Confirmed: The Witcher's Geralt is a fighter in Soulcalibur 6

Aardly a surprise.  

It is confirmed: Geralt of Rivia, star of The Witcher series, will be a fighter in Soulcalibur 6. The castle grounds of Kaer Morhen will be his stage.

It will be the first time Geralt has appeared outside of a Witcher video game, which is something I'm sure Witcher creator Andrzej Sapkowski will be over the moon about - although if the Netflix Witcher series he's involved with takes off I'm sure he won't mind too much.

Geralt's Soulcalibur 6 cameo puts him in elite company: Yoda and Darth Vader were the iconic headline cameos in Soulcalibur 4, and Assassin's Creed's best-loved hero, Ezio, cameoed in Soulcalibur 5. His inclusion probably has a lot to do with Soulcalibur 6 being made by Witcher distributor Bandai Namco, and the company sniffing a cross-pollination opportunity, but it shows how popular The Witcher and Geralt have become nonetheless.

Soulcalibur 6 is due this year on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
