Next up on the EVO 2018 Sunday docket is Tekken 7, but prior to that Top 8, fellow Bandai Namco fighter SoulCalibur VI producer Motohiro Okubo took the stage to reveal not one, but two new characters.

First came the reveal for Astaroth, making his return to the SoulCalibur series. The mighty golem wields his massive axe and uses his power to drive his opponents into the ground. Players also got to see Seong Mi-Na, making her return from SoulCalibur IV. She uses her staff to bash her opponents, as well as vault herself into the air for aerial attacks and combos.

SoulCalibur VI is set to release on Friday, October 19.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      Oh it's on. Asteroth is my favorite character to play in any fighting game.

      Please don't suck. Please don't suck. Please don't suck. Please don't suck.

        My SC group would always stick to fast and light characters. I spent a couple days of Ass-taroth training and ringed-out every challenger again and again and again.
