Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe has announced the nunchaku wielder Maxi will be joining the Soul Calibur VI roster. Soul Calibur VI will be launched in 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
Maxi’s father had worked in the Ryukyu Kingdom as a merchant. Though fortunate enough to experience different cultures from his trade, he felt tied down by his job. On his deathbed, he told Maxi to go out and see the world. Deciding to live by these words, Maxi set out to seek total freedom. He found this out at sea where he became a pirate to see the world his father couldn’t.
Maxi’s weapon is a nunchaku which is extremely difficult to wield. It will give a rain of pain to the opponent but only if you know how to handle it! As someone who has played previous iterations that included Maxi he is a fascinating character mechanics wise. His moves are fast and devastating and with the proper skill can end fights quickly.
As Soul Calibur VI draws closer and more and more characters are revealed are there characters that you’d like to see return to the arena in this latest installment in the Soul Calibur franchise? Personally, I’d love to see the demonic pirate Cervantes return.
Soul Calibur VI will be launched in 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
