SoulCalibur VI’s New Character Azwel Looks Pretty Crazy in a Ton of New Screenshots and First Details

Bandai Namco provides more information and a metric ton of images of SoulCalibur VI's crazy new character (villain?) Azwel.

Following the weekend reveal of SoulCalibur VI‘s new character Azwel, Bandai Namco followed up with a press release revealing quite a lot of new screenshots about the alleged “leader of humanity.”

Azwel is a man of extraordinary intelligence and a scholar in many fields, including history, medicine, war, and art. His studies about the history of humanity brought him to the conclusion that humanity would self-destruct through wars and other calamities. His fanatical love for the people led him to enact a terrifying plan to save them from themselves.

His weapon is named Palindrome, and it’s a pair of gloves. The right glove includes a fragment of Soul Edge, while the left one has a piece of SoulCalibur. Azwel draws his power from the memories of past battles, preserved within those fragments. While he appears unarmed, his gloves allow him to summon a variety of deadly weapons, which he can use with brutal effects.

You can check out the screenshots below. If you want to see more of SoulCalibur VI, you can check out the reveal of Tira, and the Libra of Soul story mode, that lets you create your own fighter.
