Soulcalibur VI trailer helps you get to grips with the basics


MarkMan looks at Reversals, Break Attacks and more

We are literally days away from the return of legendary fighting series Soulcalibur, as Bandai Namco prepare to launch the franchise sixth entry on PS4, PC and Xbox One, bringing back a cast of classic fighters to do battle once again on the Stage of History.

But perhaps it's been a while since you last took Ivy, Talim, Voldo or Cervantes into battle, and you're feeling a little bit of ring rust. If so, Mark "MarkMan" Julio has got your back in this newest video, which briefly looks over some of Soulcalibur VI's new and returning fighting mechanics.

These include the showy Reversal Edge, Break Attacks, Soul Charge, and the all-new one-button Supers: Critical Edge. Button-mashing gets you pretty much nowhere in Soulcalibur, (well, unless you choose Maxi), so these basic techniques must be mastered if you don't want to end up picking up your teeth with a broken arm.

Soulcalibur VI launches on PS4, PC and Xbox One on October 19
