Bandai Namco has confirmed which character SoulCalibur VI players will eventually be able to get, and that character is Hilde. Hilde first appeared in SoulCalibur IV and was also present in SoulCalibur V. In the reveal trailer you can see how she takes on different opponents, using both sword and pole to hit from afar and close range.
Hilde is part of SoulCalibur VI’s second season pass, but a release date is to be confirmed for her. If you are yet to play SoulCalibur VI you can check out what Dom wrote when he reviewed it:
SoulCalibur VI is a fantastic looking entry in the series, but beyond that feels like something of a missed opportunity. The core combat remains as vibrant, weighty and enjoyable as ever, but the Reversal Edge adds in an element of chance that feels at odds with what most fighting games set out to achieve. The two interminably dull story modes don’t help either, with players left to rely on the straightforward arcade and online modes for their kicks.
