A Reddit user by the name of DasVergeben has claimed Soul Calibur 6 is coming to Nintendo Switch.
Soul Calibur is a popular fighting game series developed by Bandai Namco. It has never seen a release on the three big gaming platforms – Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One.
According to DasVergeben, Soul Calibur 6 is currently in development for Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PC. They also claimed Soul Calibur 6 would officially be revealed to the public in early December, and a new Fire Emblem character would be included in the Switch version of the game.
For more details check out the huge information dump. Take this with a pinch of salt as the information isn’t verified by anyone yet.
-> Soul Calibur is for PS4, PC, and Nintendo Switch. No info on an Xbox One version yet. It doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist, but don’t be surprised if there isn’t one.
-> The game will be revealed in December.
On either the 7th, 8th, or 9th most likely (7th = The Game Awards, 8th = PSX Opener and Fête des Lumières, 9th = PSX)
If they still opt not to do it on those dates for whatever strange reason, then on its anniversary on the 20th.
-> One of the reasons that Soul Calibur VI was never revealed for its anniversary last year in December, even though they were building up to a reveal even as late as the fall of last year was because they ran into technical issues that sent the game into a mini development hell of sorts.
-> The game was still in the motion capture stage even back in May of this year.
-> The thing I heard was the cause or most likely cause for the delay was the implementation of a moveset / style switching thing in particular (like having multiple movesets per character, weapons even). Since that not working out how they wanted was such a big deal to its direction and draw to the game, delaying it until they either figured it out or decided to ultimately nix it was something they went back-and-forth on but was retained in a certain capacity, however. You will understand what I mean by this eventually.
-> Kilik is back and uses his staff moveset again, not the Weapon Master thing that everyone hated on SCV. He will have a new rival too.
-> Gameplay and mechanically, Supers are back and as far back as July, there was some kind of universal mechanic like V-Triggers.
-> Huge focus on story elements.
-> I know of two veteran characters at the moment. I can’t say who quite yet. But they’re very obvious inclusions that aren’t surprising at all. They were both on SCV. They aren’t characters who originated on SCV. I don’t know any of the characters introduced on V that are returning or not yet. These two characters have been on every numbered entry since introduced, but were introduced in different games.
-> I know of three newcomers. The one that I know the most about is very unique and different, being a first ever for the series mechanically. Their unique weapon style is blade based. This character is important to the story, but not the main focal character.
-> The other new character has ties to the aforementioned.
-> The third new character I know about is suspected to be a Fire Emblem character for reasons I cannot divulge.
