Soul Calibur 6 producer says that it is his dream for the upcoming game to have something similar to the Tekken World Tour

Kayane also presses about an online beta, demo, in-game frame data, and 2B as a guest character

Soul Calibur 6 will be releasing on October 19, 2018. The announced roster so far consists of Astaroth, Zasalamel, Grøh, Yoshimitsu, Ivy, Siegfried, Nightmare, Sophitia, Seong Mi-na, Taki, Kilik, Talim, Maxi, Xianghua, Voldo, and Mitsurugi. Geralt of Rivia will be the guest character from The Witcher upon launch.

Okubo-san — producer of Soul Calibur 6 — recently sat down for an interview with Kayane at EVO 2018. While the Soul Calibur 6 team has been adamant that they want to create something that's "fun and engaging" rather than making an Esports game, Okubo-san seemed hopeful that it will receive the same type of support that Tekken 7 has — the decision is ultimately up to Bandai Namco based on fan support.

"I actually watched the Tekken World Tour and I really enjoyed it," said Okubo-san. "I really hope that Soul Calibur 6 [has] something similar too. That is my dream."

Kayane also asked about the possibility regarding an online beta and demo. Suspiciously, Okubo-san stated that this is something that he cannot answer. Very interesting.

She would then go on to press about the subject of in-game frame data. As of right now, this is not a feature that is in the game. While this seems to be as a result of company policy, we could see something that gets added if there's enough push for it.

As there is currently only one guest character announced, Kayane asked about the possibility of 2B from Nier: Automata. Okubo-san confirmed that Geralt of Rivia was the only guest character at launch, but there appeared to be some sort of hint a guest appearing as part of the season 1 pass.
