More and more characters keep entering the fray in Bandai Namco’s upcoming fighting game, SOULCALIBUR VI. After getting a release date at E3, the updates have been coming fast and furious for the anticipated fighter.
The newest character to join the roster is the classic Cervantes. The pirate is doomed to pursue Soul Edge for eternity.
Per Press Release:
A pirate’s life can only be described as one long sailing adventure, filled with enough twists and turns to last multiple lifetimes. So, imagine the stories of adventure and swashbuckling Cervantes must have since he’s been sailing the seven seas as an immortal pirate since forever!
Cervantes is a bad man in every sense of the term. Wielding dual swords – Acheron which he plundered from its former owner, and Nirvana, a dagger whose hilt houses a pistol – Cervantes is simply deadly with these blades, especially when he rushes opponents, knocks them down, or launches them in the air in order to deal hard-hitting combos for maximum destruction and pain.
All this power is not without its drawbacks as Cervantes is cursed to pursue Soul Edge for eternity, drawn to the sword’s power, his life intertwined with the fate of the cursed blade.
Check out the new trailer below, and stay tuned to Electric Bento as we inch closer to next month’s launch.
SOULCALIBUR VI launches October 19th for Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Preorders are available here.
