As the release date for Soul Calibur VI gets closer and closer, more information and details about the Bandai Namco fighting game are slowly being revealed.
One of these features includes the fan favorite Create-a-Soul which has finally been confirmed by producer Motohiro Okubo himself.
In a recent interview with Newsweek, the game’s producer confirmed that the character creator mode would be returning in Soul Calibur VI although he didn’t elaborate as to what players should expect for the feature.
“In terms of other modes, there is the alternative story mode that I mentioned before and the character creator that is a key element of Soul Calibur.“That’s going to be in there, we don’t know how it’s going to look yet”.
Create-a-Soul was first introduced in Soul Calibur III and has since become a staple for the franchise ever since. The character creator mode in previous games allowed players to use move sets of every character in the game (minus guest characters) to customize their own original creation using hundreds of armor sets, hair styles and other accessories to make whatever they’d like whether they be cool, funny or just plain weird.
In the same interview, Obuko also detailed future updates coming to Soul Calibur VI.
“Along with the release date, we announced a season pass. “There is going to be some DLC that is in planning, and future updates. We plan to continue these updates as long as these DLCs last. And of course, as developers, there is a desire and want to do more for a game. That’s going to depend on the reception from the fans. We want to work on the game more.”
The season pass is said to contain an additional three playable characters, but whether these fighters are veterans or new guest characters is still yet to be seen. We should learn more about these fighters later this year when Soul Calibur VI releases on October 19th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Until then, keep your eyes on the Mammoth Gamers for further updates.
