Inferno confirmed for Soulcalibur VI, but can’t be used in online matches
On Friday, Bandai Namco officially announced that the flaming abomination Inferno would be returning for Soulcalibur VI. As in previous installments of the weapons-based fighting series, Inferno’s powers mimic those of other fighters. The only snag? He can’t be used in online matches.
Bandai Namco Europe released a trailer and an official character biography for Inferno, both of which you can check out below.
“Inferno is the embodiment of Soul Edge’s will, an evil amalgamation of all the warriors’ souls it has claimed. Its motives for being are unknown. Some say it simply follows a desire to fight, maim, and gather souls. The eerie fire that surrounds Inferno is the result of the many souls the sword has reaped being burned to sustain it.
“Harvested from the souls it has collected, Inferno possesses a deep knowledge of all fighting techniques – allowing it to use any weapon style with a phenomenal degree of skill.
“Though its power defies standard means of measurement – it easily transcends that of any of its previous vessels. Although Inferno’s look changes with every incarnation, rest assured that it is stronger and more brutal than ever!”
Soulcalibur VI is scheduled for release on 19 October for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
