SoulCalibur VI seems to be bubbling away nicely through development. To build interest in the return of the franchise, Bandai Namco is gradually releasing details about the character roster. This week we learnt two more names that will be taking part in this latest entry in the franchise and they will be familiar to fans of the series, Ivy and Zasalamel.
Here are the official character descriptions as well as reveal trailers for each character –
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. Bear witness to Ivy’s deadly skills!
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… Watch as Zasalamel destroys all who dare challenge him in SOULCALIBUR VI!
