Mission: Eliminate the entity known as Soul Edge.

Bandai Namco has been teasing a reveal for Paris Games Week, and indeed, Kayane’s interview with director Motohiro Okubo revealed a surprising announcement.

NieR: Automata‘s protagonist, 2B, is joining the cast of SoulCalibur VI at the Stage of History in 1586 A.D.

Shortly after the announcement, the official Twitter account posted the English-version trailer of 2B. It features Ivy traveling to the future in year 11945 to what looks like 2B’s own stage. She will be accompanied by her BGM, weapons, and costume parts that will be usable in Create-A-Character Mode. You can see her Critical Edge attack towards the end of the trailer.

Looks like fans of Yoko Taro’s action game got exactly what they wanted! Even Kayane herself has asked Okubo if there’s a chance 2B would be a guest character in the game.

Enjoy the trailer below and stay tuned for more details about 2B as they surface.
