SoulCalibur VI World Tour 2020 schedule released at EVO Japan

Bandai Namco has revealed the World Tour 2020 schedule for SoulCalibur VI, along with a gameplay trailer for DLC character Haohmaru.

After the EVO Japan 2020 finals, SoulCalibur VI producer Motohiro Okubo made two announcements on-stage regarding the title’s future.

The first was a gameplay trailer for upcoming fighter Haohmaru; a special crossover character from Samurai Shodown released as part of the second season of DLC.

Many of his key traits and moves from Samurai Shodown appear to have made their way over to SoulCalibur VI, including his super move of upward strikes and a deflection counter.

No exact release date was given for Haohmaru, although he’s expected to arrive this spring.

The second announcement was the tournament line-up for this year’s SoulCalibur World Tour, which officially began with Evo Japan 2020.

The first Critical Edge event will be Final Round 2020 on 20th March, which is followed by The Mixup in France - which is the second of three Edge Master events.

Other stops on the tour include Combo Breaker 2020, CEO 2020, BAM12, VS Fighting X, Rev Major and Ultimate Fighting Arena.
