Wondering what was going on in the reveal trailer for Soul Calibur 6? Word from Bandai Namco have come down to describe the new battle system in place for this time around. SC6 features a mechanic called the 'Reversal Edge' and it is described as a way for combatants to clash against each other and be able to perform powerful counterattacks based on the opponent's action. Soul Calibur 6 is said to take place during the 16th century and will revisit the events of the original SOULCALIBUR. Both new and old fighters will be featured in the roster with our first two confirmed characters being Mitsurugi & Sophitia. Soul Calibur 6 is slated to release for PS4/XB1 & PC in 2018.
