Siegfried joins the Soulcalibur VI roster

To no one’s surprise but everyone’s elation, Siegfried will be returning to the Soulcalibur VI roster.

It appears as if this Siegfried is much younger than the one we knew from Soulcalibur’s past. It will be interesting to see what Bandai Namco does with his story, considering that Nightmare is also in the game, and has a costume that gives him Siegfried’s body.

His fighting style seems to have remained in-tact. He is still a stance based momentum focused fighter. All of his attacks have massive start-up but have a lot of range and do massive damage. Siegfried also appears to have some special followups to parries and his gigantic swing launcher now even has a small camera change associated with it (similar to launchers in DBFZ.)

We later get to see Siegfried in his soul charged state, which appears to charge his sword with crackling red energy. In this state, Siegfried appears to auto-parry any incoming attacks and can strike back with a very slow sword slash that triggers an auto-combo. His super is, appropriately enough, one gigantic sword swing.

Who do you think will be joining the Soulcalibur VI roster next? Taki? Talim? Yun Seong? Let us know your roster hopes in the comments.
