If you recall correctly, you’d know that Hilde was covered up from head to toe in her base outfit in Soul Calibur V. Well, Bandai Namco has taken things to another level with Soul Calibur VI and seems to be embracing special attire by flaunting Hilde off in oppai plated armor.
I’m sure ResetEra or some other forum board is losing their mind over Hilde’s new mound protected armor, which is good on Bandai Namco for sticking to their guns.
With that said, Hilde’s armor change from Soul Calibur V to Soul Calibur VI is as subtle as stepping on a sharp object. In other words, the changes are more than noticeable.
However, I’ll let you be the judge and do research on the matter to see if you can spot changes from the previous game and this edition of the royal highness:
As for Hilde’s fighting style, folks can expect to do a lot of close to mid-range attacks, along with grappling moves to help facilitate an aggressive-like playstyle.
We can also see charge attacks and other combos present in the video as well as attacks that call for alternating between her spear and sword — mirroring that of her move set from Soul Calibur V.
Sadly, Bandai Namco has not announced when Hilde will become playable. The good news is that she’s slated to appear as a second season DLC character, so there’s that.
We also know that Haohmaru from Samurai Showdown will join the roster as part of the second season DLC.
