Hilde, the sword and spear wielding princess who first appeared in SoulCalibur IV, is returning as a Season 2 DLC character in SoulCalibur VI. Her reveal trailer, which you can watch above, was shown off during the SoulCalibur VI World Invitational tournament this past weekend.

Hilde has something of a colourful background as a SoulCalibur character. In her debut game, she ended up being banned from competitive tournaments due to her ability to knock opponents out of the ring with just a single combo. This was due to how button binding worked back in SoulCalibur IV, as players could charge up some of Hilde's moves by holding down various inputs and then chaining them together.

It goes without saying that Hilde probably won't be quite so broken when she arrives in SoulCalibur VI. Season 2 doesn't have a confirmed release date yet -- Bandai Namco says it's "coming soon" -- but we can't imagine that it's too far away.

Hilde will be the first of four characters coming to SoulCalibur VI through the Season 2 pass, with Samurai Shodown's Haohmaru set to be a guest fighter a little later down the line.
