The “Leader of Humanity” enters this tale of souls and swords

In the recent “Libra of Souls” trailer for SoulCalibur VI, a new character was introduced to the title’s mythology but was left nameless. Now, Bandai Namco Entertainment officially revealed the name and moveset of the mysterious magician – Azwel.

A self-proclaimed “Leader of Humanity”, Azwel is the second original character to join the roster after Grøh. He wields an interesting weapon called the”Palindrome” that is able to summon other weapons out of thin air, even in the middle of his combos.

The latter half of the trailer hints at a powered up mode that players might have to fight at the end of the game (similar to some other bosses in the series’ history), one that appears to wield both Soul Edge and Soul Calibur.

SoulCalibur VI is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 19, 2018.
