SoulCalibur VI Reveals Returning Character Taki With New Screenshots and Official Trailer

Taki returns once again with her blades Rekki-Maru and Mekki-Maru in the upcoming SoulCalibur VI, releasing sometime 2018.

Debuting in Soul Edge years ago, Taki the Ninja will once again be a part of the line-up in the next SoulCalibur game. Releasing at an unknown time in 2018 for the Americas, SoulCalibur VI will be available on PS4, PC, and Xbox One platforms. After yesterday’s accidental leak of the Bandai Namco title, there have been additional gallery photos added to show off Taki’s amazing style.

Taki is well known for her bodysuits that show off her physique, as well as the twin-blades that she carries: Rekki-Maru and Mekki-Maru. The Japanese demon mask iconic to her character is also part of her costume once again, as it was in most of the SoulCalibur titles. Even though she sometimes shows concern or compassion towards other SoulCalibur characters, she is often cold and emotionless, much like any real ninja would be, and this makes her a very dangerous character.

It’s not entirely new information that Taki would be returning to the latest iteration of the fighting franchise. In fact, there was a leaked trailer from yesterday,  but today we’re getting the official high-resolution version.

SoulCalibur VI will release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC in 2018. You can pre-order the game on Amazon.
