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.

11 Comments

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.

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.

Soul Calibur 5 was not finished. The story was only about 20% done the game itself was further along but not entirely finished. A lot of characters they wanted put in never made it (like Talim). This why Alpha Patrokolos is basically just a reskin as they already had her movesets up and running. But putting them on him was faster making a new character model.

@notafan:

Most people like it more than 5 but it wasnt my cup of tea.

I dont like 6's new characters or guests.

I felt character customization was a step down overall.

A new combat mechanic is introduced which basically amounts to some RPS mini game kind of similar to SF4 focus absorb. (very gimicky and annoying)

For those three reasons i dont play it.

I'm impressed that they're still supporting this game. I remember when it released you saw a huge boom in people posting CaS stuff and then it just vanished.

Setsuka was my fav character in Soul Calibur 3. Thanks to her absence on Soul Calibur 4 and 5, I skipped both. And been skipping Soul Calibur 6 until now. So this is good news to me.

@jamesbr27: Her moveset was in 5 as well, just as another character. But he played exactly the same.

@Z_Buster: while you're correct, was the insult necessary?
