SoulCalibur VI and Tekken 7 producer Motohiro Okubo was interviewed by one of Europe’s largest gaming websites,, and showed off new game-play footage of SoulCalibur VI in the process.

The interview itself doesn’t shed too much new information on the SCVI’s newest mechanics, although Okbuo does shed some new light on the “Reversal Edge” mechanic. He seems to confirm that the mechanic is chargeable by holding a button, by admitting that the attack does not come out until it’s “released.”

Outside of that, the interview is worth watching just for its use of almost entirely new footage. Check out the new three hit stab series that leads into Mitsurugi’s Mist stance! Advancing type moves like this are typically on 6 inputs — could this be a replacement for Mitsu’s old 6B:2/6B9 moves? Where do you think this new stance transition would fit into Mitsu’s move list, input-wise?


Hey, I'm just a 3D-head in a 2D-world. I like pretty much all FGC stuff, and I really like hearing about the way people think about games.
