Surprising absolutely no one both Ivy and Zasalamel have been confirmed for Soulcalibur VI. Shown off in their respective trailers, excited fans can check out the franchise veterans in action sporting their signature weapons and costumes.
Sexy and scantily clad as ever, Ivy brandishes her Ivy Sword in what can only be described as classic attire. With the ability to transform her sword into a chain-link whip, Ivy is a fighter that is able to capitalize at all ranges through technical performance. Zasalamel and his magic scythe Kafziel, on the other hand, appear extremely comfortable in neutral — his trailer demonstrating sweeping arc slashes and powerful combo potential.
Announced during last year’s Video Game Awards to a roaring crowd, Soulcalibur VI is currently slated for a release sometimes this year in 2018 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and through Steam. Known for its colourful cast of fighters and frustratingly awesome “RING OUT” mechanics, the storied series will finally be re-entering the FGC — over half a decade since the release of Soulcalibur V.
