Cassandra Now Available in Soulcalibur VI as DLC

There had been several fan-favorite characters missing from the Soulcalibur VI roster when the game originally launched. Some of these characters (and by “characters,” I mean just Amy) were added through the first season pass. The next of these characters to receive a place on the Soulcalibur VI roster is the younger sister of Sophitia, the fighter Cassandra.

Cassandra, the Fighter

Cassandra is officially available to holders of the Soulcalibur VI season pass (which can be purchased for $29.99) as the last downloadable character. You can also purchase her separately for $5.99 if you don’t want any of the other characters or character creation set. She will immediately become unlocked for play in multiplayer and single-player modes as soon as you purchase and download the content. Cassandra first appeared in Soulcalibur II and has appeared in most of the main entries since then.

Cassandra in-game model

Cassandra shares some similarities in her moveset to Sophitia but is uniquely her own character when it comes down to the actual mechanics. Adding her to your roster also gives you more options for clothing and makes her fighting style available in character creation mode. In addition, you’ll get story content for her in the single-player modes. You will also unlock two battle comments and four more titles for online play if you use that sort of content.

Seems like a pretty good deal for just $6, if you ask me. I went ahead and downloaded her immediately and she feels like a revamped version of her Soulcalibur IV self. I look forward to playing some online matches with her soon.

You can check out her reveal trailer below to see her in action:

Will you be downloading the latest Soulcalibur VI playable fighter or will you be skipping out on Cassandra because she’s DLC? Let us know in the comments!
