CD Projekt has been teasing this for a few days and it’s finally been confirmed this morning, The Witcher’s bath-tub loving Geralt joins the Soulcalibur VI roster.
Fans will recognise Geralt’s signature fighting style with a combination of swordplay, ability-enhancing potions, and combat magic. Doug Cockle, the English voice of Geralt of Rivia will also be voicing the character in Soulcalibur VI.
“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,” said Marcin Momot, Community Lead at CD Projekt Red. “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 Souldcaliburin a way fans of both series will enjoy.”
“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”, added producer Motohiro Okubo.
Geralt’s world will also be represented in the game as players will be able to fight in Kaer Morhen which will feature music from The Witcher 3 soundtrack.
