Is Cervantes hot? That’s the question I’ve been grappling with since watching the video reveal of Soulcalibur 6’s latest returning character. He’s a cursed, undead pirate with an unquenchable thirst for souls, so he’s a bad dude, but he’s also shirtless and jacked. Murder and mayhem have done wonders for his physique.
The old sea dog fights with a longsword and a dagger that also has a pistol “hidden” in its hilt. I’d argue that it’s more of a shortsword and that the pistol isn’t so much hidden as it is sitting there in plain sight. Regardless, it looks like a nifty piece of kit.
In Soulcalibur 5, Cervantes was mortal again after escaping the influence of the Soul Edge, everyone’s favourite soul-stealing sword, but it looks like he’s back to his old tricks again, hunting for the blade and looking distinctly not alive. C’mon Cervantes, sort your life out.
Soulcalibur 6 is due out on October 19, marking its first appearance on PC.
