Famitsu Releases Yoshimitsu Screenshots And Battle Director Notes

Publication site Famitsu has posted up a batch of screenshots for Soul Calibur VI’s latest revealed character, Yoshimitsu, who also has a unique element apart from the Critical Edge and Soul Charge. Soul Calibur VI is set to come out sometime this year for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

Firstly, if you want to see the strange mechanical ninja in various poses wielding his Manji Sword and Fu Ma Blade, Famitsu has a handful of screenshots up for you to look over.

Thanks to Wonkey, he translated Soul Calibur VI Battle Director’s explanation of Yoshimitsu fighting style, Manji Ninjitsu, and it’s said to be something unique to him besides Critical Edge and Soul Charge.

As noted above, Yoshimitsu excels at up close and personal fights where he can perform speedy and tricky attacks. However, after certain moves, he can absorb the opponent’s soul to fill his meter gauge.

Besides Critical Edge and Soul Charge, Yoshimitsu has other special moves that consume the soul gauge, which is unique to him in Soul Calibur VI.

The Battle Director also explains that depending on how you manage this gauge/meter depends on how effective Yoshimitsu can be in a battle. In other words, he can be very devastating if used correctly.

I’m sure players who master Yoshimitsu can be a real pain to fight, but I’m sure that goes the same way with other characters, although time will tell with that. If you want to check out more screenshots or read what else Famitsu has up, you can head on over to famitsu.com.

Lastly, Bandai Namco released Yoshimitsu’s Japanese trailer (without the English voice-over), which sits over on the company’s 876TV YouTube channel. You can check out the newly posted video right here while we wait for Soul Calibur VI to drop for PC, PS4, and Xbox One sometime this year.
