Soulcalibur 6 Adds 2B from NieR: Automata

The combat android 2B from action RPG NieR: Automata will be joining the fight in Soulcalibur VI very soon.

Even though weapon-based fighting game franchise Soulcalibur has pioneered many other titles to step into the ring, it heavily struggled to stay popular and relevant over time and Soulcalibur VI is trying to bring it back on track by as a reboot to the series.

The game was already in talks for featuring a huge guest appearance of Geralt of Rivia from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and now Bandai Namco Entertainment is planning to bring the android heroine of NieR: Automata, 2B as their next guest fighter.

Since 2B was created to fight against an army of hostile robots that invaded the planet, her fighting capabilities and skills are unquestionable. Aside from acrobatic prowess, she is profound in melee attacks and she intends to continue fighting as long as she can for the glory of mankind.

During combat, 2B will be assisted by her robot companion Pod 042 to perform long distance attacks on her opponents. She is introduced in the game as a complete package because of her unmatched fighting abilities and for a great crossover value.

Although when 2B will join the cult classic series is yet not confirmed, we know that it would be through a downloadable content included in the Season Pass priced $29.99 only. However, buying the Soulcalibur VI Deluxe Edition for only $89.99 automatically adds her with two other playable characters when they are released.

One of the returning fighters from the series, Tira will join 2B when the season pass finally launches in an undisclosed date in near future. Maybe we get to see Bandai Namco include Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy VII or Kratos from God of War next.
