THE WITCHER’S Geralt Will Come As a Playable Character in SOULCALIBUR 6
News just come out and the Bandai Namco announced, together with CD Projekt Red, that The Witcher’s Geralt, will be a playable character in SoulCalibur VI. A stage, which is based on The Witcher’s Kaer Morhen, will also be available as a playable arena in the upcoming game.
Doug Cockle, will do the voice of the Witcher, and will keep his signature fighting style and arsenal of signs including the fire spell Igni and the spell Aard. Geralt will also use a “combination of swordplay, ability-enhancing potions, and combat magic,” revealed by the developers. In addition, CD Projekt Red’s community lead, Marcin Momot said that,
“We’ve collaborated with Bandai Namco artists to faithfully recreate Geralt, and shared original Witcher 3: Wild Hunt assets like Geralt’s model, animations, and weapons. I think Bandai Namco did an outstanding job of capturing all the details and introducing The Witcher to SoulCalibur in a way fans of both series will enjoy.”
As a fan, I like to see him in a game of his own, instead, he is making small cameos in other games. But, given that CD Projekt is busy at the time making other game, it would presumably be a long time before we see Geralt back in action if CD Projekt Red chooses to develop a new Witcher game in the near future.
SoulCalibur VI is slated for a release this year on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. So what you think about this news?
