Last night, we got our first look at SoulCalibur VI gameplay, and we didn’t have to wait much longer for more! Bandai Namco was a guest on the PlayStation Experience 2017 stream today, and they would up giving a 10-minute demonstration of the upcoming fighting game. It’s set to release in 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

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.

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.
