Inferno Confirmed for Soulcalibur VI

Bandai Namco has confirmed another playable character for Soulcalibur VI.

The original antagonist, Inferno, is returning as a playable character in the upcoming sequel. Here’s a brief synopsis on the villain:

Inferno, the original antagonist that kicked-off decades of struggle for power in both Soul Blade and SOULCALIBUR returns to SOULCALIBUR VI to wreak havoc and deal death to all challengers. As the evil spirit of Soul Edge, Inferno is fearsome, possessing deep knowledge of fighting techniques which he mimics with uncanny skill, allowing him to use any weapon and fighting style with a phenomenal degree of expertise. Inferno’s power defies standard means of measurement, if one were only comparing skill and weaponry, then Inferno easily transcends any of Soul Edge’s previous vessels.
