Things are getting a little spooky here

Update: The full balance changes are now available in English as well. They can be found here, and we've added some of the most impactful ones to the story below.

Soul Calibur 6 is now almost completely through its second season of content with only on more character to go, but the nearing two-year-old fighting game still has more to come if the new update is anything to go by.

Bandai Namco has now released the patch notes for SC6's new Version 2.25 update which features balance changes, system adjustments and more.

Unfortunately, the current English version of the patch note page appears to be missing its link to the actual balance changes for individual characters.

They are on the Japanese site, however, so we can see that Mitsurugi, Seong Mi-Na, Taki, Maxi, Voldo, Sophitia, Siegfried, Ivy, Kilik, Xianghua, Yoshimitsu, Nightmare, Astaroth, Cervantes, Raphael, Talim, Tira, Zasalamel, Groh, Azwel, Geralt, 2B, Inferno, Amy, Cassandra, Hilde, Haohmaru and Setsuka have all received a myriad of adjustments — most of which seem to be either small buffs or fixes.

On a lighter note, the developers have also added a Jack-O'-Lantern character customization piece as we approach Halloween once again.

Bandai Namco has also made a small change to the game's lobby system which will stop spectators from unexpectedly getting locked out of viewing matches.

The Version 2.25 update is scheduled to launch today, September 10, across all platforms, so it should be available soon if it isn't already. You can check out the patch notes below sans balance changes which we'll update the story with once they've become available.

Soul Calibur 6 Version 2.25 Patch Notes

Creation Parts Added

The following equipment will be added and available to all players:
• Jack-O'-Lantern

Miscellaneous Added / Adjusted

Casual Match mode has been updated so that "WAITING" does not become "READY" until players and spectators return to the lobby. This adjustment was made to reduce cases in which some spectators could not join the next match.

This change does not apply to matches interrupted due to network errors or lost connections.

An issue was fixed in which the color marker shown when changing the color of the Yasha Undergarment in Character Creation mode was different from the actual color of the item.

An issue was fixed in which equipping Asuka's Shirt, Asuka's Gloves, and Tiger Lily Stockings on certain characters in Character Creation mode would result in an unexpected facial expression.

Gameplay Adjustments

Some text errors have been fixed.

Stability has been improved for certain actions, etc.

Omissions in the patch notes for Ver. 2.20

The following changes were mistakenly left out of the patch notes released on 8/3/2020.

Changes were made to what is displayed on the offline versus screen. A photo card will be displayed on the screen for custom characters created in Character Creation mode. For online battles, only your character card will be displayed.

The "Young Tactician" voice for male characters and "Mysterious and Boyish" voice for female characters were added as part of DLC12.

We will continue to check for and address any unexpected issues that may occur. Should any issues arise, we kindly ask for your patience as we work to fix them. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but we thank you for your understanding.
