SC2 was the first fighting game to make me fap. Does that count? Also loved doing that trick of Link twisting around the arm, dragging them a few feet and smacking them in the back of the head with his sword. That grapple has helped me win so many bullshit fights by ring out.

Yeah, I remember coming home from elementary school every day and spending countless hours playing SCII........and don't get me started on SCIII. Ooh...had a lot of good times with that one I did.

Puberty was a hell of a time to discover SCII. The fact it had Link in it made me rent it. Guest fighter are a gateway drugs to other franchises you'd normally wouldn't try.

So a montage was posted with the words "Soul Calibur will never die". I guess this is them hinting at a new game.

Hypothetically what kinds of characters would be good for the next installment in the series? Maybe a Ottoman Janissary or Native American Tomahawk-wilder.

Based on all the activity going on on the official SC facebook page, I'm willing to bet that SCVI is a sure thing. Who knows, maybe we'll see something sometime after the hype for Tekken 7 dies down a little.

Does anyone think that Zoro from One Piece would make a good guest character? Either him or Guts from Berserk.

that'd be cool, (Zoro especially could offer a very unique playstyle) But highly unlikely. given that neither series has enough recognition as say, someone like Darth Vader of Ezio to a general audience.

Here's my list of guest fighters I'd personally like to see.
Ryu Hayabusa (Ninja Gaiden)
Vergil (Devil May Cry Franchise)
the Pricne (I forget his name) (Prince of Persia)
Sora (Kingdom Hearts)
Tyreal (Diablo III)
Kylo Ren/Darth Maul/Rey (either one) (Star Wars)

How about one of the Ninja Turtles as a guest fighter? Leonardo or Raphael would be my top choices, as I don't think the last two games had anyone using their respective weapons.

I made all 4 turtles in SCV :lol: they looked really good too. There's a tutorial on YouTube.

There is someone that uses knunchucks and someone that uses a staff. But nobody that I recall that uses dual katana blades or Sais.

The Natsu/Taki Style is a decent substitute for the sais. As forth duel Katana, Cervantes' style could work. It's a shame Shura wasn't in SCV, her weapons (duel katanas with Cervantes' moveset) would've been perfect.

Nice to see Sophitia back. Hopefully this means they're ditching the lame replacement clones, or at least bringing the original crew back alongside them.

Tough to say, considering the trailer was too short to really tell, but I personally hope it's a sequel. But, I'm probably in the minority on that one, considering I'm one of the few people how actually liked the replacement characters (most of them anyway.)

TitanoGoji16 wrote:Nice to see Sophitia back.

Agreed. While I admit, I din't really care that they cut some of the veteran characters, as the characters they did cut were ones that I could honestly live without (especially Yun-Seong, never like that guy) However, Sophie was one of the characters cut that I did miss (along with Setsuka and mah man Zasalamel)

Yet another in the growing list of games I need to pick up next year. I really hope the character creation elements remain. It's one of the funnest things about the franchise if you ask me.

Character creation has become such a staple of the franchise at this point, so I don't see why they'd wanna leave it out. SCV had nearly prefect creation system imo. So I can't wait to see how they'll improve and expand upon it.

Eh, visually, maybe. But the layering system was bullshit and needs to be severely fixed. I lost count of how many times I was trying to create a character and ran into nonsensical obstacles like "You can have a shirt... or pants. Pick one." There is no excuse for limitations like that. A player should be able to throw together whatever combination of clothes or armor they want. That's the entire point. "This coat can't fit over these pants" is inexcusable.

Would a good idea for a new character be a Native American?

I don't see why not. Hell, it'd be a good opportunity for them to finally incorporate Bangoo into the series like they planned to do in SCV.
