SoulCalibur VI: NieR Automata’s 2B Gets A Ton Of New In-Game Screenshots (GALLERY)
Just a few days ago, Bandai Namco made the thrilling announcement that NieR: Automata’s 2B would soon be joining the cast of SoulCalibur VI, which almost seems like a waste for the folks that immediately got to work creating custom-made 2B characters of their own. For those unfortunate enough to have missed the reveal trailer, it can be seen below:
Not one to waste any time, Bandai Namco has released a ton of glorious new screenshots featuring our beloved android, who comes to the game wielding her signature swords and accompanied by her faithful Pod companion. 9S unfortunately isn’t with her, though chances are it won’t be long before a fan recreates him using the game’s custom character creator. Check out the massive batch of screenshots below:
In addition to the battle-related pics and assorted posing shots, we are also treated to our first look at 2B wearing her alternate customer colors, which turns her hair blackish brown and makes her outfit the color of snow. Check ’em out below:
Here’s the 2B announcement blurb from Bandai Namco:
“The SOULCALIBUR franchise is famous for inviting guest characters on to the stage of history to battle against its myriad of characters. Today, we’re excited to announce that Square Enix’s NieR: Automata’s 2B will be joining the battle of souls and swords in SOULCALIBUR VI – out now for PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and PC via STEAM®.
2B wields two swords, Virtuous Contract and Virtuous Treaty. Both have been carefully tuned for maximum efficiency in the hands of a YoRHa android. Her fighting technique is specially designed for combat against machine lifeforms, employing acrobatic leaps and mid-air slashes, lightning-fast evasions and perfectly coordinated strikes.”
