The Witcher’s Geralt Is Coming to SoulCalibur VI

Geralt of Rivia, the hero of The Witcher video game franchise, will be featured as a playable character in SoulCalibur VI.

The announcement was made this morning by Bandai Namco in a teaser video for the upcoming 3D fighting game, targeted for release later this year. It will be the first time Geralt has appeared in a game outside of his own franchise.

Doug Cockle, the English of Geralt in the Witcher series, will reprise his role for SoulCalibur VI, which will feature the character’s signature fighting style that combines swordplay and combat magic.

SoulCalibur is well known in the fighting games genre for including iconic guest characters,” Marcin Momot, community lead of The Witcher developer CD Projekt Red, said in a statement. “When we were approached with the idea of doing a crossover, we thought our community would really enjoy playing as the witcher. We’ve collaborated with Bandai Namco artists to faithfully recreate Geralt, and shared original Witcher 3 assets like Geralt’s model, animations, and weapons. I think Bandai Namco did an outstanding job of capturing all the details and introducing The Witcher to SouldCalibur in a way fans of both series will enjoy.”

SoulCalibur VI will be released later this year on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
