The ghostly pirate Cervantes will be playable in SoulCalibur VI, Bandai Namco has announced.
“When Cervantes first gripped Soul Edge, the power of the cursed sword transformed him into a monster,” the publisher explains. “He used the sword to bring a reign of terror and carnage to the world, as the sword continued to manipulated his mind. But soon the cursed sword’s plans were thwarted by a heroic ninja and a brave warrior. Cervantes was defeated, consumed by fire and sentenced to the depths of hell, his body turned to ash.”
He has since returned from the dead and is now leaving desolation and destruction in his wake while he attempts to reclaim the Soul Edge.
Consumed by the influence of the cursed sword, Cervantes once brought a reign of carnage around him. He now wields Acheron and Nirvana, a pirate’s longsword and a dagger hiding a pistol in its hilt, but thirsts for the power of Soul Edge… ⚔ #SOULCALIBUR VI pic.twitter.com/SxmUUcmUId
