Surprising nobody, but still a nice confirmation to have, Siegfried is now confirmed as a playable character for Soul Caliber VI at launch.
One of the series more iconic characters, Siegfried wears big crystalline armour, wields an excessively large sword, and generally walks around looking shiny and sparkly while smashing stuff really hard with his blade. Below, you can read Bandai Namco's description of the fighter, and his role in the new game's plot:
After losing to Kilik and his comrades in the form of Nightmare, Siegfried awoke in an unfamiliar place and he is now unable to free himself from the unforgiving memories of his time spent as the cursed sword’s puppet. The memory of having killed his own father is haunting him. His true nightmare has only just begun… Full of regrets, he is looking for redemption and he desperately wants to free himself from the cursed sword’s grasp!
Soul Caliber VI is due out on PS4, Xbox One and PC later this year.
