Soulcalibur VI may have had a bumpy start with its first unveiling of season pass DLC, but it they seem to have found their footing with the announcement and release of Nier: Automata’s 2B. Now the character is available for season pass holders and individual buyers alike to to the battle android for a spin.
If you have no interest in the other season pass characters who have yet to be detailed, you can pick 2B up for $5.99 on her own. She uses a fighting style reminiscent of the game’s katana weapon, mostly focusing on that but also occasionally bringing out her fist weapons as well. The Soulcalibur subreddit has been going back and forth since her release trying to decide if she is overpowered or not.
For her super, 2B uses the pod’s charge attacks to spear the enemy from the ground. She also has a two-player skin which Nier director Yoko Taro has named 2P, giving her a different skin color and a white dress. Nier: Automata also recently got a Game of the Yorha edition announced with a special message from Taro alongside it.
Soulcalibur VI is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
