During Paris Games Week Bandai Namco announced a brand new guest character making her way to SoulCalibur VI, YoRHa No. 2 Type B from NieR: Automata. 2B will come armed with her giant dual blades and, much like Geralt, her movest looks like it’s been directly lifted from NieR: Automata. A trailer, which you can see below, shows 2B using some flashy moves and it looks like the character will have some decent range and combo potential.
2B will be available as a new character DLC, or included as part of SouCalibur VI’s season pass. The season pass can be purchased for $29.99, or comes as part of the $89.99 Deluxe Edition.
2B’s DLC will also come with extra weapons, character customization options, an alternate outfit using Kaine’s clothes from the first NieR, new BGM, and a new stage. Bandai Namco hasn’t announced a release date other than “Coming Soon.”
SoulCalibur VI is currently available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
