Equipped with his steel and silver swords, as well as an arsenal of Signs, Geralt will join confirmed Soul Calibur fighters Mitsurugi, Nightmare, Kilik, Ivy, Xianghua, Zasalamel, and Sophitia -- not to mention brand-new character Groh -- in the series well-known weapons-based combat. Additionally, The Witcher's Kaer Morhen will be included as a new stage.
The reveal trailer shows the White Wolf in action, and from the looks of it, CD Projekt Red's hero is going to fit in SCVI's other fighter just fine.
