The game began development over three years ago. Like Tekken 7, Soulcalibur VI uses Unreal Engine 4.
Heishiro Mitsurugi (御剣 平四郎, Mitsurugi Heishirō) is a veteran of the Soul series who has been in every game since Soul Edge. He appears much younger than he did in Soulcalibur V, wearing a modified version of his Soulcalibur outfit.
Sophitia Alexandra (ソフィーティア・アレクサンドル, Sofītia Arekusandoru) is the mother of Pyrrha and Patroklos, and older sister to Cassandra. She is a veteran of the Soul series and is returning since her last main appearance in Soulcalibur IV. Her outfit is derived from her Soulcalibur look.
Unknown Character is a brand new character who was shown wielding a dual-bladed weapon.
- Soulcalibur VI introduces a brand new feature called Reversal Edge, which can be performed using a single button. This allows the player to defend against an opponent's attack and directly counter with a powerful strike.
- Armour break makes a return from Soulcalibur IV and Soulcalibur V. It appears to break different sections of armour as it did in Soulcalibur IV and also seems to affect hairstyles too.
- Another new game mechanic is called the Lethal Hit, an advanced system where landing certain moves in the right condition will send the opponent flying.
- Guard Impacts make their return into the game, it is however now free of any gauge cost.
- Critical Edge returns from Soulcalibur V largely unchanged.
- Character Creation, considered a very appealing feature, is set to return.
- Shrine of Eurydice: Cloud Sanctuary
- Snow-Capped Showdown
- The game will feature old characters from previous games, as well as some newcomers.
- It has been stated that Soulcalibur VI will return the series to its roots.
- Like past games, Soulcalibur VI will feature at least one Guest character.
- It will be the first game in the series to be released on PC.
- According to the Character Select screen, there will be a total of 20 playable characters. Unless you take away two slots for Custom Characters and Random then there will be 18.
- Although, this is an early build of the game and could change before release.
