Astaroth and Seong Mi-Na Announced for SoulCalibur 6 with Gameplay Trailer
Astaroth and Seong Mi-Na are the latest fan-favourite characters to be announced for the forthcoming SoulCalibur VI. Though as much as I love fan-favourite characters from the series, I think it’s about time that some new surprise characters were announced, other than the fantastic Geralt of Rivera from The Witcher series.
Here are some official details on Astaroth and Seong Mi-Na, as well as some screenshots, oh and the trailer, can’t forget about the trailer:
Astaroth is a golem created by the leader of an evil cult. Imbued with an amazing strength as well as the martial art experience of highly skilled warriors, he is the perfect weapon to serve the cult doctrine of destruction and rebirth. All too aware of his mission, the creature is tirelessly seeking for the cursed sword.
He was granted power during his creation by Ares, the Greek god of war, and the god remains the golem’s one true master. Astaroth’s fighting style is based on the White Giant that Ares once observed, but the golem doesn’t seem to care that his style is a mere copy. All that matters to him is how many people his techniques enable him to kill, and how cruelly he can do it…
Seong Mi-Na is a woman, but first of all she remains a warrior. When her father decided to search for a marriage suitor for her, she decided to run away. In her flight, she took the most precious treasure of the Seong family, the Scarlet Thunder a weapon passed down through countless generations.
As one would expect of the only daughter of the Seong family master, Seong Mi-Na trained fiercely in the art of the longsword and acquired great strength and agility. Despite the weight of her weapon, she wields it with disconcerting ease and grace.
SoulCalibur VI will release for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 19th.
