Soulcalibur 6’s gameplay certainly impressed with its fluidity

Okubo said: “At the planning stage, all our project members played all the previous versions of Soul Calibur. We analysed what was fun and how people played them. So I want people to enjoy the same level of fun as previous versions in Soul Calibur when it comes to Soul Calibur’s values and culture and the reason why they fight with swords.
Soulcalibur 6’s gameplay certainly impressed with its fluidity and responsiveness, and it should provide a pleasant nostalgia-trip for those who played previous Soul Calibur games. The main attacks are high, low and middle ones, and the game lets you launch guard moves that must be carefully timed to be effective. Mapped to the bumpers are a slow but unblockable attack (which, we discovered, could be evaded), along with two special attacks known as Critical Edge and Reversal Edge.

It also makes sense that a crouch goes under a horizontal attack, but gets owned by a vertical.
I played Soulcalibur 6 and here are my humble thoughts
Groh gets a new weapon called the Double Saber, which can be used as a double-blade (think Darth Maul’s lightsaber) or it can be split into two swords, which is a first for the series. A lot of detail went into making this character unique from all the others rather than a carbon copy of someone else with a new skin splashed on. You can watch the full video for yourself below as we don’t want to totally spoil the experience for you, as we slowly make our way toward the eventual 2018 release of the game on PC.
While producer Motohiro Okubo was reluctant to talk about specifics of Soul Calibur game beyond what could be seen in the GameSprite Paris showcase demo, he was happy to talk about his general approach to resurrecting the franchise. Okubo has been at GameSprite for 20 years, and VI is his first Soul Calibur game: his last role was Producer of Tekken 7.
Nightmare is the long-time antagonist of the series, and though the series is being rebooted, he is still expected to be a villain in the new game.
You'll learn more in the full impressions video below, and you'll get to see exclusive gameplay footage for a handful of characters as well.
Would The Witcher's Geralt of Rivia actually be a good guest character for Soul Calibur 6?
