Soulcalibur VI will receive a Samurai Shodown crossover DLC

EVO 2020 has taken place last weekend in Japan and among the announcements made in the event we have seen some information about the upcoming content for Soulcalibur VI. The latest entry in the Soulcalibur series will receive a new DLC this Spring, and it seems that SNK and Bandai Namco have made an agreement so we can see Haohmaru fighting in Soulcalibur VI.

If you are into weapon fighting games you probably know already that Soulcalibur and Samurai Shodown are two of the most iconic series in the genre. They feature different gameplay styles, with one of the major differences between them being that Soulcalibur is in 3D and Samurai Shodown is in 2D. The reboot of the classic Samurai Shodown, also known as Samurai Spirits, was launched last summer and since then it has delighted the fans of the genre. The samurai Haohmaru is one of the most recognizable characters in SNK's fighting franchise and also a player's favorite.

The crossover was announced earlier but the first gameplay footage was shown with the vídeo above, in which you can see Haohmaru fighting against Mitsurugi, one of the multiple fighters available in Soulcalibur 6.

Although the specific release date for the DLC has not been revealed, it is expected to be available in Spring 2020. Haohmaru is the second character included in the Season Pass 2 of Soulcalibur VI. The first character included in the pass is Hildegard von Krone and she has been available for a while already. Soulcalibur 6 Season Pass 2 includes another two characters that will be released in the future.
