Bandai Namco only recently announced that Geralt from the Witcher series will be coming to Soulcalibur VI, but they have now released a video explaining exactly how the Butcher of Blaviken works in the game.
Developers from CD Projekt Red, creators of The Witcher games, explaining what makes Geralt unique, from his animations to his tools. One example is Geralt’s use of signs, something he can spec toward or generally just use for trivialities in the Witcher games, as part of his fighting style and repertoire in Soulcalibur VI.
Igni, for example, can be used as part of a combo, while Axii makes the opponent stand up to get comboed as part of Geralt’s critical art. You can check out the video below to see more of what the Assassin of Kings can do.
