Soulcalibur VI

Soulcalibur VI Box Art

This game was released on October 19, 2018 and is no longer available to pre-order. Any incentives that were offered are listed below.

Soulcalibur VI is a fighting game developed by Project Soul and published by Bandai Namco. It is a reboot of the series that takes place in the 16th century and retells the events of the original Soulcalibur. Unreal Engine 4 is utilized for the first time in the franchise, promising 4K visuals with beautiful 3D character models and stages.

The game includes a number of new and returning fighters, as well as guest character Geralt of Rivia from the Witcher series. There are some changes to the gameplay, most notably the introduction of Reversal Edge: a mechanic which, when timed right, allows the player to execute a counter-attack with one button press.

Pre-order Bonuses

While there are no bonus DLC to be had by pre-ordering Soulcalibur VI, we spotted some special offers from retailers:

  • GameStop: exclusive Ivy Valentine Figpin for PowerUp Rewards members.
  • Bandai Namco Store: exclusive silver variant of the Ivy Valentine Figpin and 3x reward points.
  • Best Buy: exclusive 3.5″ tall Talim figurine.
  • Newegg: $10 discount when added to cart.

As usual, the physical bonuses are available while supplies last.

There also are two special editions detailed below.

Deluxe Edition ($99.99)

Soulcalibur VI - Deluxe Edition

The digital version of this edition lacks all the physical goodies, but is in turn $10 cheaper.

    Here’s some additional information:

    – The official Bandai Namco Store is offering an exclusive silver version of the Ivy Figpin as a pre-order bonus, but it is unclear whether this is only for the Collector’s Edition or the other editions, too.

    – The free copy of Destiny 2 at Best Buy is also available with seemingly any other PS4 or XB1 game that costs $29.99 or more right now, but at least for me, the free Destiny 2 was only available for store pickup, not shipping. Meanwhile, the Talim figurine was shipping only, no store pickup.

    – Digital pre-orders on the PSN store get a rather simple PS4 theme (you can find previews on YouTube).

    – All of the info that I have found so far indicates that the Collector’s Edition does NOT include the Season Pass. Is the listing here an error or has Bandai Namco indicated otherwise?

      Sorry about that. You’re right, the American Collector’s Edition does not come with the Season Pass.

    I just checked with Best Buy this Saturday and they said they were out-of-stock company-wide of the pre-order bonuses. Gamestop it is then!

    I pre-ordered the standard edition Soul Calibur 6 at namco’s website back in July when I finally got my copy I did not receive a silver Ivy pin! Honestly I felt cheated.
