Say hi to death for me
Bandai Namco has dropped a new trailer for Haohmaru, the next DLC fighter coming to SoulCalibur VI. It's our best look yet at the Samurai Shodown guest character, and we think he looks fantastic.

The fighting game genre is going crossover crazy right now, and previously announced SoulCalibur VI DLC character Haohmaru has finally shown up in the title's latest trailer.

SoulCalibur VI update 1.30 is out today on PlayStation 4, and Bandai Namco is calling it a "major" patch.

To start with, the reversal edge and guard impact mechanics have had their effectiveness reduced. Pulling these...
Amy, the foster daughter of Raphael, is returning to SoulCalibur as the next DLC character for SoulCalibur VI. She's appeared throughout the series in various forms -- some of them non-playable -- but she's looking deadly in the trailer that we've embedded above. Amy doesn't have a release date yet, but we can't imagine that she's too...
Those cheeky code diggers have been picking their way through the latest patch for SoulCalibur VI, and fans reckon that they've found references to upcoming DLC characters.
