CDPROJEKTRED‘s moody monster hunter Geralt is coming to the next instalment of SOULCALIBUR, announced with the awesome trailer we’ve linked below.
The character is a perfect fit for the world – more so than previous guests from Star Wars – and we’re sure Geralt is more than ready for a break from Gwent. Check out the trailer and cross those fingers for playable Roach.
“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.”
“All SOULCALIBUR characters have strong convictions and complex backgrounds and this is why it is a great honor for the whole SOULCALIBUR team to welcome Geralt as the guest character in SOULCALIBUR VI.” said SOULCALIBUR producer, Motohiro Okubo. “Thanks to the great cooperation with CD PROJEKT RED, we’ve been able to fully integrate Geralt’s fighting style and appearance. We can’t wait for SOULCALIBUR fans around the world to welcome Geralt to the stage of History.”
Geralt wouldn’t be Geralt without Doug Cockle’s signature dulcet tones, and it’s great to see he’s reprising the role. It’d just be weird otherwise.
