The history behind Mitsurugi, SoulCalibur’s flagship samurai

The Soul still burns. It’s a known fact now — with the recent announcement of Soul Calibur VI, heralded by series’ mainstays, Sophitia and Mitsurugi. Since the SoulCalibur games traditionally featured quite a bit of lore and single-player content, why not stay a while and listen?

Mitsurugi desires to honor his family name by becoming the most famous swordsman, and shortly after his own personal tragedy he begins practicing the art, showing a great aptitude for it. Soon enough, he makes it his goal to search for the strongest, most worthy opponents on the planet in order to measure his worth against them. Rifles came around, and Mitsurugi also wanted to prove his sword would defeat them — but he failed. Leaving Japan, he began pursuing Nightmare, hearing about a legendary sword of immense power.

Check out the footage below, and share your impressions in the comments; is Mitsurugi one of your favorite (or most hated!) characters in the series? The channel also recently posted about SoulCalibur’s Nightmare.
