"[Zasalamel] was born into a clan called Guardians of the Spirit Sword charged with protecting the legendary Soul Calibur and Soul Edge. While he was exiled from the clan for breaking their sacred laws, Zasalamel nonetheless managed to discover the secret of reincarnation, making him a mighty magician and dangerous foe."

Interestingly enough, the team wanted to include characters using more realistic fighting styles, citing For Honor as an example.

Hopefully, the panning of the mere idea of Cervantes being DLC isn’t falling on deaf ears if that “former employee” leak is actually true.

On the other hand, Zasalamel was first introduced in "Soul Calibur" and only returned in the fourth main installment of the franchise. While Ivy's sole purpose is to destroy the Soul Edge, he was born to protect it as well as the other titular legendary sword.

We look forward to finding out which other classic Soulcalibur characters will be appearing in the game and whether Soulcalibur 6 will also be introducing guest characters from other games like we saw with Ezio from Assasins Creed and Devil Jin from Tekken in Soulcalibur 6.

SoulCalibur 6 will be released later this year on PC.

The character design and battle planning team apparently have voiced some regrets for character designs that they and apparently one from Okubo himself wishes they had an opportunity to include in the game.

As can be seen in the trailer, the evil magician, Zasalamel, who first appeared in Soulcalibur in 2005, will also be joining the fight again with his death scythe and magical powers. The gameplay reveal trailer below shows how Zasalamel will be using his range of spells and abilities to send his enemies to the dark world of the abyss.

A user on 4chan posted what is said to be the full roster list of Soulcalibur 6, including the console-exclusive guest fighters. According to the post, the Hunter from Bloodborne will be the PS4-exclusive fighter, whereas Killer Instinct‘s Jago will appear in PC versions of the game. The post also points to a PC browser version of the game that will apparently be announced at E3, and claims that Lucina from Fire Emblemwill be the Switch-exclusive fighter.

With this information stemming from a post on 4chan, fans should take this supposed “leak” with a massive grain of salt. That being said, the post seems to have a little more credibility now, as two of the fighters it claimed to be the on the roster have now been confirmed to be a part of the final Soul Calibur MMORPG.
