Geralt of Rivia Coming to Soulcalibur VI

From Spawn to Yoda to Link, Soulcalibur has had a long history of guest characters and with every new game comes the guessing game of “who’s next?” Well, the guest character for Soulcalibur VI has been revealed and it’s Geralt of Rivia from The Witcher franchise.

Geralt sounds like the perfect fit for the series as he is a dual wielding swordsman with magical abilities. Bandai Namco worked with CD Projekt Red to bring Geralt and Kaer Morhen(Geralt’s home) to Soulcalibur VI, with CD Projekt Red providing original assets from The Witcher 3: WIld Hunt to Bandai Namco.

Marcin Momot, Community Lead at CD PROJEKT RED, said:

“SOULCALIBUR is well known in the fighting games genre for including iconic guest characters. When we were approached with the idea of doing a crossover, we thought our community would really enjoy playing as the witcher. We’ve collaborated with BANDAI NAMCO artists to faithfully recreate Geralt, and shared original Witcher 3 assets like Geralt’s model, animations, and weapons. I think BANDAI NAMCO did an outstanding job of capturing all the details and introducing The Witcher to SOULCALIBUR in a way fans of both series will enjoy.”

Soulcalibur VI is set to release this year on the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
