Cassandra Finally Returns to the Stage of History in Soulcalibur VI

Sophitia’s younger sister Cassandra is finally making a full and proper return to the series as part of Soulcalibur VI’s Season Pass. As those who played earlier Soulcalibur games might recall, Cassandra fights in the Athenian style with a short-sword and shield. However, Cassandra and Sophitia behave very differently on the battlefield. Where Sophitia is quick and efficient with her movements, Cassandra is boisterous and dramatic. Both are good, but extra points go to the warrior who can turn her shield into a projectile weapon.

Cassandra and her extra story mission are available in Soulcalibur VI starting today, either as a standalone purchase or as part of the game’s first season pass. SoulCalibur VI is also getting a second season pass, which will include the likes of SNK’s Haohmaru from Samurai Showdown. There’s no release date on that yet, but it should be coming pretty soon.

Soulcalibur VI is available now for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. See our review for a full breakdown of what this sixth entry in the franchise brings to the fighting game table.
