Soulcalibur VI Nightmare character breakdown

A symbol of the "dark" element.

Soulcalibur VI

Bandai Namco has released a character breakdown video for Nightmare in Soulcalibur VI featuring commentary from producer Motohiro Okubo.

Here is the full transcript from Okubo:

This next character is the one you’ve been waiting for. The fan favorite Nightmare. Soulcalibur features “light” and “dark” elements and unsurprisingly Nightmare is a character who symbolizes the “dark” element. He’s an incredibly important character for the series. And of course there’s his weapon the Soul Edge I hope that all of you out there are getting excited to see how he’ll play and what his moves will be like this time around. I myself actually really like Nightmare. From a producer’s point of view we have held this game to absurdly high standards in developing the specials, the Critical Edge, etc. to the point of being too particular, even. At any rate, I think that you’ll understand what I mean when you see his. I just want to say that this game has ended up being absurdly cool. I definitely encourage you all to pick it up and give it a shot.

Soulcalibur VI is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam in 2018.
