2B Announced for SOULCALIBUR 6
(2B Announcement Trailer)
2B from the critically acclaimed by game Nier Automata has been announced for SOULCALIBUR VI as a DLC character. This is exciting news, and it comes out today at a crazy time. One of the best parts of the game is its amazing detailed character creator. Everything from body shape, size, and skin tones to many species and a wide inventory of equipment, it is very easy to create custom characters with more detail than almost any other game. Many players took it upon themselves to try to recreate beloved characters from other franchises with varying degrees of accuracy. I re-created other characters like Thanos all the way down to his “snap”, and Dr Strange to the point of his magic summoning powers. One of the best recreations to date is 2B. She can be most accurately be recreated with in-game measures, and the internet is already filled videos and images of 2B impersonators in Soulcalibur 6. Game Infinite even shared some recreations of her and the resemblance is pretty darn good.

I would like to think Bandi Namco Entertainment saw the outpouring fan desire for 2b in the game and made it happen. If this is true this is an example of some of the quickest and most positive response to fan ideas I have ever seen as the game is just over a week old at this point. More likely this is a happy coincidence and Bandi Namco just very very accurately predicted a fan favorite they should add to the game.

2B is going to a part of the games paid Season Pass which costs $29.99 (U.S) which includes Tira and two additional unknown characters. The exact release timing for 2B is not yet known. But we do know she will come with a new map stage, and some DLC weaponry/content. Stay tuned for more on Game Infinite News as more information becomes available.
