Samurai Shodown’s Haohmaru Announced for Soulcalibur VI Season Pass 2

Bandai Namco has shown off a new trailer releasing some information about the second season pass for the highly-regarded Soulcalibur VI. The series is no stranger to special guests, and the first of four future characters was unveiled to be the iconic Haohmaru from Samurai Shodown. Character creation DLC will also be released, and that alone will be interesting to see. Before, people loved using character creation tools as a way to try and replicate prior guest characters – like trying in vain to make Link in future games after his GC appearance in Soulcalibur II.

Creation tools allow for a game to have a much longer shelf life – and that usually does allow a game to sell more in the long haul. With Haohmaru, you wind up with the signature character from the first major 2D weapon-based fighting game franchise joining the roster of the first major 3D weapon-based fighting game. There isn’t a set release date for the season pass, or a straggered release date on the extra content – but we should know soon enough.
