Geralt of Rivia has been confirmed as the guest character for Bandai Namco’s SoulCalibur VI.

We knew it was coming for a while, after anonymous sources leaked to LPVG about Geralt’s inclusion. However, it is nice to have an actual trailer that shows off his skills and his themed stage, Kaer Morhen, home of the Witchers.

Geralt will have access to many of his tools from the games, including potions and magic, giving him an interesting equipment-focused slant on Soulcalibur’s usual flow of combat. Also blimey that codpiece.

Soulcalibur VI will launch sometime this year for PS4, Xbox One and, for the first time in the series, PC.

Joe is LPVG’s resident hardware nerd. If it’s overpriced and has gaudy RGB lighting, he’s probably drooling over it. He loves platformers, MMOs, RPGs, hack ‘n slashers and FPS, with his favourite games being Mirror’s Edge, Left 4 Dead, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Oblivion and Dead Space. Don’t ask him about his unhealthily large Monsters Inc memorabilia collection. Seriously, just don’t ask…
