ENTER EVERYONE’S FAVORITE NINJA
TAKI (NOT NARUTO) RETURNS IN SOULCALIBUR VI
The next SoulCalibur game has been established to be a slightly changed remake of previous installments. That being said, most of the roster should be familiar to long time fans. Just because we know who (most likely) is in the game does not mean we can’t enjoy seeing characters in updated graphics. Case in point, the other sex icon of the SoulCalibur franchise, Taki.
Looks aside, Taki returns with all her deadly ninja tools to slay her foes. She mostly switches between her two katanas, although it seems that she can fire chakra blasts as well (granted that was only during soul charge attacks). The updated graphics gave her more detail as you can see various kanji glow up all over her body suit. We can only assume the kanji are sealing techniques. Taki even returns with an oni mask, furthering the emphasis on wanting to see old characters with updated graphics.
Taki is a central character in the SoulCalibur lore, with her listed as defeating Soul Edge along with Sophitia, so it was a given that she’d return. It’s still great to see her confirmed and with Sophitia also confirmed, the details of their partnership may be fully divulged as well. Besides Sophitia and Taki, the only other key fighter of the early lore is Siegfried.
With Taki returning, the current roster is as follows:
