Summary of Upcoming Balances Changes in Soul Calibur 6 Ver 1.11 from Dengeki Broadcast

Soul Calibur 6 is expected to get more balance changes in the upcoming Version 1.11 patch so the dev team recently took the time to break down some of the things to expect in a live stream with Dengeki Online. You see the game's producer, director and battle system director go through every character and detail some of the things to either, fix or correct, in relation to the character designs. The team also describes their development philosophies for SC6 which is interesting to know if you're curious as to what their reasoning for some of the changes is. There's also a brief comment of the next DLC pack in the Season Pass which happens to be a Customization Pack featuring over 100 pieces and some new BGM to use in Soul Calibur 6. The stream is archived on YouTube but it's in Japanese so you have Arika_ex over on Reddit to thank for taking the time to translate and summarize all the main bits covered in the stream.

Soul Calibur 6 - 2B Battle Director Comment

2B from "NieR:Automata" is the newest character coming to Soul Calibur 6 and we have some details from the Soul Calibur 6 Battle Director (@oosaka_twt) that describes how she's going to fight. Her combat design sounds a bit like Noctis's from Tekken 7 in which they're both recommended as easy beginner characters with simple commands in their movelists. 2B's unique characteristic in SC6 though is she has her Pod 042 assistant that helps her out during battles. You can read more of what she has in store in English down below (Thanks Game Watch for the source.)

Soul Calibur 6 - Azwel Battle Director Comment

Japanese gaming sites have published their Azwel news posts earlier today and the battle director (@oosaka_twt) comments detailing gameplay information are now out. The notes for Azwel describes his gameplan of repeatedly using one of his three available weapon types he can summon to use powerful variants of his attacks. Kind of sounds like building stacks with a weapon type to use a Rage Drive version if you get what I mean. The battle director comment also describes a bit about the Soul Charge and unique Critical Edge that Azwel has access to so be sure to check that out if you're looking to play him in the future. Thanks goes to Famitsu for providing the info. SoulCalibur VI is out October 19th for PS4, XB1 & PC via Steam.
