A new trailer that was released by Bandai Namco for Soulcalibur VI showed many of the game’s modes include its new Soul Chronicle and Libra of Soul modes. Additionally, Cervantes was also revealed in the trailer that showed the immortal pirate.
Cervantes is another fan-favorite character that has appeared in all of the previous games in this series. Check out some of Cervantes battle techniques and finishing moves in the trailer below:
The trailer shows Cervantes to be a big, strong, heavy hitting character that still has the ability to move fairly quickly, while unleashing a combo of brutal attacks against opponents. Here is the bio for Cervantes that Bandai Namco has posted on its website:
When Cervantes first gripped Soul Edge, the power of the cursed sword transformed him into a monster. He used the sword to bring a reign of terror and carnage to the world, as the sword continued to manipulate his mind. The cursed sword’s plans were thwarted by a heroic ninja and a brave warrior. Cervantes was defeated, consumed by fire and sentenced to the depths of hell, his body turned to ash.
Later the now new owner of the Soul Edge, Nightmare comes across Cervantes’s remains, but left without noticing the small glimmer of light emitting from his body. The Soul Edge had once again set the terrible wheels of fate moving and brought Cervantes back from the dead. After his resurrection, Cervantes now walks grinning through a sea of corpses, claiming countless souls and leaving desolation and destruction in his wake. His final aim is clear: to once again to make Soul Edge his own.
