Soul Calibur VI has added another familiar face to its ever-expanding lineup in the shape of the blade-wielding Mitsurugi. 

The swordsman's return probably isn't all that of a shocker. After all, Mitsurugi appeared in the original Soul Blade back in 1996 and has gone on to become a series staple and fan-favourite. Not having him in a Soul Calibur game would be akin to Paul Phoenix not appearing in the next Tekken. 

Check out Mitsurugi in action below. Soul Calibur VI is currently in development for PS4, PC, and Xbox One and will launch later this year.
