Soulcalibur VI adds Inferno

The series' central antagonist.

Soulcalibur VI

Soul series central antagonist Inferno will be a playable character in Soulcalibur VI, Bandai Namco announced.

Here is an overview of the character, via Bandai Namco Europe:

Inferno is the embodiment of Soul Edge’s will, an evil amalgamation of all the warriors’ souls it has claimed. Its motives for being are unknown. Some say it simply follows a desire to fight, maim, and gather souls. The eerie fire that surrounds Inferno is the result of the many souls the sword has reaped being burned to sustain it.

Harvested from the souls it has collected, Inferno possesses a deep knowledge of all fighting techniques – allowing it to use any weapon style with a phenomenal degree of skill.

Though its power defies standard means of measurement – it easily transcends that of any of its previous vessels. Although Inferno’s look changes with every incarnation, rest assured that it is stronger and more brutal than ever!

Soulcalibur VI is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 19.
