has released the latest character reveal trailer for Soul
Calibur VI. "You shall be sacrificed for the human race!" Azwel, Leader of Humanity, wields the powerful weapon Palindrome which
grants him the ability to manifest weapons out of thin air. We previously
got a glimpse of Azwel in the Libra of Soul (2nd Story Mode) trailer...
now see what he's capable of in this latest SC6 gameplay footage!
Azwel's character bio, official
artwork by the legendary Takuji Kawano, and over 30 screenshots
have been added to
the article. New details on Azwel's playstyle were also added further down.
is a man of extraordinary intelligence and a scholar in
many fields, including history, medicine, war, and art.
His studies about the history of humanity brought him to

weapon is named Palindrome, and itís a pair of gloves.
The right glove includes a fragment of Soul Edge, while
the left one has a piece of SoulCalibur. Azwel draws his
power from the memories of past battles, preserved within
those fragments. While he appears unarmed, his gloves
allow him to summon a variety of deadly weapons, which he
can use with brutal effects.
Fighting style details: Azwel can summon 3 types of weapons:
Twin Swords, Axe, and Spear & Shield. Each time he generates a weapon
for an attack, the next time he uses that specific weapon will become a
"Weapon Art" which is a more powerful version of the attack -
but this can only be used once per weapon set.
Since opponents can't see
which weapon set is being generated, alternating between the 3 weapon sets
is crucial to Azwel's playstyle. When Azwel is in Soul Charge mode,
all Weapon Arts can be used freely during his transformation. He will also
have access to a unique and devastatingly powerful Critical Edge after
The latest batch of
Soul Calibur 6 screenshots (below) shows Azwel's
"powered-up" form, hinting that he could be the final boss of
the game. However, we're speculating that both of Azwel's forms are also
playable by default (similar to Kilik) - as Azwel appears to be a normal selectable character.
After all, he is only the second "new" character to debut in Soul Calibur VI. Until we have more solid details,
