Soul Calibur 6 update Version 1.4 now available; Character Creation Set B coming May 16 including cat accessories, classic costumes and music

Get those new default colors... unless you play 2B or Geralt

Soul Calibur 6 has been out for over six months now and has been seeing a fairly consistent amount of updates come to the title in the form of new characters, balance changes and customizable options among other additions.

Bandai Namco has revealed that update Version 1.4 is now available to download for Soul Calibur 6 players across all platforms that includes free new costume pieces, gameplay tweaks, alternate default colors and more as part of the preparation for the Character Creation Set B DLC dropping May 16.

New tuxedo and bridal creation parts have been added to SC6 with the new update though most players might be more happy about all of the previous characters receiving color 3 and 4 options at the select screen — except for Inferno, Geralt and 2B.

The Creation Parts Set B will come packing 58 new character creation / customization parts and accessories including what appears to be one of Nightmare's alternative costumes from a previous title plus 44 pieces of background music from past Soul Caliburs.

No pricing information has been revealed for the new DLC, but Creation Parts Set A was priced at $5.99. It is also part of the Season Pass with Tira, 2B and Amy.

You can check out the official screenshots of the new costume parts and patch notes below.
