At Evo 2018, Bandai Namco revealed that Seung Mi-na and Astaroth would be returning in SoulCalibur VI. Now, they’ve followed that announcement up with a bunch of fantastic new screenshots of these characters.
The screenshots below give us a look at how these characters have been updated coming into SoulCalibur VI (which retreads the time around the first couple of SoulCalibur games). The redesigns of both characters are mostly subtle. Seung Mi-na’s outfit is similar to her look from that period, with the addition of a shawl of sorts over her top which should show off the game’s cloth physics when she’s in motion. What may be a bigger change however is her color scheme: she’s now sporting pink and purple instead of the red and gold she used to wear.
Astaroth, on the other hand, wears a bit more armor than he used to. Specifically, he’s now sporting a pair of massive, horned shoulder pauldrons. Interestingly enough, as people may have already noticed, Astaroth now has green skin instead of the dark tan skin he had in this period in time in the previous games.
SoulCalibur VI is set to launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 19, 2018.
