Season 2 of Namco Bandai's fighting game " SOULCALIBUR VI " is getting more and more exciting.
With the addition of new moves for all characters, many of you may have changed the character you use.
It has been 4 months since the 8th DLC "Hilda" was released in November 2019. Finally, SNK fans have been waiting for the 9th DLC character " Haonmaru ", which will be available on March 31, 2020!
Haonmaru has finally joined the game!
Hao-Maru " is the main character of SNK's " SAMURAI SHODOWN " series of competitive sword-fighting action games, and is already well-known to funglr Games readers.
Now, many of you may be wondering if it's safe to assume that Haomaru will be joining "SOULCALIBUR VI" in the same era as the original game. I'm sure many of you are wondering, but don't worry, it's a time-slip game. It is a time slip.
"You who have a strong soul, I need that rare soul of yours. ......"
The voice spoke directly to the heart of Haohmaru, who had just passed through a deadly blade and won a kashiai. He asks who it is, but there is no sign of response.
He looked around as if staring at his missing opponent, and realized that he was standing on the island of Kakuryujima. He must be far away from the place where they had just died together. However, he was sure that he could still feel the feel of his sword, the fugu poison, in his hand, which he had just used to cut his enemy. Unable to just stay on the island, Haomaru decides to return to where he was supposed to be.
However, something was not right. It wasn't long after he began his journey that he discovered the true nature of his discomfort. Somehow, this place was roughly 200 years before Haomaru was born, during the reign of Toyotomi.
Haomaru remembered the voice that seemed to have caused this strange phenomenon and wondered why he had been chosen, but he was comfortable in this era, which still retains the spirit of the Warring States period.
He met many spirited swordsmen, and repeatedly crossed blades with them. Eventually, Haomaru learned about Soul Edge, which was rumored to be the most powerful sword. In the time of his birth, he had never heard of such a sword, but ......?
"The one who holds the Soul Edge is the strongest swordsman in the world, who did not exist in the age in which you lived. But you may be able to cut it to the heart's content. ......"
Again that voice echoes in my mind.
"You talk of your own accord. I will not be used by an unknown entity like you! "
Haomaru immediately spat out, but on the other hand, he couldn't suppress his own bloodlust at the thought of a mortal encounter with the strongest swordsman in this time of turmoil. ......!
So, for some reason, it is set in a time slip more than 200 years ago. A universal theory of time slips.
Putting aside the details, I'm just happy to be able to use the Haohmaru in "SOULCALIBUR VI".
Let's aim for victory by using Haomaru's unique systems such as " Rage Apex," " Rage Explosion," and " Isshin," all of which are familiar to the Samuspi series!
I didn't realize that the 14-round slash from "Samurai Shodown: Descending Amakusa" and "Samurai Shodown: Tenkaichi Kenkakuden" were implemented...!
