Raphael Officially Confirmed for Soulcalibur VI

Bandai Namco has officially confirmed a new character for Soulcalibur VI.

The Spanish noble Raphael is returning in the upcoming fighting game. Previously, Raphael and Cervantes were leaked at an event in Melborne at the start of September before being officially confirmed.

Here’s a synopsis for Raphael:

As a master of the rapier, his fighting style is that of a fencer, delivering deadly blow to opponents through powerful thrusts and slashes. Processing great speed and agility, Raphael is at once difficult to hit and defend against. Yet his life has taken many twists and turns, from noble family member to living as a vagabond in Spain. Where ever he ends up, more about Raphael will be revealed in Soulcalibur VI when the game launches.

In case you missed it, our 30+ minutes of hands-on direct-feed footage with the game at E3 can be found here.

Soulcalibur VI is launching across Windows PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on October 19th.
