A Brand New Warrior is Announced for Soulcalibur VI
It seems the folks at Bandai Namco wanted to surprise people today, particularly fans of the Soulcalibur games. They have announced that a rare occurrence is taking place as a brand new character is being added to the game. Azwel, born in the Holy Roman Empire, member of the Aval Organization, and wielder of a mysterious weapon called the Palindrome, presents a truly unique foundation for a fighting game character.
Blessed with uncanny intelligence and an undying love for humanity, Azwel has researched and studied human history, medicine, war, and art. His journey has led him to conclude that he must assist humanity in overcoming its impending doom. Wielding his Palindrome, a weapon which processes fragments of both the cursed and spirit swords, Azwel can conjure double swords, a giant axe, or a spear & shield, out of thin air during battle. This makes him a formidable opponent as each of his weapon sets present different offensive and defensive tactics for players to use or overcome.
