Here are reveal trailers and screenshots for Ivy and Zasalamel:
Ivy – Coiling Contempt
Weapon Name: Ivy Blade
Fighting Style: Unrelated Link
Born to an aristocratic English family, her early years were spent in a loving environment, that is until her father’s obsession with alchemy and immortality gained by obtaining the Souls Blade drove him to an early grave. Shortly thereafter, Ivy’s mother passed away and so began her journey to destroy that which brought such despair to her family – Soul Blade.
Zasalamel – The Dark Side of Karma
Weapon Name: Kafziel
Fighting Style: Self-Taught
Zasalamel, born into a clan called the Guardians of the Spirit Sword, has always been an excellent warrior. While his fighting skills were second-to-none, his arrogance drove him to a clan rule which ended with both his arms being broken and him being banished from his clan. Ever defiant, Zasalamel began studying ancient arts in the hope of discovering the secrets to reincarnation, but with everlasting life, a heavy price must be paid…
SoulCalibur VI releases in 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
