Soul Calibur 6 will be releasing on October 19, 2018 — that's this Friday! The game will come with 21 characters as part of the base roster, but Tira will also be available as a day one DLC fighter.

Earlier today, Bandai Namco released a feature trailer that shows us what's packaged with the game — which is the English version of a previously released Japanese trailer. There are numerous single player modes that fans will certainly have fun with.

The game's story mode is being called "Soul Chronicle" beginning after the original Soul Blade title and leading up to the start of where Soul Calibur 3 would take off. This appears to be highlighting the struggle of Kilik and Grøh against Azwel, who very likely is the final boss.

Of course there will also be an arcade mode while the Libra of Soul appears to be a separate story mode that has you playing as a custom made character. This mode will feature some RPG elements to level up your characters, and head down branching story paths making new allies and enemies along the way.

Speaking of customization, Soul Calibur 6 features hundreds of options to make your creations look exactly how you want them to with a variety of races to choose from — including skeletons and lizard men — plus all of the tattoos, stickers, hairstyles, monocles, wings and armor one can handle. We also know that Geralt's weapon style will be available to use on custom characters — a first for guest characters in the series.

This trailer also reveals that along with ranked online matches, Soul Calibur 6's Casual Match option will work as the game's lobby system where you can battle multiple players in a single room. An extensive museum will also be included in the game where you can check out the lore of characters and weapons, view concept art and more. You can view the full trailer after the jump.
