Swords clash in real life in a SoulCalibur VI video featuring world-class fencer Miles Chamley-Watson

Bandai Namco has taken the fight to the real world in a new video for the upcoming fighting game SoulCalibur VI, which will be released on October 19 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The video shows how game producer Motohiro Okubo and Team USA fencer Miles Chamley-Watson settle the score with a physical and digital duel.

SOULCALIBUR VI is no different in this pursuit as it seeks to once again ascend the ranks and take its position as the premier weapons-based fighting game in the world.

To find out, SOULCALIBUR VI Producer, Motohiro Okubo, sets out to meet world renowned fencer and Team USA Olympic Bronze Medalist, Miles Chamley-Watson, to explore the physical and digital sword fighting worlds together.
