Since Soul Calibur 6's initial announcement earlier this month, we've been seeing a steady stream of information regarding the highly anticipated return of the classic weapons-based fighter. Today, we have some insight from one of the developers.

In a new Developer Diary video from Bandai Namco, producer Motohiro Okubo shared more details on Sophitia -- one of the game's first characters. The diary entry isn't long, but we do get some more gameplay footage of her as well as new info.

Sophitia is from Athens and fights with a sword and shield, as we know. In SC6, she is actually younger than she was back in Soul Calibur 4.

Okubo explains that the way she fights is representative of the series as whole, as her style is orthodox and welcoming to all skill levels. This makes her highly recommended, even for beginner players.

He notes that Sophitia and Mitsurugi were actually the first two characters designed for SC6. They were used as a foundation, and from there the team went on to create other characters.

Soul Calibur 6 is due out sometime in 2018.
