Last Updated: August 2018

From the original announcement trailer, Sophitia and Mitsurugi were confirmed to be in the game, as well as an unknown new character shown at the very end of the trailer that ended up being Grøh, who was shown in the recent character trailer above. The new character trailer also confirmed Mitsurugi, Nightmare, Xianghua and Kilik. At the very end of this new trailer you can see a corrupted version of Kilik, but that's just a power-up you can use mid-match, not a new form. Most recently, Ivy and Zasalamel were both confirmed for the game. While Ivy was a given, fans are very excited to see the return of Zasalamel, who missed out on Soul Calibur IV and V (unless you count the create-a-soul mode in SC4). Last month, the first guest character has been revealed as Geralt from The Witcher series will be included in the game, and now we have confirmation that Siegfried Schtauffen will be joining Nightmare in Soul Calibur VI, alongside the newly revealed ninja, Taki returning to the fray.

It was comfirmed at E3 2018 that one more brand new character would be added to the launch roster. In addition, at least one more guest character will be coming as one of the four DLC characters that are planned to arrive after the game releases. Talim was also announced shortly after E3 2018, and at San Diego Comic-Con 2018, Bandai Namco announced Voldo's addition to the roster.

Evo 2018 had a big Soul Calibur 6 tournament, and on Finals Sunday Astaroth and Seonh Mi-Na were announced. It's expected that more character announcements will be made at Evo 2018 in early August. With the game set to release in just a few short months, there are plenty of characters left to reveal, so expect the announcements to heat up.

The blitz of Soul Calibur information is finally starting to arrive as we draw ever so close to E3 2018. With two announcements in May for Yoshimitsu and Maxi, expect E3 to bring hands-on previews for many characters here at Prima Games. It also wouldn't be too surprising to see another character or two announced at the big show, but we'll have to wait and see on that. Either way, Yoshimitsu and Maxi are staple characters to the series and a welcome addition to Soul Calibur VI.

Geralt will utilize the witcher’s signature fighting style, which includes a combination of swordplay, ability-enhancing potions, and combat magic. We don't have much additional information beyond the trailer below, but we expect to see matches with Geralt in the ner future so stay tuned for any updates on that front. In the past some Soul Calibur games have had more than one guest character, and we've heard rumors surrounding everyone from Zoro (One Piece) to Jago (Killer Instinct), so there's still a chance more guest characters will be announced. If that happens we'll be sure to keep this article updated!

This new Soul Calibur game takes place during the time of the first Soul Calibur game, so many fans are assuming most, if not all of the staple characters will be making an appearance. So far that looks to be the case with the current known roster, but for now we’re only listing the confirmed characters. The fact that Zasalamel is now confirmed means that characters that were introduced long after the events of Soul Calibur 1 still have a chance to make it into the latest title. We’ll continue to update the list above as new characters are officially confirmed.
