With SoulCalibur 6‘s roster constantly growing, it’s nice to see another old fan favorite return to the ring.
The priestess of the winds finally returns! Yes, Talim is the newest addition to the SoulCalibur 6 roster and she’s back with a vengeance. While we anxiously await more reveals and information to come out of EVO 2018, you can check out Talim and her sweet moves in the announcement trailer below.
The official background for Talim is as follows:
“Hailing from the Village of the Wind Diety, a remote island tribe in South-East Asia, Talim was raised as The Last Priestess of the Winds, being the only daughter of the village shaman. Through this role, Talim learned the ways of the ceremonial Wind Dance and grew up with the two ancestral elbow blades, Syi Sarika and Loka Luha, used for this sword display. Though trained with the blades as part of the island’s ancient ceremonies, Talim’s vast mastery of these weapons and control of the very wind itself, provided her with a fighting ability vastly beyond her young years.
“She spent her entire life on the island until the day a stranger arrived in Talim’s town carrying a shard of Soul Edge itself. Talim could sense the danger of it just from this small shard and vowed to protect the world by returning it to where it belongs, even if this meant leaving her village and family behind.”
SoulCalibur 6 will release worldwide on October 19, 2018, for PS4, Xbox One, and on Steam. If you can’t wait that long, check out what we thought about SoulCalibur 6 in our preview for the game.
