▌SoulCalibur VI - Astaroth

Astaroth is a ruthless and powerful fighter in Soul Calibur, he is equipped with a giant axe that has wide range and brutal command throws.

For Soul Calibur 6, the top half of his body has been built up so he has bigger range on his attacks and command throws so opponents can no longer quickly get away from him.

In addition, to make use of his 'massive' characteristics, Astaroth gains plenty of new 'Revenge' type attacks that will now 'armor' through opponents attacks.

Cover the slow speed of his attacks with big power! Astaroth is the character to play for incredible strength and big muscles.


▌SoulCalibur VI - Seong Mi-Na

Seong Mi-Na is a 'power' oriented character who specialises in wielding a longsword that handles with really long range.

Among all the characters in Soul Calibur 6, she excels with having high launching and combo starting attacks from far away. Many new additions to her movelists now include low risk but really wide range attacks that will catch opponents trying to move to the side to get around her. (side stepping / side walking)

She also maintains her previous characteristics in the older SC games of having different properties on her attacks when she strikes the opponent with the tip of her weapon and having moves that can easily break the opponent's guard this time around. Triumph over the opponents with her longsword as she personifies the strategy of fighting the opponent at a distance with power.
