Bandai Namco has revealed Soul Calibur 6's official release date today at E3 2018. The latest entry in the 3D weapons-based fighter is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 19th, 2018.

Along with a release date, a new story mode trailer for Soul Calibur 6 was unveiled. In it, we see several of the currently announced characters doing battle as a search for Soul Edge unfolds.

The trailer opens with a look at Siegfried grabbing a hold of the Soul Edge and harnessing its power. We go on to see battles between Mitsurugi and Groh, Ivy and Xianghua, and more.

An interesting menu with character names is shown that appears to be the way players will experience the story. Progress for each character and the timeline of their stories is featured here, meaning we'll likely be able to piece together the full tale with each character individually.

A quick look at story mode art pieces can also be seen here. In these stills, we see other characters such as Cervantes, though we're unsure if this confirms that he'll be a part of the playable roster.

You can check out the trailer below.
