Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe and Square Enix are pleased to announce that NieR: Automata’s 2B will be joining the battle of souls and swords in Soul Calibur VI – out now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC Digital.
Sent on a confidential mission, 2B arrived in a location unlike any she had seen before. Scanning her language database for a description, the words “ancient castle” were returned. Her sensors detected no machine lifeforms. “Communication received from Bunker”, spoke the robotic voice from 2B’s tactical support pod. “Mission received. “Objective: Destroy the hostile entity, Soul Edge.”
2B wields two swords, Virtuous Contract, and Virtuous Treaty. Both have been carefully tuned for maximum efficiency in the hands of a YoRHa android. Her fighting technique is specially designed for combat against machine lifeforms, employing acrobatic leaps and mid-air slashes, lightning-fast evasions, and perfectly coordinated strikes.
2B will be a playable fighter in Versus mode, Arcade mode and Online matches – and come with her own stage, background music, and character customisation elements.
This is yet again another nice surprise character to introduce to the Soul Calibur franchise. I’m surprised that I didn’t think of this myself. Did anyone have 2B on their list of guest warriors in Soul Calibur VI?
She’ll come as part of the Soul Calibur VI Season Pass or to download as a standalone character. More information on the release date to be revealed soon.
