In a recent trailer from Bandai Namco Entertainment, it was revealed that 2B from NieR: Automata is coming to SoulCalibur VI. And no this isn’t another fan-made create-a-character version of 2B, this is an official collaboration between the two games.
The trailer features 2B’s move set carried over from her game including her interchangeable swords, her unique dash and dodge as well as combo extensions from her Pod. This unexpected crossover character also showed off a pretty impressive finishing move that reminds of combo finishers from NieR: Automata.
Along with 2B entering the game, a NieR: Automata stage is also being included in the DLC for fans to experience 11945 Earth. The stage is reminiscent of the early area of the game and features background music for a perfect pairing. Things don’t stop there, however, as the DLC is also bringing an alternate costume for 2B featuring a more dressed down look for the android.
On top of everything else, 2B’s weapons, as well as extra parts and stickers from NieR, will be included for all of your character customization needs. There hasn’t been a confirmed release date, but SoulCalibur’s Twitter stated that it’s coming soon.
This couldn’t come at a better time for SoulCalibur VI, as the game has built up quite the momentum thanks to its stellar character creation. You can pick up your copy of SoulCalibur VI on Amazon now. For some reason, if you haven’t already, you can get NieR: Automata on Amazon as well.
