Ever since Soul Calibur 2 the Soul Calibur franchise has always been known to have guess characters from other popular franchises. In Soul Calibur 2 it was heihachi Mishima from Tekken, link from The Legend of Zelda series and Spawn from image Comic. For Soul Calibur 5 they added Gerald of Rivia from The Witcher series but recently Bandai Namco announce something pretty amazing last week.
2B. A fan favorite character (and my wife) from another game called Nier Automata joins the roster of Soul Calibur 6. Here a trailer
For those who are unaware Nier Automata is a hack and slash game developed by Platinum Games and the game is all about tells the story of androids 2B and her battle to reclaim the machine-driven dystopia overrun by powerful machines.
So far there is no mention of when the character will be released but here is what you can expect the character to come with when you purchase her either separately or through the season pass with comes with all unannounced characters as soon as they’re released.
I’m excited that she’s in the game because I’m a huge fan of Yoko taro work. he is the director and writer of the nier games and I’ve always felt like he deserves more recognition nier automata really did that. Although on the surfaces games are kind of silly and really requires your attention in order to get the full picture, but once you fully understand the message on what he’s trying to say it really is an amazing game to experience. In addition, the way how he plays with things in video games like save files that we take for granted is really amazing and me going on this little rant isn’t really doing him justice so please go play that game.
(Yes that him I told you he was weird lol)
Glory to mankind
