Bandai Namco has announced that a familiar face is set to return to the world of SoulCalibur. The ghostly pirate Cervantes is set to invade the roster of the upcoming SoulCalibur VI. The ghostly pirate has two weapons: a main sword Acheron and a secondary dagger named Nirvana with built in pistols. Unlike Tira, Cervantes will be available out of the box.
When Cervantes first gripped Soul Edge, the power of the cursed sword transformed him into a monster. He used the sword to bring a reign of terror and carnage to the world, as the sword continued to manipulated his mind. But soon the cursed sword’s plans were thwarted by a heroic ninja and a brave warrior. Cervantes was defeated, consumed by fire and sentenced to the depths of hell, his body turned to ash.
Later the now new owner of the Soul Edge, Nightmare comes across Cervantes’ remains, but left without noticing the small glimmer of light emitting from his body. The Soul Edge had once again set the terrible wheels of fate moving and brought Cervantes back from the dead. After his resurrection, Cervantes now walks grinning through a sea of corpses, claiming countless souls and leaving desolation and destruction in his wake. His final aim is clear: to once again to make Soul Edge his own.
SoulCalibur VI will be available fpr PC, PS4 and Xbox One on October 19th.
