The Shell of a Proud Man, Cervantes, joins the battle in #SOULCALIBURVI

The release of Soul Calibur VI is just a month away, and so the character reveals are expected to pick up over the next few weeks.

One such reveal has occurred today, with the reveal being timed immediately after an inadvertent leak that was caught by @Flying_Wonkey and reposted via

The Stage of History calls back Cervantes, a recurring cast member from the entire Soul Calibur franchise!

As the Shell of a Proud Man, Cervantes debuted as the antagonist in Soul Edge, one of the prequel titles that would pave the way for the future of the franchise. His fighting style is both unique and brutal, consisting of “gunblades” weapons with guns attached to the hilt of swords. (think Squall Leonhart from the Final Fantasy franchise)

The weapons themselves are named Acheron and Nirvana, and they appear to augment a mid-range rushdown style, of which opponents will need to be cautious when approaching Cervantes in battle.

Having once played the role of an infamous boss character from Soul Calibur’s predecessor titles, Cervantes now joins a lineup of approximately twenty characters for the upcoming installment to the 3D weapons-based fighter. And before anyone asks - no, he will not be a DLC character, but rather, a member of the base roster.

Soul Calibur VI releases for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam (PC) on October 19, 2018. To pre-order your copy, visit
