The latest installment in the Soul Calibur series is nearing release and as the weeks go by, we are treated to another character reveal and this time, it’s none other than Raphael, the fencing specialist, who I hated with a passion because I couldn’t get gud against him. Check out his reveal video below!

As a master of the rapier, his fighting style is that of a fencer, delivering deadly blow to opponents through powerful thrusts and slashes. Processing great speed and agility, Raphael is at once difficult to hit and defend against. Yet his life has taken many twists and turns, from noble family member to living as a vagabond in Spain.

Soul Calibur VI launches for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam on October 19 and you’ll be getting exclusive Soul Calibur VI Collectible Playing Cards as a Day-1 Bonus when you purchase the game from participating game retailers across Southeast Asia (while stocks last)!
