2B from Nier: Automata has been revealed as a DLC guest character for Soul Calibur 6. Nier: Automata was developed by Platinum Games and published by Square Enix.

She is the second character that appears to be for the season pass after Tira. 2B is also the second guest character to join the fight after Geralt of Rivia from the Witcher series.

In addition to this, there appears to be a new stage coming to Soul Calibur as evident by the buildings in the background that wouldn't really fit in a 1586 A.D. setting. With any new fighter comes a set of new parts for customization.

YoRHa No.2 Type B is an android that was created to battle against machine enemies that have invaded the planet. Like the Star Wars guest characters from Soul Calibur 4, her futuristic appearance clashes with the rest of the cast.

During gameplay, 2B appears to have access to many multiple hitting attacks. She appears to have access to a counter type move where she evades an incoming attack with several teleports before hitting back.

Notably, she also pulls out a futuristic weapon that she can shoot opponents with. Overall, she appears to have various up close options that are quick, but has some reach with certain attacks.
