After years of teasing, Soul Calibur VI is finally happening. Bandai Namco has revealed that the latest installment will retell the events of the original title. Soul Calibur has toyed with the age of its characters before so a young looking Mitsurugi and Sophitia duking it out is not much to go on. This back-to-basics approach is good for long time fans but new fans, who are more familiar with Talim and Tira, may have a hard time recognizing some of the characters. Mainstays such as Taki, Ivy, Kilik and Siegfried would return, as well as new characters. Soul Calibur VI will be released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC in 2018.
