Hilde will be the first character for Season 2! No release date yet.



Also every character will be getting new moves:



Surprised to see Hilde coming back, wasn't so sure if she would make it but I'm SO happy Her redesign is great and she looks like royalty!

SC6 will also be at Evo Japan in January so I'm sure the next character will be shown there, which will probably be Haohmaru from Samurai Shodown. I'm feeling more confident that we will be getting Setsuka and Yunseong afterwards, not sure which order they will be released. When Season 1 was datamined Cassandra was listed before Amy, but she ended up being released after so who knows.

Lots of new stuff highlighted in this new trailer. Season 2 will come on the 25th of November, Hilde will be released on the 26th of November. Her SCIV 1P is coming for free as CAS parts. Every character is getting a lot more new moves than we thought. We're getting a new UI!!! Also more stages are coming, one new stage is that daytime version of the forest that was shown before, another is a boring endless training stage and 4 more afterwards. I think some of them will be variants of existing stages. Also some new CAS parts, but honestly a lot of them look pretty lame...

Thank god for the stages! SoulCalibur VI is extremely lacking in this aspect, and since it's a reboot it's a shame that so many classic stages were left out...

Well the new DLC will be releasing here in Canada on November 26, 2019. Looking forward to it. Its interesting that they chose to bring Hilde back when there were more calls by the fans to have Setsuka back. I remember there was a lot of backlash against Hilde by the fans with her being too unbalanced in Soul Calibur 4. I personally didn't see the issue; If anything, Ivy is a hell of a lot more unbalanced compared to Hilde.

I am loving her new look. She is adequately armored but still open for movement.

Setsuka and either of the Korean guys are probably coming right after Haohmaru so maybe it's a "best for last" kind of thing? Lol.

I'm pleasantly surprised by Hilde's redesign.

I like her new face and hair!

The boob-shaped Armor is ridiculous though 😂😅

Meh, we will chalk that up to fantasy and aesthetics . I mean, considering that this is Namco, we should be happy that they didn't take the opportunity to go full bikini armor .

Downloaded the Season 2 version of the game, the Character Creation and Hilde DLCs today and I am somewhat satisfied with what Namco has given us.

Lets start with Hilde and the new added moves for various characters:

- Hilde had the potential for becoming as broken as she was in Soul Calibur 4 had it not been the addition of new moves for another Soul Calibur 6 character (who I'll get to momentarily.) She has excellent Mid to Short-ranged attacks and very devastating long ranged heavy attacks. If timed right, you can easily win a fight with four heavy attack moves. The downside to Hilde is that she has a slow recovery time between moves; Almost on par with Nightmare. New players can be easily taken off-guard but for the veterans (especially those who main as Nightmare,) you can easily lul someone into believing that they have an opening for an attack and then you can counter with heavy hitting moves.

Moving onto new character moves:

- With the addition of new moves, Groh has become even more formidable; To the point where he could easily be OP. His Steed of the Night Powerup has gotten additional moves, making him just as flightly as Cervantes without the lag, which makes him more dangerous. The upside is the fact that Steed of the Night can only be used during Soul Charge. However, given that this is Groh, that won't be an issue at all.

Finally we come the new Character Creation DLC:

- Kind of a downer that we only have four new set of costume ensembles and two of them belong to Hilde. That only leaves two costume sets for male characters. Seems kinda imbalanced but I am sure this will all change once new DLCs with male characters arrive. On an important note, we FINALLY have proper armor for female characters! God damn, this has been a long way coming. Hilde's Armor is so versatile that it can easily be incorporated into a lot of clothing sets, which is very much appreciated given that what was available, your female characters looked either really clunky, drab, boring but reasonably functional as a fighter or they looked really cool but also seemed like they belong at a Halloween party rather than a sword duel.

How one of my female character looks in a full classic Hilde Armor set:



Please bear in mind that I am advocating the need to change all the female characters in the game into full armor clad lancers so please refrain from commenting with a statement like "what? you want to put all female characters in burkas?" Far from it actually. Its just would be nice to see more female outfits that are a cool looking and relatively functional medium between a Burka and metal thong.

Other than that, the new layout looks amazing, the new online ranking system is very well welcomed and the new stages are wonderful addition.

P.S. Regarding Hilde's story; You will find out as to why Hilde and Siegfried never became a thing. Unfortunately... It happened due to a very uncomfortable reality of the Medieval times *cue banjo music.*
