Announced back in October, fans have patiently waited for news on her release. While all we have is a short gameplay video, it appears that Bandai Namco have done a good job replicating her fighting style from NieR: Automata. She also comes with an alternate costume, a new stage, and some nice background music.
Soulcalibur VI is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. 2B can be purchased individually or as part of the $29.99 Season Pass.
