After a week of speculation, Bandai Namco and CD Projekt Red have confirmed that Geralt of Rivia will appear as a guest character in Soulcalibur 6.
The hero of The Witcher series was shown off in a new trailer, which you can watch below:
Geralt will be voiced by original voice actor Doug Cockle, and brings with him a Kaer Morhen stage to fight across. The soundtrack for the stage will be “Hunt or Be Hunted” from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
Geralt makes sense as a Soulcalibur guest – he’s got the old-timey aesthetic, focus on swordplay, and a touch of magic for good measure. We’ve already seen him using a series of his Sign spells, so it seems he’ll be able to mix things up a little.
It’s due for release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC at some point this year.
