It's been five years since the last main Soulcalibur release, so Namco Bandai knows it's about time to roll out Soulcalibur VI.

Fans were a bit letdown with Soul Calibur V, so the series going back to its roots and retelling this story wouldn't be too bad.

While there isn't much information available at the moment, Soulcalibur VI looks to be powered by the Unreal Engine 4. "Soulcalibur VI marks a new era of the historic franchise and its legendary struggle between the mighty Soul Swords!"

Then gravity began to squash down matter into the first stars and galaxies, then creating light in the form of photons. That means that the black hole quasar was formed exactly during that reionization phase after the Big Bang event.

The weapons and character roster is apparently "stellar" and even more so when "combined with a simple control layout". Based on our first look, the game will offer an unbelievable visual experience, with highly detailed characters, stages, and weapons. Soul Calibur VI is coming to PC via Steam and the PS4 as well as Xbox consoles in 2018.

As for that Reversal Edge system, Bandai Namco says, "Reversal Edge enables characters to clash against each other and follow-up with powerful counterattacks based on their opponent's actions". As long as the gameplay is fun, which it does in the brief moments we see, this could help revitalize the franchise.

As was expected, SoulCalibur VI will retain a similar fighting style to previous games in the series.
