Soul Calibur VI Reveals Her Royal Highness, Hilde, Making a Return in a New Trailer

Princess Hilde from the Holy Roman Empire is Soul Calibur VI's latest DLC fighter character to hit the latest entry in the long-running franchise.

Bandai Namco released a brand new Soul Calibur VI reveal trailer for fan favorite, Princess Hildegard von Krone. She will be coming to the game as its latest DLC fighter, as a part of the Season 2 DLC pass. The trailer showcases her absolutely devastating fighting style which utilizes her short sword and spear, Glänzende Nova and Frischer Himmel:

She fights to restore the fictional Wolfkrone Kingdom, located in the Holy Roman Empire (present day Germany) and first made her appearance in Soul Calibur IV. Hilde’s battle style, “Große Erbschaft,” allows her to freely alternate between using her spear or her sword, depending on which button the player presses.

Other returning fighters from the franchise include Yoshimitsu, Voldo, and 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 SoulCalibur VI build so they could do it too. You can check out our guide on how to make Bowsette and Boosette in SoulCalibur 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.”

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