Siegfried is pretty easily one of the most prominent heroes of the franchise. And he’s looking every bit his old self in this new Soul Calibur VI trailer.
His story began in the original Soul Edge, when Siegfried appeared as a young German man with short blond hair, blue eyes, and the will and strength to take-on all challengers. Throughout the SOULCALIBUR series, Siegfried has continued to mature, change in appearance as he’s become more battle worn, and gain greater strength and skill in the arena of battle.
Siegfried has never been a favorite of mine in Soul Calibur. I’ve always though he was kind of boring. That’s not to say that he doesn’t have a neat gimmick though, cause the “knight” thing is pretty cool. Maybe it’s just because almost the entire remaining cast is so imaginative, that he looks a bit dull in comparison.
Not that that really matters, since you really can’t have an SC game without the main man here. And he is very much that, since Siegfried has always been one of the main heroes of the series. If you’re a fan, it’s probably a very good thing to see him back in action.
Soul Calibur VI hits the PS4, PC, and Xbox One some time this year.
