After the leak and following official reveal of Cervantes de León as a playable character in SoulCalibur VI, Bandai Namco Entertainment reached out with a press release including the first screenshots.

We learn that Cervantes has been brought back from death by Soul Edge, and now his crave for souls is stronger than ever. His ultimate goal is to manage to wield Soul Edge itself once more.

You can check out the gallery below, including a glimpse at the story mode. If you want to see more, you can check out the reveal of Tira and that of new character Azwel. Another recent trailer introduced the Libra of Soul story mode, that lets you create your own fighter.

You can also read some recent comments from Producer Motohiro Okubo on the past and current situation of the SoulCalibur franchise, and on why the upcoming game took so long to make. We also heard that one of the upcoming DLC characters could be a guest from another franchise.

SoulCalibur VI will launch for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 19th, 2018. You can already pre-order the game on Amazon.
