Let see which way the wind’s blowing!

As Talim sails into SoulCalibur VI, many fans are pleased to see her return, particularly because she was absent in SoulCalibur V. Shortly after her announcement, new information has arrived with a few details about her refined playstyle.

According to a Gamer.jp interview, with translations by Flying_Wonkey, Talim will still, of course, be a speedy fighter with stances that rush the opponent down with a barrage of strikes. The newest installment of the series reworks her Wind Saults, making them more accessible to use. Additionally, she has a new “Air Rage” stance which can be used offensively or defensively. And lastly, her Critical Edge actually restores her health, so she is yet another character with healing powers (Yoshimitsu’s super also heals him).

Enjoy the screenshots below, and stay tuned to Shoryuken for upcoming SoulCalibur VI news.
