Bandai Namco announced during Evo 2018 that Astaroth and Seong Mi-Na will be part of the SoulCalibur VI roster.
Astaroth first appeared in the original SoulCalibur and is a golem created by the leader of an evil cult that has amazing strength as well as the martial art experience of highly skilled warriors.
“He was granted power during his creation by Ares, the Greek god of war, and the god remains the golem’s one true master,” Bandai Namco adds. “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 first appeared in Soul Edge and is a powerful warrior who chose to run away from her family with the legendary Scarlet Thunder weapon after her father decided to search for a marriage suitor for her.
“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,” her description continues. “Despite the weight of her weapon, she wields it with disconcerting ease and grace.”
SoulCalibur VI launches October 19th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
