Bandai Namco has confirmed one of the most iconic characters of the franchise, the ghostly pirate Cervantes, is returning to fight in Soul Calibur VI. When Cervantes first gripped Soul Edge, the power of the cursed sword transformed him into a monster. He now fights with two weapons, Acheron and Nirvana. His main sword, Acheron, has been his sword since he plundered it from its hapless former owner during his reign of dread across the Atlantic Ocean. His secondary weapon, Nirvana, is a dagger with a pistol in the hilt.
The game launches for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on 19th October.
