Leaked Build Of Soulcalibur VI Shows Playable Cervantes, Raphael

Soulcalibur VI has been revealing characters and story modes at a steady clip, but some of its content is still under wraps. However, it looks like a recent fighting game tournament in Melbourne, Australia is showcasing two characters who haven't been officially revealed.

Images and gameplay of the two characters in their SCVI forms have popped up on gaming forum Resetera, and while screens alone can be doctored, it's much more difficult to make up fake gameplay. While the Youtube upload of the gameplay has already been taken down, the backup video on Japanese video site Bilibili is still up, and the footage looks fairly legitimate.

The characters are sporting looks entirely different from their SCV days, which also means this is likely not a simply mod adding the characters into the new game. You can even see the using some of SCVI's new tricks like the Reversal Edge. Cervantes is still rocking his signature dual swords, and can still teleport and perform his signature Geo De Ray spin move. Raphael also retains his fencing style, including his dodge-into-attack routines.

Insomniac today showed off a photo mode for the soon-to-release Spider-Man game on PS4. In a video that was part of Insomniac’s tweet (viewable below), you can see the flexibility on offer in the new mode, which allows quick freeze frames, rotations, filters, and plenty more; for enterprising fans, it seems like the mode would offer more than enough options to craft your very own Spidey comic book.

Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes is on its way to an exclusive launch on the Switch, and we now know when to expect it. Previously announced for a 2018 release, a tweet from Nintendo today revealed that the quirky hero’s new adventure will begin on January 18, 2019.

The new game from Grasshopper Manufacture (directed by Suda51) sees the titular hero drawn into a corrupted video game console, leading to what sounds like a surreal adventure through eerily familiar video game landscapes as Travis aims to squash bugs in the code. The game is also set to include cooperative play with an additional player.
