As SoulCalibur 6 approaches the character roster continues to grow, with the newest addition being the pirate Cervantes, one of the most iconic fighters from the series.

Players may already be familiar with Cervantes from previous SoulCalibur entries and may be aware that the last we saw him he was the prevous owner of the Soul Edge and was defeated and inevitably killed. So how has he returned? Turns out, Nightmare, the new owner of the Soul Edge has found his remains and the Soul Edge brought Cervantes back from the dead.

As you’d expect, Cervantes wields his blades, Acheron and Nirvana, with lighting precision as he cuts his way through opponents. Like most of the other characters, it seems his move set is recognizably faster than previous installations. His new finisher looks especially brutal as well.

Interestingly his second weapon, Nirvana, comes with a pistol in the hilt which is powerful enough to break an opponents guard allowing for a follow-up strike.
