Announced last weekend, Bandai Namco has released news that NieR: Automata’s protagonist 2B will join the fight for souls in SoulCalibur VI for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. While she is available as a standalone purchase later, she is also included within the season pass of the game, which includes now available DLC fighter Tira.
2B wields two swords, Virtuous Contract and Virtuous Treaty. Both have been carefully tuned for maximum efficiency in the hands of a YoRHa android. Her fighting technique is specially designed for combat against machine lifeforms, employing acrobatic leaps and mid-air slashes, lightning-fast evasions and perfectly coordinated strikes.
2B will be a playable fighter in Versus mode, Arcade mode, and Online matches. 2B will also come with her own stage and background music.
