Today during the SoulCalibur VI World Invitational 2019 in Las Vegas, Producer Motohiro Okubo introduced Hilde as a new playable character.
Hilde was introduced with a trailer, and she looks awesome.
She will be the first DLC character coming in season 2, which will also bring a lot of different changes.
This means that Okubo-san isn’t ready to announce a release date for season 2 just yet. Taht being said, he promised that the details will be announced “very soon.”
Okubo-san also mentioned that after seeing today’s tournament he “really wants to grow more next year,” but of course he needs to talk with the company and he’ll bring good news “as soon as possible.”
You can watch Hilde in action below.
We semi-recently learned that Bandai Namco considers the game’s launch a successful one, which is not too surprising since it’s getting a season 2.
That certainly wasn’t guaranteed considering that the series had been absent from the spotlight for a long time. Yet, developers focused on appealing to their core fanbase and it proved to be a successful choice.
The second season was announced back at EVO 2019, with the reval that it’ll include four new character including a guest: Haohmaru from Samurai Shodown. We also recently saw a trailer showing off the new moves that will be added to all characters.
