Soulcalibur Modders May Have Found the Next SC VI Characters in Season 2
CAUTION: POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD!!!
Modders always seem to find the good stuff. We’re going to file this under “Awesome if True,” because we may have found some leaks for the Soulcalibur VI Season 2 pass! As of today, Haohmaru from Samurai Showdown has shown up as the second of the four characters to come. He wields his mighty Fugudoku and will pose a threat to anyone who stands against him. But what can we expect for Soulcalibur VI Season 2? We just might have an answer.
Welcome Back to the Stage of History
A new update for Soulcalibur VI means that we have new rumors going wild, especially for Season 2. Haohmaru’s already here, meaning that two of the four new characters are ready to go. It sounds like someone left some data in the files that they shouldn’t have, and version 2.10 has some content that may relate to the new Soulcalibur Season 2 characters.
This was found and shown off courtesy of AvoidingthePuddle, and made sure to state that this is, of course, rumor-milling and speculation. The third potential character was shown to be Setsuka! The character’s NMD files were found to be left behind in this update, and the slot ID is the same used in previous games.
If that’s not enough, female character and equipment parts, as well as 8 weapon NMD files are there, as well as Face, Chestplate, Gauntlet, Necklace, Shins, and Shoes (and other body part data). This amount of data does suggest that this character if it is Setsuka, is further along in the development road. If accurate, the probability of Setsuka being character #3 is high. Now I liked Setsuka when I first played her. Her weapon is an Iaitō hidden in an oilpaper parasol. That’s just class if you ask me.
But who else is likely to show up in Soulcalibur VI’s Season 2 of content? The next revealed character is suggested to be Hwang! Like Setsuka, the new NMD files are found still in the data, along with the same ID slot. There are significantly fewer of the NMD files found that compare to Hwang, but it’s still a reasonable amount. The Stage of Modding discord server is the source of this information, from what we gather.
If this is true, it’s a huge move! Hwang is a long-time fan favorite. Setsuka was a truly unique character among the other Souls characters. I think these would be strong choices to go with an already varied, diverse roster. I would not have minded another Samurai Showdown character, or perhaps a weapon-wielding character from another franchise. Samurai Showdown though is most known for weapons-based combat (exempting the Souls games, of course).
What about you though? Who do you want to see journey to the stage of history? Whether it’s a new character or a returning fan favorite, what do you want to see make their way here? Perhaps Jago from Killer Instinct? A return of one of the older “guest” characters like Link or Spawn?
. . . Now that I’ve put it out into the universe, let’s get Jago in! That would be pretty darn awesome.
