Hopefully this isnt true as this one of my friends favourite characters

She will of course inherit her moveset, so there is no problem.

EVO-OM3GA2541d ago

I dont think she will inherit all her movesets maybe a few and have a completely new set original to her.

It's Xianghua not Xianguha

I like how Namco is taking the Street Fighter 3 approach, replace most of the big characters and replace them with new characters. Hopefully in Soul Caliber 6 They will have both SC5 characters and SC2-4 characters.

Probably just a typo since only 1 letter is out of place.

I hope they actually stick with their guns , and only keep those they've allowed in . Especially if they plan on replacing most fighting styles with equivalents .

I know saying that that i could still loose a favorite , and risk its replacement not being as cool .

Anyway it wouldnt be the first time SC replace characters (like Maxi and Astaroth) , just that it didnt stick for very long .

Maybe i'm wrong but i feel that among the 5 most known fighting franchise , SC is the only one that could sell the idea of a mostly new cast , as already seen with the transition from Edge to Calibur .

Alas, she was a favorite of mine. Hopefully her daughter will be fun to play as.

She was becoming redundant, good riddance and hello fresh character

I wonder who is the father? jk

Redempteur2541d ago

i'd be surprised if it's not killik

StifflerK2541d ago

Wow , I'm surprised.

As the SC5 is set 17yrs later (?) I just assumed Namco would have replaced the 'older characters'....

I guess there's no telling who else made the final cut, we'll just have to wait and see.
