Ivy returns for SoulCalibur VI Bandai Namco

Bandai Namco revealed two more characters for the latest installment of the SoulCalibur franchise, which fans of the series will recognize. Ivy and Zasalamel will return when SoulCalibur VI releases later this year.

The release of two new gameplay trailers gives SoulCalibur fans a chance to see what Ivy and her signature snake sword brings to the game. Zasalamel’s special scythe and time-stopping abilities are also on full display.

Check out the first gameplay of Ivy in SoulCalibur VI .

Here’s the official description of Ivy and her motivations in SoulCalibur VI: Born to an aristocratic English family, her early years were spent in a loving environment, that is until her father’s obsession with alchemy and immortality gained by obtaining the Souls Blade drove him to an early grave. Shortly thereafter, Ivy’s mother passed away and so began her journey to destroy that which brought such despair to her family - Soul Blade.

Here’s the official description of Zasalamel and his motivations for SoulCalibur VI: Zasalamel, born into a clan called the Guardians of the Spirit Sword, has always been an excellent warrior. While his fighting skills were second-to-none, his arrogance drove him to a clan rule which ended with both his arms being broken and him being banished from his clan. Ever defiant, Zasalamel began studying ancient arts in the hope of discovering the secrets to reincarnation, but with everlasting life, a heavy price must be paid.

Zasalamel and Ivy bring the know roster for SoulCalibur VI to eight at this point, including Sophitia, Mitsugiri, Nightmare, Kilik, Xianghua and a new character named Groh. The story of SoulCalibur VI will retell the events of the first game and include special finishing moves and a “reversal edge” mechanic that can block all attacks.

SoulCalibur VI will release for PS4, Xbox One and PC in 2018.
