Voldo Confirmed For Soulcalibur VI

Bandai Namco recently confirmed that Voldo will return for Soulcalibur 6. Having made his debut in the 1995 arcade game Soul Edge, Voldo is one of only five Soulcalibur characters to have made an appearance in every main installment in the franchise.

Also returning, are Voldo’s unique fighting style and aesthetics. In his debut trailer, he can be seen wearing his trademark fetish garb, sending his opponents flying with his….pelvis?

Voldo was the right-hand man to Vercci, an arms dealer with the nickname “Merchant of Death”, and was tasked to protect the Money Pit, where all of Vercci’s treasures were kept after his death. After spending years in the dark depths of the Money Pit, Voldo lost his eyesight but gained a heightened sense of hearing and awareness, making him extremely deadly to those who dared to enter the Money Pit in search of riches.

Soulcalibur VI will take place during the 16th century and revisit the events of the first Soulcalibur game to uncover hidden truths, as well as introduce new game mechanics, following the recent trend of fighting games giving players more defensive options. The new “Reversal Edge” will allow players to defend against oncoming attacks and strike back in stylish slow-motion.

Voldo’s confirmation brings the current known character roster up to 15, ranging from newcomers to fan favorites. The full list of currently confirmed warriors is as follows, with new characters listed in italics:

  • Geralt of Rivia
  • Grøh
  • Ivy
  • Kilik
  • Maxi
  • Mitsurugi
  • Nightmare
  • Siegfried
  • Sophitia
  • Taki
  • Talim
  • Voldo
  • Xianghua
  • Yoshimitsu
  • Zasalamel

Bandai Namco has also announced a collector’s edition that will contain:

  • The standard edition game
  • The collector’s edition box
  • A 12″ Collectible Sophitia Figure
  • The soundtrack on disc
  • A metal case with a built-in soundbox that has 4 in-game voiceover audio clips
  • A 120 page Art Book.

There will also be a Deluxe Edition bundling everything from the collector’s edition, minus the figure, but plus a season pass for the game which will include 4 additional characters, 2 armor packs, and over 100 customization items. Soulcalibur VI is currently scheduled for release on October 19th, 2018.
