If you want to see more of the upcoming fighting game SoulCalibur VI, you have come to the right place.

YouTube user Game Clips And Tips published about ten minutes of direct-feed gameplay from the current demo starring Sophitia and Mitsurugi, but there are a few interesting elements on top of the two beating each other.

First of all, we get to see the character and stage selection menu, which features twenty slots for characters and twelve for stages. Of course, being an early demo, the UI might not be final, and the number of character and stages may very well end up being higher, but this is what we get today.


On top of that, we also get a look at the two different colors available for both Sophitia and Mitsurugi, and at the armor break feature that happens when receiving high damage from the opponent (the official press release calls this “Lethal Hit”). Interestingly, Sophitia’s costume appears to break in two different ways. The first time her hair comes undone and she loses her pauldrons. The second time the strings of her bodice are cut.

You can check out the gameplay below. If you want to see more, you can also enjoy a few screenshots from earlier todaywatch the first trailer, a second clip, and some gameplay straight from PlayStation Experience.

The game will release in 2018 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
