Taki joins the fight

Taki's trailer was first discovered by Japanese video streaming site Nico Nico. Bandai Namco Entertainment officially streamed her gameplay trailer and featured her classic red ninja outfit with her two kodachi, Rekki-Maru and Mekki-Maru.

Based on the gameplay trailer, Taki uses her speed and training as a ninja to her advantage as she can outmaneuver her opponents' close range or from a distance.

She can unleash fast chained-attacks for devastating combos and joggles, and perform ninjutsu moves to create massive damage.

Taki will join other characters in the sequel which include Sophitia, Seigfried, Mitsurugi, Ivy, Xianghua, Zasalamel, Kilik, Groh, Nightmare, and Geralt of Rivia from "The Witcher" series.

"The Witcher" game director Borys Pugacz Muraszkiewicz stated in a previous interview that Geralt's fighting style in "Soul Calibur 6" will be similar to the games, combining swordplay with the use fo alchemy and Witcher signs.
