Soulcalibur VI Adds Geralt of Rivia from The Witcher Series
Bandai Namco has announced today that Geralt of Rivia, the star of The Witcher series of games, will be joining the playable character roster of the upcoming Soulcalibur VI. Judging by the trailer for his inclusion, he’ll be another sword-wielding melee character, with the ability to conjure up his notable spells to attack enemies.
Bandai Namco was the publisher of both The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in European territories.
Here is an overview of Geralt in Soulcalibur VI, via CD Projekt RED:
Geralt was trained at the elite School of the Wolf and is considered one of the deadliest monster slayers. He possesses superhuman reflexes and strength, as well as superior sword fighting skills. Players who choose to fight as Geralt will utilize the witcher’s signature fighting style — a combination of swordplay, ability-enhancing potions, and combat magic.
Doug Cockle — the English voice of Geralt of Rivia — returns in Soulcalibur VI to reprise the role. Gamers will also be able to fight in Kaer Morhen — home keep of the School of the Wolf. Accompanying players in battle will be “Hunt or be Hunted” — an iconic composition from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt soundtrack.
Soulcalibur VI is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC 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,” 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 Soulcalibur in a way fans of both series will enjoy,” added Marcin Momot.
