In case you missed it, Bandai Namco recently released the first half of a mini documentary looking back at the history of its SoulCalibur series. With SoulCalibur VI on the verge of release, it's an interesting video that gets you up to speed with the rise and fall of the fighting game's popularity, particularly within the competitive space. Now, the second part of the documentary is here, and it puts the focus squarely on the new sequel.

Judging by the comments made in this video, those within the competitive scene are pretty excited. Interest seems to be much higher for this entry than usual, due to it being accessible and a little nostalgic while also sprinkling in some new ideas. Reviews so far have been strong, too -- we'll be bringing you our verdict soon.
