Updated: Bandai Namco has edited their blog post to specify that Hwang is the final character of Season Pass 2. The original text stated that he was the final DLC character joining the game, leading many to believe there would be no further DLC characters.

Earlier: During the Soul Calibur Online Challenge EU West finals this past weekend, Bandai Namco unveiled the next fighter to join Soul Calibur 6. Hwang makes his grand return after 15 years of dormancy as the next Soul Calibur 6 DLC character and conclusion to Season Pass 2.

With the big reveal came a gameplay trailer that showcased several new moves and techniques for the legacy fighter. Bandai Namco followed up this morning with an interesting bit of information, however. Hwang is not only the final character in Season Pass 2, but he acts as the last DLC character for Soul Calibur 6.

The official Bandai Namco website released a quick blog post telling of Hwang's return.

"Hwang the Korean swordsman will make his return into the fight in SOULCALIBUR VI starting December 2 after his last official appearance in 2005’s SOULCALIBUR III," Bandai Namco wrote. "Fast, agile, precise, he defeats his enemies in style with combos of kicks and swirling sword attacks."

In addition to this, the blog also clearly states that "Hwang will be the last DLC character of SOULCALIBUR VI."

Soul Calibur 6 has seen eight DLC characters join the game since its initial launch back in 2018. The first season of characters brought Tira, guest fighter 2B, Amy, and Cassandra into the fold.

Here in Season 2, fans gained access to Hilde, Samurai Shodown's own Haohmaru, Setsuka, and finally Hwang.

If you're looking to play as Hwang in Soul Calibur 6 when he launches on December 2, you can do so by picking up Season Pass 2. The pass will run you $33.99 USD, and will include all four of the aforementioned Season 2 characters, as well as several customization item packs and additional music.

Hwang can also be purchased individually for $5.99, if you prefer.
