We’ve known that CD Projekt Red’s The Witcher himself, Geralt of Rivia, is coming to Soulcalibur VI, for a while. But we haven’t really gotten a chance to see his moves in the fighting game broken down just yet. That’s all changing as of today, with a more in-depth look at things. CD Projekt RED’s Borys Pugacz-Muraszkiewicz took to a new video clip to show off Geralt’s moves, with a fighting style that shows off his “scalpel-like” moves in combat.
“Our role was making sure that Geralt in Soulcalibur VI moves, feels and plays like Geralt from The Witcher 3,” says Pugacz-Muraszkiewicz. “However since movement, timing, play-perspective and general responsiveness are very different in the fighting game, we had to go back to the drawing board and reinvent the way Geralt behaves in certain situations.”
Soulcalibur VI is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC by way of Steam this year, including Geralt and your favorite characters from the series. There’s a lot to look forward to if you’ve been following the venerable fighting game since its inception. You can watch the Witcher himself in action in the clip below, along with additional insights into what makes him such a formidable opponent. Looking for a new main to go to when you delve into Soulcalibur when it launches? You may have just found him.
