With Cassandra back, hopefully more of the other veteran cast that were absent in 5 are too...

I never played five due to from what I heard no story mode. Always a fan of Nightmare so if they do bring back story mode I'll all in. In terms of fighting games it's MK and then well below in second place is Soul Calibur.

Rumor has it that Geralt from the Witcher games is going to be a guest character in this. Pretty cool.

Maybe. There's a different rumor that he's going to be in Smash. Snake was in Brawl so it wouldn't be too far fetch though unlike him, Geralt never appeared on a Nintendo console. Then again, neither did Cloud. It can really go either way.

There are more rumors brewing of different guests for Soul Calibur 6 ranging from One Piece's Roronoa Zoro to The Hunter from Bloodborne.

Ridley_Prime
Let me hope that 2B from Nier Automata is the PS4 character of choice dammit.

He made it into Soul Calibur after all. Sweet.

Lack of Geralt hype in here. Guys, I'm disappoint.

Now you know how i feel with some of my threads in the game discussion.

Shut up retard homos

Kazenji
Calm the **** down.

laughing out loud

Geralt I'm okay with, though it was expected. Not too much to say atm beyond what's already been said on hyping the game. Was already sold on this on account of not being a franchise-killing shitstain entry like 5.

Geralt is a great choice for this, he'll transfer well into a fighting game. I wonder who the other cameo will be, theres always at least two iirc.

Jmanghan
I want Dante, finally.

Ridley_Prime
As somewhat mentioned, I'd like 2B or something more recent, but whatever else we end up getting is just bonus icing on top of the cake. This game is a return to form with the original SC cast as opposed to having the less likable replacements that 5 had, and at this point that's all I could ask for with an SC6.

Nemesis X
SC5 only had one guest though which was Ezio. Devil Jin from Tekken was probably going to be the second guest but time constraints by Namco forced the devs I guess to abandon that and give his moveset to the custom characters to use instead. Those time constraints were responsible for the mangled story and the lack of arcade endings so it wouldn't surprise me if that was the case with Jin. Hopefully with DBFZ and Tekken 7 out taking the world by storm, Namco will be in the right mood to give Project Soul all the time they need with 6.

I don't give a **** about the guest characters in this game. I don't give a shit about their latest OC donut steele characters either. No Cassandra no buy. No Raphael no buy.

2B would be perfect.

Nemesis X
Either 2B or Raven Branwen from RWBY. Hey if characters from movies and comic books can appear in SC, I don't see why one from an anime web series can't.

Nemesis X
As for any returning characters I want, Shura would be a pleasant surprise. She was made as filler copying Cervantes' moveset in SC4 but a psycho warrior searching for the strongest with a giant talking demon skull for a companion strapped to her shoulder sounds like main addition material for this series so I'd welcome it long as they give her a unique moveset this time.

As mentioned before, Star Wars only happened because The Force Unleashed was a hot game IP at the time, otherwise I doubt SW would've been considered. Then again, there was Spawn.

If SC4 only had Starkiller/The Apprentice, that would've been some weak shit like only having Ezio in 5, so I'm glad there was Yoda and Vader as compensation, since I didn't really care for Starkiller as a character. The gary stu/Jake Muller buzzcut of the series.

thumb up She was easily the most interesting filler character. Not getting my hopes up though...

Bro SMASH
Maybe they should add a Final Fantasy character like Cloud as a guest.

Nemesis X
Why? He's already in SSB. Besides, should a FFVII guest ever happen in anything again, I'd rather have anyone from his party or Sephiroth.

SC5 was pretty good, the character creation was improved. Storyline sucked, arcade mode sucked, online was pretty good, DLC character sucked, character roster was pretty awful that time around, but if you're like me and only care about CaS' characters, and a few characters like Voldo that weren't removed, it was good.

Fighting System was improved, and I actually got pretty decent with my CaS characters.

Edit: WHOA WAS THAT ZASALAMEL? DUDE IM ALL ****IN IN.

Ridley_Prime

Nemesis X
You wanna bet SC6 is gonna go the way of Mortal Kombat 9 and alter the timeline changing the canon? After 5, I wouldn't be surprised if that is how the devs plan to retcon that game. Something happens that makes Sophitia not in the mood on the night she would've been pregnant with Patroklos or whatever.

Ridley_Prime
*veterans that drew people to SC to begin with
Damn edit time.

With the reveal of Taki finally out of the way though, that mainly just leaves Cervantes (while I would not mind Shura as an alternative or extra again, Cervantes is too much of a series staple to sensibly replace), Astaroth, Yoshimitsu, and I guess Tira too, but with or without them, am already quite content with who we all know is in the game so far.

cdtm
If they didn't replace X with that stupid clone from 5, they probably won't rub out C with T&A.

Nemesis X
X? You mean Xianghua? You mean her daughter then. Yeah I'm not much of a fan having these vets get replaced with teenagers myself.

Ridley_Prime
Even worse when said offsprings are made to be like millennial stereotypes. Some of the kombat kiddies of MKX are probably better examples as far as that though.

Jmanghan
tbh Patroklos was pretty ass, as was his sister. I did enjoy Zwei, Viola, and Xiba though.

Siegfried should have been the one to fight Nightmare though, Zwei fighting him made no sense.

What happened with Pyrrah in SC5 was the consequence of her despicable brother's actions so I'd cut her some slack. If they do retcon Patroklos' existence in an alternate timeline, I hope they keep her.

Pyrrah was annoying, imo.

Tzeentch
They're all garbage.

Now, Cassandra and Seung Mina on the other hand..

