SoulCalibur VI Reveals Raphael in a New Character Announcement Trailer
PS4™ & XONE™ – US, EU, AU & JAPAN
Bandai Namco has just dropped a new character announcement trailer that will join the roster of the upcoming SoulCalibur VI. Following the character reveal of “The Immortal Pirate,” Cervantes, it’s the Rapier-wielding Raphael time to be the talk of the town.
Raphael Sorel, the rapier-wielding French nobleman returns to the SoulCalibur franchise. His character reveals trailer features his flashy fighting style and some of his classic combos. Based on this new trailer, Raphael’s appearance in SoulCalibur VI will match his earlier appearances in the series instead of his vampire-like looks from later entries in the series.
You can check out his character trailer below for a better look at his awesome playstyle along with the official description from Bandai Namco.
As a master of the rapier, his fighting style is that of a fencer, delivering deadly blow to opponents through powerful thrusts and slashes. Processing great speed and agility, Raphael is at once difficult to hit and defend against. Yet his life has taken many twists and turns, from noble family member to living as a vagabond in Spain. Where ever he ends up, more about Raphael will be revealed in Soulcalibur VI when the game launches.
Raphael debuted in the SoulCalibur II game and has made his appearance in all other main SoulCalibur games in the franchise. If you are excited to play Raphael, you won’t have to wait too long because the game’s launch date is nearly coming.
If you have missed Cervantes trailer reveal, you can watch it here along with his official description.
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 manipulate his mind. 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’s 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 on October 19 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Pre-order yours here at Play-Asia.com. Reserve your copies now.
