It’s official, Yoshimitsu is the next character returning for battle in SoulCalibur VI. A long time combatant appearing since the first game in the series, this Yoshimitsu is actually an ancestor of the Yoshimitsu that appears in the Tekken series.
In the Bandai Namco universe, those who given the name Yoshimitsu are consistently portrayed as the leader of the honorable Manji Clan, a practitioner of ninjutsu, and a master swordsman who wield the Yoshimitsu sword and have a mechanical prosthetic arm. This secret line of succession makes “Yoshimitsu” appear immortal to outsiders.
By SoulCalibur V, a new successor has taken over the mantle of Yoshimitsu after the previous master was ritually executed and he is ready for action.
SoulCalibur VI will release sometime in 2018 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
