Bandai Namco has announced the return of two Soulcalibur veterans as Ivy and Zasalamel are unveiled as playable characters in the upcoming Soulcalibur VI.
Ivy, known for her signature Snake Sword (among other things), was born to an aristocratic English family. Her early years were spent in a loving environment until her father’s obsession with alchemy and immortality gained by obtaining the Souls Blade drove him to an early grave. Shortly thereafter, Ivy’s mother passed away as well. Now, she is on a journey to destroy the very sword that destroyed her family.
Zasalamel returns to the stage of history wielding his iconic Death Scythe, Kafziel. Born into a clan called the Guardians of the Spirit Sword, he is an excellent warrior. He is also arrogant. That fault caused him to be banished from the clan with both of his arms broken in the process. Now, he hoped to discover the secrets to reincarnation and everlasting life.

Soulcalibur VI is expected to release this year on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
