Azwel Announced for Soulcalibur VI, Watch Trailer
Soulcalibur VI's roster continues to grow as a brand-new character was announced
Bandai Namco revealed another character for Soulcalibur VI, and it's an entirely new face. Named Azwel, the hulking figure calls himself the ‘’Leader of Humanity.’’ The fearsome foe is set to be the main antagonist in the Libra of Soul story mode, which will join the previously announced Chronicle of Souls mode as part of the fighting game's robust single-player.
Weaponry has always been a key component of Soulcalibur, and Azwel wields an interesting weapon that fans haven't seen before. Called the Palindrome, the bipolar wave amplifier allows him to summon various weapons at his will. One second he's attacking with an axe, and the next he's using a ranged sword. He looks to be an unpredictable opponent that will be tough to combat, and even more difficult to master.
Players will get to go hands-on with Azwel when Soulcalibur VI releases October 19, 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
