Soulcalibur VI adds Maxi

The Dandy of the Seas joins the fray.

Soulcalibur VI

Maxi, who first appeared in Soulcalibur, will be playable in Soulcalibur VI, Bandai Namco announced.

Here is an overview of the character, via Bandai Namco Europe:

Maxi’s father had worked in the Ryukyu Kingdom as a merchant. Though fortunate enough to experience different cultures from his trade, he felt tied down by his job. On his deathbed, he told Maxi to go out and see the world. Deciding to live by these words, Maxi set out to seek total freedom. He found this out at sea where he became a pirate to see the world his father couldn’t.

Maxi’s weapon is a nunchaku which is extremely difficult to wield. It will give a rain of pain to the opponent but only if you know how to handle it!

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