Maxi Brings Back the Shissen Karihadi Style on SoulCalibur VI

May 31, 2018Written by John Abrena

Bandai Namco has confirmed that the ol’ nunchaku-wielding master will be back on SoulCalibur VI. That’s right, Maxi, the “Dandy of the Sea,” will be joining the fray!

Maxi is a favorite of many players due to his high speed moves and deadly mix-ups and combo variations, not to mention being flamboyant as hell. He will once again be wielding his prized Fatibal nunchaku from the earlier SoulCalibur games instead of his other pair, Soryuju. Maxi practices Shissen Karihadi, a fictional fighting style that involves fast, flicking movement with his weapon combined with an equally fast footwork and deadly kicks.

Here’s more information about Maxi via Bandai Namco:

Maxi’s father had worked in the Ryukyu Kingdom as a merchant. Though fortunate enough to experience different cultures from his trade, he felt tied down by his job. On his deathbed, he told Maxi to go out and see the world. Deciding to live by these words, Maxi set out to seek total freedom. He found this out at sea where he became a pirate to see the world his father couldn’t.

Maxi’s weapon is a nunchaku which is extremely difficult to wield. It will give a rain of pain to the opponent but only if you know how to handle it!
