Bandai Namco released a brand new trailer for Soul Calibur 6 this morning. In it, we see four characters revealed as playable.

Series legacy fighters Nightmare, Kilik, and Xianghua all join the battle. In addition to this, the game's first newcomer, Groh, makes a debut.

The trailer gives us a look at what these fighters can do in battle. Starting with Nightmare, the large, armored combatant still fights with his giant sword in hand.

Utilizing heavy slashes to trample foes, Nightmare also comes equipped with a super move that sees him riding a ghostly horse and charging at the opponent.

A much lighter and more mobile character than Nightmare, Xianghua uses graceful sword strikes and kicks to secure victory.

Her weapon of choice is the Jian, a Chinese sword, and her super sends the opponent up into the air, slashes them several times, and finishes with a cinematic slice that pauses for a second before the opponent feels the effect of it.

Soul Cailbur 6's first original fighter, Groh, fights with a long dual blade that can separate into two smaller ones. He moves fairly quickly, and appears to have a powered up state in which his hair changes color and he removes his eye patch.

Lastly, we see the return of Kilik -- Soul Calibur's staff wielder. He has fast strikes that allow him to fight up close, as well as slower moving attacks that have much more range on them.

At the end of the trailer, we see a quick teaser of what appears to be Kilik possessed by Soul Edge. He performs a large, cinematic super attack, meaning this will likely be a powerful transformation that the character can use in battle.

Below you will find both the English and Japanese versions of the trailer.
