Geralt of Rivia Coming to Soul Calibur VI

Geralt Soul Calibur VI - Gamers Heroes
Bandai Namco and CD PROJEKT RED announced today that The Witcher’s Geralt of Rivia will make his way to Soul Calibur VI’s roster.

Geralt received his training at the elite School of the Wolf, and has been considered one of the deadliest monster slayers. Possessing superhuman reflexes and strength, along with superior sword fighting skills, he uses a combination of ability-enhancing potions, swordplay, and combat magic.

The English voice of Geralt of Rivera, Doug Cockle, will reprise the role for the game. Kaer Morhen — home keep of the School of the Wolf – will be a playable stage as well. Accompanying players in
battle will be “Hunt or be Hunted” composition from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt soundtrack.

According to Community Lead at CD PROJEKT RED Marcin Momot:

[testimonials user=” email=” name=” position=” photo=”]“SOULCALIBUR is well known in the fighting games genre for including iconic guest characters. 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 SOULCALIBUR in a way fans of both series will enjoy.”[/testimonials]

Soul Calibur Producer Motohiro Okubo added:

[testimonials user=” email=” name=” position=” photo=”]“All SOULCALIBUR characters have strong convictions and complex backgrounds and this is why it is a great honor for the whole SOULCALIBUR team to welcome Geralt as the guest character in SOULCALIBUR VI. Thanks to the great cooperation with CD PROJEKT RED, we’ve been able to fully integrate Geralt’s fighting style and appearance. We can’t wait for SOULCALIBUR fans around the world to welcome Geralt to the stage of History.”[/testimonials]
