Virtual Steel Takes on Real Steel in New SoulCalibur 6 Video

A new video by the SoulCalibur 6 team shows how well virtual steel compares to the real thing -- and there's a lot of research going into making the game authentic.

Ever wondered how well virtual steel fares when compared to the real thing?

The developers behind SoulCalibur 6 wanted to know the answer and decided to put it to the test. To do it properly, they sought the assistance of world-renowned fencer and Team USA Olympic Bronze Medalist, Miles Chamley-Watson.

In the video, Chamely-Watson shows off his skills against SoulCalibur 6 producer, Motohiro Okubo. And ... it's a sight to behold.

With SoulCalibur 6 nearly upon us, it will be interesting to see if all the research Bandai Namco put into the game's development pays off -- and feels real. You can check the video in the header above, and then compare the fencing here to that of the recently unveiled Raphael here

If you haven't already, you can pre-order SoulCalibur 6 for your PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and on Amazon, Gamestop, and Steam

The next iteration of the storied fighting game franchise is set to release on October 19.
