Rumor: SoulCalibur VI’s Guest Character is From One Piece

Tyler Treese @tylertreese 03/08/2018

DasVergeben is a particularly renowned leaker in the fighting game community, having correctly leaked information about Injustice 2Dragon Ball FighterZ, and other titles. Now he’s back with new information on SoulCalibur VI, although it comes from a different source than usual, so take it with a grain of salt.

The source says that the roster will be comprised of 22 characters at launch, and that six more will arrive as DLC. Another particularly interesting tidbit is that supposedly the guest character will be Roronoa Zoro of One Piece fame. He’d certainly be an awesome addition and Bandai Namco already has a relationship with that series.

Here’s the main bullet points of the leak (via DasVergeben’s Reddit post):

It’s important to note that DasVergeben said to treat this as a rumor and with a grain of salt. His track record in the past has definitely been spot-on, but he does clarify that this is not his usual source, and that he hasn’t been able to confirm everything.

Furthermore, here’s what Mark Julio, who serves as a community advisor for Bandai Namco, had to say about the supposed leak over at the fighting game forum 8WayRun:

Hey, just wanted to say the so called ‘leaker’ is making stuff up. lol. Don’t trust everything you see on the internet.

And no, I’m not going to go into this further. Please look forward to SOULCALIBUR VI!

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