Another classic fighter returns to the stage of history as Hwang Seong-gyeong is poised to hit the long-lived fighting game on December 2nd.
We need a hero
Back and ready for action is Hwang Seong-gyeong. According to the Wiki, the Korean swordsman was last playable all the way back in III. So if that’s accurate, then it’s high time that he did make a return.
And what better way to do it than in Soul Calibur VI, Bandai Namco’s fighting game that just keeps on rolling. The fighting game was originally released in 2018, but the publisher continues to keep it fresh with both new characters and new creation parts.
Today’s announcement actually covers both of those categories, as there’s also set to be a ton of new creation stuff. And yes, that drop will include more Tekken parts, so you can add some more medieval-themed Iron Fist heroes and villains to your game. Of course, you have to make ’em first.
Here’s a neat little cinematic look at Hwang Seong-gyeong making his return, along with a bunch of gameplay.
Along with all of the paid content above, there’s also a set of freebies hitting on the 2nd. Players will get a new stage with the Motien Pass Ruins, as well as “Seong Mi-na’s Classic Costume set and new Mitsurugi and NIghtmare episodes”.
Again all of the above will land on December 2nd, and will be available for all versions of SCVI.
