Samurai Shodown is the next game to cross-over with SoulCalibur VI

With EVO taking place over the weekend, you can expect lots of news focused on fighting games today. Bandai Namco dropped details on the season pass for Tekken 7 and wasted little time to tell us all where SoulCalibur VI will be heading next. 

First up is the news that Cassandra, the Athenian warring maiden, will be the last character to join the roster in season 1. If you’re a season pass holder then you can claim the classic fighter who originally joined the cast back with SoulCalibur 2 right this very moment. She’s perhaps not as flashy as other characters, but get the hang of her shield and this technical fighter basically turns into the female version of Captain America… with a dagger.

The big announcement came with season pass 2.

Bandai Namco have been real slick when it comes to the included cross-over characters. We’ve seen Geralt from The Witcher at launch and since then we’ve also seen 2B from NieR: Automata joining the fight. Now it’s Haohmaru from Samurai Shodown that’ll slice his way into the game. He forms part of season 2 as the guest character, though we expect another three characters to be added to the mix.


Married to a gamer and she kicks my ass at most shooters. If the game is enjoyable I'll play it, no matter the format.
