In some exciting news released out of the Bandai Namco camp regarding their upcoming Soul Calibur VI game, custom character creation is back, not only for arcade and versus modes but also along with a new single player game mode called Libra of Souls.
Being touted as an updated Chronicles of the Sword from Soul Calibur III (which has easily been the best mode ever to come out of the Soul Calibur series) that will see your custom created character (made from a selection of sixteen races including mummies, skeletons and automatons) go on a quest to stop “a new evil mastermind” from gathering the Soul Edge shards. Characters from the main storyline, Chronicle of Souls, as well as other players’ custom fighters will appear throughout Libra of Souls.
Matches in this mode will also have their own specific rules that Bandai Namco says will let players shape their own path.
Custom fighters from Libra of Souls can also be used in online casual and ranked matches.
Check out the reveal trailer below which also offers a look at some of the customization that will be available.
Also announced is fan favorite Tira, who will be making a return as a standalone DLC purchase or free for those who have pre-ordered the season pass.
SOul Calibur 6 is set for release in October
