Fighting game Soul Calibur 6 is due for a return to consoles and PC later this year. Joining some of the already announced returning characters is Maxi; a nunchaku-wielding ex-pirate who has decided to call an end to his globe-trotting days to fight weaponised warriors from all over the world in the quest for the cursed sword.

Bandai Namco Entertainment has confirmed Maxi’s inclusion in the roster of playable characters for the next Soul Calibur instalment. Maxi’s father had worked in the Ryukyu Kingdom as a merchant. Though fortunate enough to experience different cultures from his trade, he felt tied down by his job. On his deathbed, he told Maxi to go out and see the world. Deciding to live by these words, Maxi set out to seek total freedom. He found this out at sea where he became a pirate to see the world his father couldn’t.

Soul Calibur 6 will be available later this year for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
