Are these the next two characters joining the Stage of History?
A few days ago, SoulCalibur VI was patched to Version 1.10. This update provided a variety of balance adjustments and bug fixes, in addition to implementing the game’s first post-launch DLC character as part of the Season Pass, YoRHa No. 2 Type B: 2B, from NieR: Automata. Though we are still waiting on official word on who else will be joining the roster alongside Tira and 2B, some curious data miners examined the contents of the patch and discovered the names of Cassandra and Amy inside the game’s code, with the labels “DLC2” and “DLC3” beside them.
Cassandra Alexandra is the younger sister of Sophitia, who debuted in SoulCalibur II, looking to relive her sister from the burdens of battling Soul Edge on behalf of the blacksmith God Hephaestus. She can be seen in Sophitia’s Soul Chronicle, wearing a new outfit.
Amy was originally just a street urchin living out her days in solitude, before being adopted by Raphael after saving him from a group of soldiers that were pursuing him. She was then adopted by him, taking the last name Sorel and training in the art of fencing. She made her debut in SoulCalbur III as a gameplay-clone of Raphael, but was made much more distinct upon her return in SoulCalibur IV. She can also currently be seen in Raphael’s Soul Chronicle.
To potentially solidify things further, they ranked 12th and 13th in the SoulCalibur Popularity Poll that was held prior to the development and announcement of SCVI, with Cassandra getting 339 votes to Amy’s 311. It should noted that all of the top 10 characters in this poll are currently in the game. While this should be taken with a grain of salt, as it isn’t officially confirmed, a similar leak happened with Dragon Ball FighterZ, correctly predicting that Bardock, Broly, Fused Zamasu, SSGSS Vegito, Base Goku, Base Vegeta, Cooler and the Dragon Ball Super version of Android 17 would be the eight mighty warriors contained in the FighterZ Pass.
What do you think of these two ladies potentially returning to the Stage of History? Will you be playing them if they arrive? Sound off in the comments below.
