Hwang is the final SoulCalibur 6 Season Pass 2 DLC character

On a knife edge.

Bandai Namco has revealed Hwang as the final SoulCalibur 6 Season Pass 2 DLC character.

Hwang arrives in SoulCalibur 6 on 2nd December alongside a free content update that adds a new stage called Motien Pass Ruins, Seong Mi-Na's classic costume parts, more Tekken CAS parts, and new Mitsurugi and Nightmare episodes.

The trailer for Hwang was shown at the end of today's EU West tournament of the SoulCalibur 6 Online Challenge (catch up on Twitch). The trailer is below:

Hwang is a Korean swordsman who made his first appearance in Soul Edge (the first instalment in the Soul series released in 1995). He then appeared in SoulCalibur and SoulCalibur 3 as a playable character. Hwang has been non-playable in the main SoulCalibur series ever since.

With Season Pass 2 now coming to its end, fans are wondering whether Bandai Namco plans a third - and a fresh set of DLC characters - for the two-year-old fighting game.
