EVO took place this past weekend, and, as usual, the tournament played host to a ton of exciting fighting game announcements. Of course, Soulcalibur VI got in on the fun, revealing two new roster additions — the hulking, axe-wielding Astaroth, and my all-time Soulcalibur favorite, Seong Mi-Na. You can check both of them out in action, below. He moves slowly, but can deal out absolutely brutal amounts of damage. Astaroth is a golem created by the leader of an evil cult. Imbued with an amazing strength as well as the martial art experience of highly skilled warriors, he is the perfect weapon to serve the cult doctrine of destruction and rebirth.
In Soul Calibur ll, Seong Mi-na's battle style is called the Seung art of rod and large sword fighting according to the official guide book. Her style involves swinging her weapon around and using sweeping strikes to batter her opponent. She also uses her weapon as a kind of platform, balancing on the side and kicking her enemy. She can also lift herself into the air and slam her blade down hard onto the opposition.
Soulcalibur VI Adds Series Stalwarts Astaroth and Seong Mi-Na to its Roster
Seong Mi-na could cope with being called a "fake boy," but this was a step too far: Han-myeong , her father and the master of the dojo where she trained, was searching for a marriage suitor for her As for Hwang , who was like a brother to her, well It wouldn't have killed him to be more understanding either. Though he'd only just arrived to meet his master, Han-myeong, Hwang decided not to stick around. To Seong Mi-na, running away from home was starting to seem more and more like an attractive idea
Before Super Smash Bros. She felt sorry for the brooding young man and handed him a Seong family heirloom, the dao 'White Storm' that, according to legend, possessed the ability to reflect the innermost thoughts of those who wielded the blade. That night, Yun-seong had packed his belongings and run away from the dojo in pursuit of Soul Edge, taking the dao with him. Since Mi-na had lent the heirloom to him, she felt obligated to retrieve it, and decided to leave the dojang to find him.
