No Taki backs

Ninja master Taki re­turns to the Soul­cal­ibur fold

PlayStation Official Magazine (UK) - - THE BIG 10 -



This main­stay Soul­cal­ibur fighter has stepped out of the shad­ows and been re­vealed as part of the con­tin­u­ously grow­ing Soul­cal­ibur VI ros­ter. Though, given her se­cre­tive ninja skills, per­haps she’s been hid­ing the whole time? Two weapons are bet­ter than one, with Taki wield­ing her trade­mark clas­sic Rekki-Maru and Mekki-Maru dual swords for this lat­est bout.

Fu-Ma’s Shadow might be a ninja master, but she’s def­i­nitely not afraid to re­veal her­self for a good old fash­ioned ass-kick­ing. She’s a bril­liant black­smith too, hav­ing crafted both of her own swords, which is some feat. We have trou­ble just mak­ing break­fast in the of­fice with­out burning the toast – and the age-old con­flict as to whether we should have jam on toast with or with­out but­ter is sure to spark many a Soul­cal­ibur throw­down. Taki? She’s a but­tery beast for sure.


Taki joins an ever-swelling cast of re­turn­ing fan favourites, in­clud­ing the re­cently an­nounced Siegfried. New­com­ers have also been join­ing the ranks, such as Ger­alt from The Witcher series, the lat­est in the long line of cameo ap­pear­ances you of­ten see in Soul­cal­ibur games. Pre­vi­ous guest char­ac­ters have in­cluded Darth Vader in Soul­cal­ibur IV, Ezio Au­di­tore in Soul­cal­ibur V, and even Kratos in Soul­cal­ibur: Bro­ken Des­tiny. A lot of Soul­cal­ibur games have more than one guest char­ac­ter, so there’s a still a chance there will be more surprises to come, though it’s al­ways great to see the best of the rest, like Taki, re­turn­ing too.

Her Mekki-Maru is fused with a frag­ment of cursed sword the Soul Edge.
