    SoulCalibur VI’s new system, “Reversal Edge,” is a new attack and defense battle system. When the Reversal Edge is activated, it is possible to continuously defend against the opponent’s moves and turn the tides with a sharp counterattack. When you land a Reversal Edge, it’ll go into an action movie-like scene with an intense presentation.
