainment just revealed two returning characters for the upcoming fighting game, and they’re Astaroth and Seong Mi-Na.

It’s certainly interesting to see the golem Astaroth and the graceful Seong Mi-Na introduced in the same trailer, as they honestly couldn’t be more different. Funnily, many character reveals for the game were leaked ahead of time one way or another, but this is not the case this time around.

You can check both out in the trailer below. If you’re interested in the rest of the cast, you can also enjoy the reveal trailer of Voldo, the video introducing Maxi, the video for Yoshimitsuthe announcement for Taki, the return of Siegfried, and the coolest guest character ever, Geralt of Rivia.

SoulCalibur VI will release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 19th, 2018. You can already pre-order the game on Amazon and read our hands-on preview from E3 2018.
