Bandai Namco Games has unsheathed a new Soul Calibur VI trailer for your consumption, this time scrutinising main antagonist Nightmare under the microscope.

Nightmare is part of the furniture as far as Soul Calibur goes, having first appeared in the original Soul Edge and going on to show up in all subsequent games in the sword-slashing franchise. 

Nightmare is able to possess other characters, and in the past has typically favoured Siegfried or Inferno; however, Soul Calibur V saw him as a new being entirely, going by the alias Graf Dumas in an attempt to take over the world.

Check out the new trailer below to find out how Nightmare is shaping up in his latest incarnation. Soul Calibur VI is scheduled for release on PS4, PC, and Xbox One at some point this year.
