Spain-based media publication site GuiltyBit recently sat down with Soulcalibur VI Game Producer Motohiro Okubo for an interview pertaining to the upcoming game's inception up to the possibility of the game's future/post-launch contents. One Angry Gamer was able to translate and share some of the details which include the producer confirming the absence of a cross-play feature and a Nintendo Switch port.
"Soul Calibur VI is an origin of the series that restarts these two core elements. And it stands as a new game filled with new stories too." Motohiro Okubo Speaking to GuiltyBit translated by One Angry Gamer.
Soulcalibur VI is not a sequel but a "reboot" of the entire series designed to entice both new and hardcore players. The game will feature a new plot composed of two grand stories, one of which involves Witcher protagonist Geralt. Purists need not panic since everything is still based on "the story of two swords: Soul Calibur vs Soul Edge" bringing with it several characters from the original game fully optimized for an evolved combat system. The game will also have various modes for solo play that will come with its own weapon achievement system. In terms of DLC's or post-launch content, Okubo states that they are still considering the possibility of such contents. Soulcalibur VI is scheduled to launch this year for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC with no definite date.
