Soul Calibur VI Reveals Classic Soul Edge Fighter Hwang in New Trailer

Hwang first made his debut in Soul Edge. Now the warrior of light and wielder of the Chinese sword makes his return in Soul Calibur VI.

November 28, 2020

Hwang, who made his debut in Soul Edge and (including that first appearance) has only been playable in three main Soul games, finally makes his triumphant return in Soul Calibur VI. He’s also the fighter who served as the basis for Yun-Seong, another wielder of the Chinese sword.

However, as shown in the trailer above, their fighting styles are completely different. Hwang is faster, tighter, and more polished compared to Yun-Seong’s largely self taught style.

Launching on the same is DLC pack 14, which will feature brand new content for the character creation mode. And beside that release will be free content update 2.20 featuring a brand new stage, battle adjustments for all characters, Seong Mi-Na’s classic costume parts, even more Tekken themed outfits, new Mitsurugi and Nightmare episodes, and more.


In other Soul Calibur VI news, both Setsuka and Princess Hildegard von Krone was revealed to be coming to the game as its latest DLC fighter, as a part of the Season 2 DLC pass. Other returning fighters from the franchise include YoshimitsuVoldo, Seong Mi-Na, and Astaroth (who were revealed during EVO 2018).

2B from Nier: Automata also made an appearance in the weapons-based fighting game. 2B is an android and the protagonist of NieR: Automata. She wields two swords as her primary weapons, although she also wields spears and combat bracers. Her pod support system helps her in battles by allowing her to glide, and attack enemies from a distance.

On the official Japanese website, Bandai Namco warned players about NSFW creations, specifically that if you make an inappropriate character in the Create a Soul mode, you may get banned from online play.

Dualshockers very own customizable characters Bowsette and Boosette were a very big hit, with players crying out asking where they can find a guide for the two characters for a Soul Calibur VI build so they could do it too. You can check out our guide on how to make Bowsette and Boosette in Soul Calibur VI’s character creator here. You can also check out our review of the game here, which declares that it’s “undoubtedly one of the finest fighting games of this generation.”

Soul Calibur VI is available right now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One and you can pick up your copy by heading over to Amazon.
