Soulcalibur VI readies itself for Samurai Shodown's Haohmaru


Just ippon over to another franchise

As part of the ongoing EVO Japan 2020 fighting game tournament, Bandai Namco has streamed a brand new trailer for its swords and sorcery fighter Soulcalibur VI, giving us a good look at its next DLC character, Haohmaru, who will be taking time out from Samurai Shodown the square off against Mitsurugi, Taki, Voldo and the rest of the SC crew.

As the poster boy for SNK's classic fighting franchise, Haohmaru brings with him quite a pedigree. A stoic and noble warrior, an exceptional swordsman, and a masterful tactician in combat, Haohmaru will slide right into the Soulcalibur universe, where he will join fellow guest stars Geralt from The Witcher and 2B from NieR: Automata.

You can check out the Haohmaru's trailer below, recorded from live stream by YouTuber Rikukey2.

While we do know that Haohmaru will be the next DLC character to arrive as part of Soulcalibur VI's season two pass, no specific date has been released for the wild-haired samurai. It's a fair bet to say that fans will probably not be kept waiting much longer.

Soulcalibur VI is available now on PS4, PC and Xbox One. Samurai Shodown is available now on PS4 and Xbox One, and arrives on Nintendo Switch February 25.
