Bandai Namco released some exciting SoulCalibur VI gameplay screenshots and footage earlier this week, and now we’re getting an in-depeth look. The latest video focuses on the returning fighter Sophitia. The breakdown provides a good look at how the 2018 release will play.

One of the features that was shown off is the new reversal edge. This allows players to “clash against each other and follow-up with powerful counterattacks based on their opponent’s actions.” The game will feature a wide variety of modes including online battles, or fighting against the computer.

Check out the SoulCalibur VI Sophitia gameplay breakdown below:

Here are the details Bandai Namco has released thus far:

The SOULCALIBUR franchise has been the premier 3D weapon-based fighting series since the original SOUL BLADE released in arcades in 1995. SOULCALIBUR VI retains the series’ signature 8-Way Run movement system, providing super smooth 3D movement, while integrating new gameplay systems such as the exciting Reversal Edge. Reversal Edge enables characters to clash against each other and follow-up with powerful counterattacks based on their opponent’s actions. Challenge the computer AI, compete against friends, or challenge fighters from around the world in high-speed dynamic battles with jaw-dropping visual effects.

Taking place in the 16th century, revisit the events of the original SOULCALIBUR to uncover hidden truths with a diverse lineup of new and returning characters with their unique fighting styles including series mainstays; Mitsurugi and Sophitia.

SoulCalibur VI is set to release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC sometime in 2018.
