Bandai Namco has announced Siegfried for upcoming fighting game Soulcalibur 6 and released gameplay that shows the series veteran in action.

It's not much of a surprise to see Siegfried announced for Soulcalibur 6, given he's the central character of the Soul series and, more often than not, the protagonist. But it's cool to see how he looks in motion in the Unreal Engine 4-powered fighting game.

Siegfried's Soulcalibur 6 incarnation comes complete with his trademark shining armour and massive sword. Traditionally, Siegfried has been a big but slow swiping character who does massive damage. It looks like he'll play similarly in Soulcalibur 6.

Siegfried is the 10th playable character to be announced for Soulcalibur 6 so far. Here's the list:

  • Geralt
  • Grřh
  • Ivy
  • Kilik
  • Mitsurugi
  • Nightmare
  • Siegfried
  • Sophitia
  • Xianghua
  • Zasalamel

For Soulcalibur lore nerds, here's Siegfried's backstory from Bandai Namco (Soulcalibur 6 is a reboot of the series which covers events starting pre-Soulcalibur):

"After losing to Kilik and his comrades in the form of Nightmare, Siegfried awoke in an unfamiliar place and he is now unable to free himself from the unforgiving memories of his time spent as the cursed sword's puppet. The memory of having killed his own father is haunting him. His true nightmare has only just begun… Full of regrets, he is looking for redemption and he desperately wants to free himself from the cursed sword's grasp!"

Expect Soulcalibur 6 to launch at some point in 2018 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
