Update: The results are in! You can check them out after the jump.

Earlier: Soul Calibur 6's story will be taking place between the original Soul Calibur and Soul Calibur 2 meaning that most of the original cast will be returning after Soul Calibur 5 removed and replaced many of the series' iconic characters.

The latest E3 build of the game showed off a character select screen with 23 available spaces, not including random select, with only 13 characters announced and selectable meaning that there are likely more than 10 characters left to be announced plus more if we include the season pass.

10 of the announced characters are from the early titles while Grøh is an entirely new addition to the roster, Zasalamel returns after appearing in Soul Calibur 3 and 4, and Geralt of Rivia makes his way to the world of Soul Calibur as a guest character from the Witcher series.

The current returning cast from the first games includes series staples Mitsurugi, Taki, Sophitia, Ivy, Xainghua, Nightmare, Siegfried, Kilik, Maxi and Yoshimitsu though others appear to have been leaked by the ESRB recently.

As for the setting and timeframe of the game, the story will go back as far as 1583 A.D. which is actually a year before the events of Soul Edge/ Soul Blade, so we might see characters or references included from that game carry over as well. It will conclude in 1590 A.D. just before the start of the events of Soul Calibur 2.

Below we'll take a look at the characters from Soul Calibur 2 that are still not announced for Soul Calibur 6, and you can find the Soul Blade and original Soul Calibur characters after the jump. Be sure to vote in our poll for which of those characters you'd like to see make a return.
