SoulEdge Man at Arms

The Soul swords are said to manifest their shape based on the spirit and personality of their wielders, but at a cost… Thankfully, creating Soul Edge and SoulCalibur, the evil sword and its good counterpart, is just like bread and butter for the Man at Arms: Reforged blacksmiths. Having made Link’s Master Sword and many other blades known throughout pop culture, the team is commissioned by Bandai Namco to step onto the Stage of History.

Soul Edge is so large, it can’t even fit on the drawing board! Though its size is impressive, the sleek SoulCalibur, used by Xianghua, also provides a challenge. It’s made of two separate swords that need to be joined together. The end piece is also a decorative undertaking, as it’s a multi-faced statue. Soul Edge, on the other hand, needs to have an eye made, and the pieces meld together to hold a firm structure.

Kayane appears in the video, lending some game lore to the process, talking about the backstory of the blades. In the end, the power of these swords turns out pretty difficult to wield… for mere mortals, anyway.

SoulCalibur VI releases this week, on October 19th, on Steam, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
