That was a great duo reveal. Start with the super safe Astaroth then swerve with the less certain Mina. Both look great.

Seong Mi-Na continues the trend of SCVI oversexualizing its female cast.

I really like her moveset... but yeah. Character creation is going to be a must for me to get around these shitty outfits.

Mina really got a ton of new stuff and looks great. She finally seems like a cool character in her own right, not just wack Kilik (yes, I know she was first).

Asta tho. ASTA. He's GIGANTIC. The fur and horns on his outfit make me think Rock isn't going to return.

Fantastic reveal, Lord Okubo is da bes.

Praise be.

This game keeps on making it harder and harder with who to try to main first. Mina was so fun to play back in the original game.

Astaroth is not a surprise, since Okubo teased him in a previous tweet. I didn't expect them to reveal two characters, though. Anyway, that's some good news.

I wish for more new character fighting styles, but I guess we have to do the Nostalgia Tour after SCV. If we are doing Nostalgia, gimme some Rapheal and Cervantes (He's been in the story trailer, so he's got a good shot).

I love that Astaroth's look is akin to his Soul Calibur 4 look. He looks like a monster, and that's my ideal Astaroth. I'm loving how different these characters seem to play as well. Mina seems like a whole new character to me.


Soul Calibur 6 is a whole new beast.

I thought the exact opposite haha. SC4 has my favorite Astaroth. He doesn't look monstrous enough here.

So happy Seong Mi-Na is in. She was my main in Soul Edge, I love her so much.

edit: Oof. I was so hyped by her being in that I hadn't paid attention to the weird underboob bikini top. Yeah, this is bad. Give these fighters proper containment please. The rest isn't so egregious, it's the same overall silhouette that she's had since Soul Edge, so I'm not bothered.

Great reveal for both. Mina especially looks great. Am I the only one that found Astaroth's voice acting kind of off?

Well, Mi-Na had a tiny bra in SC2, plenty of under-boob in SC3 and holy-hell-how-is-that-thing-not-flapping-open in SC4, so not too surprising that her SC1 dress had to go. Hoping for good CAS options.

Now that Mina's in, it's pretty safe to say the semi-clones of the series stand a good chance of getting in; Cassandra seems like a shoo-in.

Did they? she looks about in line with her other designs.

SC2

SC3


SC4


This is all offical art too.
Some of the complaints I see in this forum are so weird. Either they have no idea about Soulcalibur or nostalgia makes them think things were pretty different back then.

Heck yeah Mi-na! She's back! She had some familiar stuff, but I'm also pretty sure there was some new stuff in there. Looking for a moveset breakdown.

Now I just need Cass and I'll have all my SC2 mains.

Astaroth looks pretty good, though I swear I remember his voice being a bit grittier. That move where he threw a guy along the ground at light speed was dope.

I believe there are six more to go.


Add in the 4 characters in the season pass, and you've got ten more.
Damn I wasn't even aware of the season pass. I hope they don't start talking too much about it till after the game releases.

I hate when devs go deep on advertising dlc like months before release

Well, the game comes out next month, and we haven't heard a peep yet.


I think one of the season pass is supposed to be a pre-order character, so we'll hear about at least one of them before the game's release.
