The Witcher 3‘s Geralt is coming to SoulCalibur 6 as this edition’s guest character. Bandai Namco has emphasized him as a precision fighter who strikes in powerful, calculated bursts and uses his abilities to their fullest. Now we can see that precision in action in a one-on-one fight from E3 2018.
Check out the video above for a brutal brawl between Geralt and long-time SoulCalibur character Yoshimitsu. It provides a clear idea of how Geralt wields his dual weapons as well as his variety of Witcher abilities. His move-set is particularly graceful against the more chaotic Yoshimitsu, but it wasn’t quite enough to overcome his foe this time. Keep an eye out for a particularly messy end.
Geralt is the latest in a long line of guest characters to the SoulCalibur series. He joins other notable ones like Yoda, Darth Vader, Link, and more. CD Projekt Red worked closely with Bandai to assure he looks and feels like the real Geralt, and it shows.
SoulCalibur 6 will get a special “Collector’s Edition” with a Sophitia figure, 120-page art book, metal case, soundtrack CD, and collector’s edition box. It’s set to release alongside the standard version on October 19.
