entertainment system, Xbox One, and STEAM® for PC. Enter into a new
chapter of weapons-based 1 vs 1 fighting with returning fan-favorite

The SOULCALIBUR franchise has been the premier 3D weapon-based

in SOULCALIBUR VI,” said Mark Religioso, Brand Manager for
BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. “A stellar lineup of characters
and weapons, combined with a simple control layout means gamers of all
skill levels can jump into the action and decimate the competition.”
