Just yesterday, Bandai Namco unveiled four new characters in Soul Calibur 6. Nightmare, Xianghua, Kilik, and Groh have all entered the battle.

Of the four fighters, one is a brand new character to the series while the other three are returning. Groh is an interesting newcomer with a dual blade as his weapon of choice.

Game Informer was able to get time in with the latest version of Soul Calibur 6 and has released 30 minutes of gameplay footage featuring the new warriors.

The beginning portion of the video provides more information on the upcoming fighter. We learn that Groh is an assassin, and apparently has some cocky lines of dialogue when he enters the ring.

We see that as characters battle, they progressively lose armor. Groh, for example, will lose his eye patch and Xianghua's outerwear breaks off.

Additionally, a new mechanic called Soul Clash is shown. This puts the players in a rock-paper-scissors situation where kicks beat vertical strikes, vertical beats horizontal, and horizontal beats kicks.

If a player does not choose one option, they will take a hit.

Of course, the main attraction here is the footage of the four new characters. Check it out after the jump.
