SoulCalibur 6 marks a new milestone in the Soul franchise. Despite being labeled the 6th entry in the mainline series, SoulCalibur 6 serves as a sequel and soft reboot. SC6 retells the story starting with the second game in the series, SoulCalibur. While characters are primarily the same, it changes several major plot elements and introduces new characters. For newcomers, it's an excellent way to get into the SoulCalibur universe, while more seasoned fans will find many little references and allusions to previous entries.

Starting with newcomers, SoulCalibur 6 introduces us to Grøh and Azwel. The former is a mysterious member of the Aval Organization, a group of people who strive to rid the world of those corrupted with malfestation. The latter is a savant and a scholar who achieved expertise in countless fields before concluding that humanity is heading to ruin. Proclaiming himself the savior of humanity, Azwel becomes the main antagonist in SC6's Libra of Souls story mode, where he attempts to push humanity forward by unleashing the Ultimate Evil Seed.

Outside of two newcomers, one guest, and unlockable Inferno (who can't be used online), the game featured 17 classic SoulCalibur characters consisting of Mitsurugi, Sophitia, Nightmare, Xianghua, Kilik, Ivy, Zasalamel, Siegfried, Taki, Yoshimitsu, Maxi, Talim, Voldo, Astaroth, Seong Mi-na, Cervantes, and Raphael. With two seasons of DLCs, we also saw the return of Tira, Amy, Cassandra, Hilde, Setsuka, and most notably, Hwang, who was absent in SoulCalibur IV and V.

Continuing the SoulCalibur tradition of having bizarre and unexpected guest characters, SC6 features three guests from three completely different games. Base roster saw the addition of Geralt of Rivia, the famous witcher. While initially a character from the books, his appearance and fighting style in SoulCalibur is based entirely on video games. In Season 1, YoRHa No. 2 Type B, or simply 2B from NieR: Automata, has joined the game's roster. Despite coming from a vastly different setting, she made an incredibly smooth transition into SoulCalibur with a stylish moveset that utilizes her two massive swords and other abilities. From the neighboring fighting game developers at SNK, Haohmaru came to SC6 in Season 2. If you think he looks somewhat similar to Mitsurugi, then you're onto something, as both of these warriors were based on the legendary Japanese swordsman Miyamoto Musashi.

With such a variety of weapons, fighting styles, personalities, and designs, SoulCalibur 6 has a little something for everyone. Not only that, but should you wish to do so, the game allows you to create or download someone else's custom character or customize existing ones with a bevy of cosmetic options.
