Earlier this year it was revealed that SoulCalibur VI would be receiving NieR: Automata’s 2B as another guest character to stand alongside Geralt of Rivia from the Witcher series. Now, 2B has a release date of Dec. 18, according to a twitter post from Bandai Namco.
When 2B joins the roster next week, she will be available as an individual purchase or as part of the season pass. The pass costs $29.99 and includes 2B, returning fighter Tira and two unannounced characters. 2B can also be accessed with the $89.99 deluxe edition of the game.
The DLC will also come with new weapons, new character creation and customization options, a costume based on Kaine from the original NieR, new BGM and a new stage.
In the reveal trailer for 2B, we saw her using her dual blades and a number of moves and abilities taken from NieR: Automata, much like Geralt of Rivia uses Witcher signs and other iconic moves from the Witcher series.
