Namco’s weapons-based fight­ing se­ries is back, and this time it’s a soft re­boot that retells the story of Soul­cal­ibur, mean­ing that you’ll see fa­mil­iar scenery and char­ac­ters.

In fact, only three of the 21 fight­ers are new to the se­ries, which is a tad dis­ap­point­ing. Still, the com­bat is tight and the new Re­ver­sal Edge me­chanic adds a cool de­fen­sive op­tion.

The se­ries’ tra­di­tion of graph­i­cal ex­cel­lence con­tin­ues here, as Soul­cal­ibur VI is a beau­ti­ful game. Like­wise, there’s plenty to do for the solo player, with a story mode that vis­its all char­ac­ters at var­i­ous points in the time­line, plus an Rpg-style mode in which you de­velop your own char­ac­ter. It’s a wel­come re­turn over­all, but don’t ex­pect rev­o­lu­tion­ary ad­di­tions.
