Soulcalibur VI Brings Back This Character After Decade Away

After being missing in action for a decade, vengeful warrior Setsuka is returning to Soulcalibur VI as the latest DLC character.


Bandai Namco has announced that Setsuka is coming to Soulcalibur VI. She'll arrive in DLC 11 on August 4 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

A master of the blade with a lightning-fast offense and a passion for flowers, Setsuka is the third Season Pass 2 character following the release of Samurai Shodown's Haohmaru back in March and Hilde in November last year.

Now Playing: SoulCalibur VI Review

Originally debuting in 2005's Soulcalibur III, Setsuka would make one more appearance in Soulcalibur IV and then spent a decade on the sidelines while her student Patrokles appeared in Soulcalibur V.

In addition to Setsuka, Soulcalibur VI will also receive a free update that adds a classic costume for the flower-loving swordmaster, a balance sweep, the Murakumo Shrine Grounds stage and a new Grøh episode.

DLC 12 will release on August 4, bringing with it the Tekken-themed Character Creation Set E.

Soulcalibur VI wasn't the only fighting game that revealed new information over the weekend, as the Japan Fighting Game Publishers Roundtable also featured updates on games such as Tekken 7, Guilty Gear Strive and Samurai Shodown.
