Hm.  Either Mitsurugi cleans up incredibly well or we took a jump back in time.  Yet Sophitia's outfit and glimpses at previous cutscenes would suggest we're still going forward.

Regardless, glad to see it's still alive.

i would think this is a jump back in time since mitsurugi looks considerably younger and sophitia looks alive

Could be pulling an MK9 and soft rebooting things after V's trashfire of a story.

I'd kinda want this game to be series reboot, but MK dropped the sequential numbering for that (even if they ultimately restored it with X) while this is clearly SC "six".

Sophitia's design looks like her SCII outfit, so maybe it's a SCII-SCIII interquel?

Got hyped when the announcer spoke and leads to the gameplay.  Also hoping it's a reboot that resets SCV's story.

Fuck this if it's a reboot to SC. Mitsurugi looked the best in SCV and they're just gonna turn him back to his bland young SC self. Talim is too young during this time period and Bangoo will never be playable.

I wouldn't mind it getting the Mortal Kombat 9 treatment.  SCV didn't exactly end in a doomsday situation as I recall, been a while since it came out and I played the story mode, but yeah, we can rewind a bit from the incest love story.  Though I gotta agree, Mitsurugi looked the best when he was older in V.

Might as well talk about it now that it's confirmed, but guest characters.  I've discussed with a friend about possible guest stars before a few times.  The Witcher guy seems viable, though I have zero interest in him showing up.  I think the two we agreed that would work, have some level of appeal without turning away old fans and be weird enough for their outlandish choices would be Naruto or a Digimon rep, both due to their good relations to Namco Bandai and general worldwide popularity.  More the later for Naruto, the former for Digimon, though it apparently has been doing well with Digimon Story.

Not that I particularly see either being used, Naruto would either need to be like Angol Fear or be weirdly realistic, and honestly WarGreymon could work but would be weirder than freaking Darth Vader and friends.  Yet Tekken had Gon, so hey.

Myself, if this was done a few years prior, could see and wouldn't mind Lightning of Final Fantasy fame.  But since then we've got a pair of new entries and Noctis, who's bizarrely over in Tekken now.

About time... V was, to be fair, a bit of a disappointment. The story left out most of the cast and felt rushed to me. The game play wasn't bad, but the character changes made things feel foreign. At least Asteroth kicks ass and if he's not in here, I'm going to riot.

Now since guests are a possible plan... My idea is this: Since you already have SNK and Namco team up for Geese in Tekken 7, why not bring in a fighter from Samurai Shodown for Soul Calibur VI? I'd gladly pay $100 if I can get Kyoshiro or Wan-Fu in this game... maybe an extra $25 for Neinhalt Seiger as well.

I am erect.

Undo the trash fire that was SC5's story and most of its characters, put SC2 or SC3's level of effort into the game, and I will be a very happy boy.

Give me Hwang back pls k thx

Put me solidly in the camp hoping for a reboot or an interquel

V went off the rails too far

Of course I suppose that could be Mitsurugi's son Mitsurugi and Cassandra's daughter Sophitia
Back from the bellows of hell
Back from the back of a jail in a cell
Back from the common decrees to the common degree
Back to the streets from the East
Back to the belly of beast
Back to the place of my peace
Back to me holding my piece
Anything working disturbing that peace
Will certainly meet the deceased, capiche?

It's honestly hard to say if this will be a reboot because from what I heard apparently, there was some other Soul Calibur game that was released around the same time as Lost Swords(ugh...) which actually explained that Sophitia wasn't dead after all and she was somewhere else.

But hey looking at Mitsurugi, this could easily be a reboot-sequel like Mortal Kombat IX so who knows.

So hey, overlooked it before, but just noticing that they're skipping out on a Switch version.  Well, there go the dreams of Link returning.

Wonder why they opted out of a Switch version.  They got other games planned for it, prime opportunity to cash in on everyone being in love with Breath of the Wild as well.  Though I do suppose Link would be designed different than his Ocarina of Time version SCII used; bombs work different now, no mainstay boomerang or bow, even the Master Sword is downplayed, though I couldn't imagine they'd remove his signature weapon.

the switch is comparatively severely underpowered and they probably think it's not worth the effort

Isn't Fighterz going on it?  How drastically different are we expecting this game to be over Fighterz? Evidently, I screwed up Switch with Steam.  I thought Fighterz was going to the Switch this whole time.  Whoops.

I'd like to argue that graphics also don't really matter, I'm enjoying Doom 4 being portable considerably more than sitting at a desk on a computer or laying on the couch for the Xbox, but I already know that isn't going to fly when trying to sell a product.  Still, what a damn shame.

Anyways, the official pages for Soul Calibur have been updating their profiles to match the announcement of the new game, and this is their current cover art.


So I'm gonna go lean now to yes, it's a reboot, considering they're showcasing the old Soul Calibur/Edge.


We also got new Mitsurugi artwork.

maybe they are doing with Sophitia and Mitsurugi the same thing with Kazumi in Tekken 7 , in which she was a flashback character, I don't mind it for as long they give back Taki (While being aged) and Aean along with Ivy
