Hey, remember when SoulCalibur V cut out a lot of fan-favorite characters? Bandai Namco is aiming to change that, as the developer has announced that SoulCalibur VI will include returning fighters Ivy and Zasalamel to the game. The fighter will be released later this year on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Ivy is one of the most famous mainstays in the SOULCALIBUR series and she returns to destroy all who challenge her 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.
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…
While Ivy was in the previous title, Zasalamel was not, so it’ll be great to have him back on board. Check out the gallery above, and stay tuned for more news here on Gaming Trend.
