The fans have asked, and from the looks of things, Bandai Namco listened! Yes folks, it’s official… they’re adding 2B from NieR: Automata to Soul Calibur 6 as a playable guest character! She will be the game’s second guest character alongside Geralt of Rivia from the Witcher games.
2B will also be the first character that will be part of the game’s season pass. There will be three other bonus characters that they will be introducing for Soul Calibur 6 for this season. The fourth one has been confirmed as Tira. Bndai Namco promised that they will be introducing 2B to the game “soon”.
Here’s how they describe her character for SCVI:
A new guest character will be joining the stage of history! Meet YoRHa No. 2 Type B from Square Enix’s NieR: Automata. 2B and her dual blades, Virtuous Contract & Virtuous Treaty, are designed for combat against machine lifeforms, employing acrobatic leaps and mid-air slashes, lightning-fast evasions and perfectly coordinated strikes! She will be making her way to the #SOULCALIBURVI along with her own stage and background music.
Expect the staff to reveal more details in the days to come. Soul Calibur VI is now available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
