Square Enix’s popular fighter franchise SoulCalibur has featured several notable characters from other games. Link from The Legend of Zelda, Kratos from God Of War, Ezio Auditore of Assassin’s Creed etc. have all made an appearance in various entries of the series. SoulCalibur 6 – the latest addition to the series – also has the famous witcher Geralt of Rivia from The Witcher 3 as a guest character. Now, it has been confirmed that another guest character will be coming: The android YoRHa No.2 Type B, more commonly known simply as 2B, from the action game Nier: Automata.

The news was first announced on October 27 on the official Twitter of SoulCalibur. The tweet reads "Mission: eliminate hostile entity known as Soul Edge... Wielding her signature swords, the combat android will keep on fighting until her task is completed.” No specific release date for 2B was mentioned, however. Right now, we only know that she is “coming soon”.

The developers also released a reveal trailer for 2B. From this trailer, we can see that the android has some connection to Ivy, a veteran character of the series.

In term of gameplay, 2B in SoulCalibur 6 is very similar to her Nier: Automata version. With her two trusty swords, Virtuous Treaty and Virtuous Contract, she employs an acrobatic fighting style with lightning-fast strikes and quick evasions. Not only that, she is capable of unleashing special moves, teleporting and attacking from a distance using her levitating Pod.

2B comes to SoulCalibur 6 with an extra package, which includes her own stage and background music, as well as an alternative costume (A pretty skimpy one at that, too). The android is part of the game’s season pass. This season pass brings four new playable characters, including 2B, fan-favorite Tira, and 2 others that have not been revealed.