StyleTime

Jmanghan
I really hated her stance too, she just always seems so utterly timid even when shes cutting people up, her moves are rather clumsy and I really hate her voice.

Pyrrha Omega was a bit better, definitely more bad-ass and threatening, but I still didn't like her all that much.

I did like Patroklos Omega's design tho, that all black he was working with created a nice parallel of colors that looked pretty awesome.

Zwei was clearly the best new character imo, him and Viola.

Though my favorites will always be Siegfried and Nightmare, they are such awesome characters.

Could've done with that Graf Dumas dude as his own character on the roster separate from being transformed into Nightmare tho.

Nemesis X
Sure, you can judge someone by their movesets. Lore-wise, Patroklos is scum. Talk about Pyrrah failing her mother and aunt with fraidy cat yelps when she fights. Meanwhile Patroklos is a psychotic moron. Follows Dumas and Elysium's orders and only after doing said orders does he realize "maybe I shouldn't have done that. Well crap." This dude slaughtered civilians suspected of being Malfested when there wasn't even proof and then he went to go slay the sister who only became corrupt in the first place because he abandoned her. The latter gets fixed when a time traveler conveniently arrives to offer Patroklos to do something different like TALKING TO HER.

Nightmare has always been the best.

God was it satisfying when Zwei beat the shit out of Patroklos... twice.

Zwei is just this cool laid-back dude, and the story would have been SO much better if he was the main character. His fighting style was original, unique, and cool, his design was bad-ass, his character was probably the best newcomer to come out of SCV, and he just seems... eh, like a cool dude.

His morals are in check, he doesn't act like a brat whether he wins or loses, and most importantly, he's not dumb.

Patroklos should have been left on the sidelines, why'd it need to be Sophitia's kid, and if it was her kids, why did they have to make them so obnoxious?

Nemesis X
Zwei, Siegfried. Heck, I'd rather the story had been about Natsu looking for her master, Taki who apparently went missing. Had they gone that route, at least it would've been more likely she'd been added to SC5. Instead we got Mr. Family Issues as the protagonist sick

Patroklos sucked too.

I don't mind older cast members getting replaced by a new generation. I actually think that is a cool thing about Soul Calibur. Much of the cast started out as teenagers/young adults. They actually age with each game(Mitsurugi is 46 by SCV), relationships play out, folks have kids, people turn into vampires, wars are won/lost. While some characters, like Raphael and Ivy, are immortal, it wasn't meant to be an eternal soap opera. It totally makes sense some of them die, stop fighting, or....get lost in another dimension like Cassandra.

By all means, bring on the new kids. Just don't make the new kids suck.

Ridley_Prime

StyleTime
I can only speculate of course, but I think that was because the new kids were mostly shitty.

I'm not that much of a lore guy, and they were off-putting even to me.

Khazra Reborn
I thought the legacy characters in MK were horrible, as well. They can keep that crap.

Tzeentch
There are people in the world who dislike Cassie? Whaaat?

One of the worst mary sue's I've ever seen. I'm surprised if you even like her given who her father is.

Takeda was the only one that even had much development, and from everything I hear about SC5's legacy characters, am glad I didn't get to know the lot of them. Hopefully we don't see them again regardless, from 6 and onward, or at least the worst among them... The world will not miss Patroklos and the like.

https://i.imgur.com/ih16QYh.gif There's nothing wrong with Cassie, shes cool and all. But to make her as big as she was, to make her more then she ought to have been.

We can have the protagonists kids while still focusing on the big names like Johnny, Raiden.

I mean having her beating this almighty Elder God in Shinnok, was just... bad writing.

Ruining Quan Chi's character, and removing some characters in the process in favor of these new characters which, obviously not everyone is gonna get behind. Take a risk, but make sure these new guys are even more likable then the OG's.

I always viewed Patroklos as a dude that needed his ass beat a few dozen times to recognize the world doesn't revolve around him and his problems.

Back on topic, glad to see Talim back, though she wasn't one of the ones I expected to see next, but I'll take it.

Between Smash Ultimate (yeah, Namco's still doing Smash apparently) and this game, Namco will have many people by the balls for awhile... and I'm okay with that, even if it means I'll be putting off other things like Resident Evil 2 remake for awhile (awesome as it is) due to how invested I'll be in the aforementioned games.

edit: Not to mention anime fighter after anime fighter that Namco's also doing (Shonen Jump Force, etc).

Tzeentch
You're both conflating plot issues with character design. It's gay as **** that we have to have three Batman films for every non-Batman film, but that isn't the reason for why Batman is a shitty character.

There could be an argument that Cassie's role in MKX was hamfisted and shitty, but that has nothing to do with her aesthetic, move-set, personality etc.

confused When did I attack her character design? There is nothing wrong with her aesthetically. She is a mary sue though out of what we got from MKX, but is more due to the shitty writers and not bringing in the writer of the comics for the game than it is the character itself. Still, plot/execution-wise, I can stomach even Rey from the current Star Wars more than I can Cassie.

But eh, opinions.

Seung Mina, and Astaroth, just revealed. I've got a feeling we'll see Cassandra soon too.

Interestingly, I had no idea Namco held a popularity poll to determine the cast for future games. Unsurprisingly, all of the SCV kids ranked at the bottom. Only the mimic bosses came in lower, but they aren't real characters anyway. Apparently, one representative expressed surprise over Patroklos ranking near the bottom despite being the main character. Viola was the most popular newbie and didn't even crack the top 20...

Patroklos can make Prince Charming from Shrek want to cringe and call a momma's boy. No crap he would be unpopular. I'm surprised that someone at Namco was surprised.
