BANDAI NAMCO and CD PROJEKT RED, creators of The Witcher games series, announce Geralt of Rivia joining the playable character roster of SOULCALIBUR VI, the long-waited weapon-based 3D fighting game scheduled to be launched in 2018.
“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. They 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,”
said Marcin Momot, Community Lead at CD PROJEKT RED.
“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.”
said SOULCALIBUR producer, Motohiro Okubo.
