She Who Vows to Rebuild Her Homeland
While most eyes have been on BlizzCon 2019 in Anaheim, the Soulcalibur World Invitational 2019 was held in Las Vegas as well. Though this event primarily looks for an crowns the next Soulcalibur World Champion, producer Motohiro Okubo took this opportunity to announce the next Soulcalibur VI DLC character. Hilde von Krone will be entering the fray as the first character in the second Season Pass for Soulcalibur VI and a trailer was also released along her announcement.
In the trailer, her weapon combination of her short sword and spear preludes Hilde’s arrival. Her spear also holds the banner of her country, depicting a howling wolf. She wears gold body armour with matching gold gauntlets and crown. Over her armour, she wears a red coat, trimmed with white fur. At a young age, Hilde became the leader of Wolfkrone Kingdom (present day Germany) after her father was driven mad by the Evil Seed. Her leadership allowed her kingdom to fight back against the invasion by the Azure Kight, better known as Nightmare.
Hilde first appeared in Soulcalibur IV, and again in Broken Destiny, V, and Lost Swords. The trailer ends with her being revealed to be the first character in the second Season of DLC, right ahead of the guest character Haohmaru from Samurai Shodown. Neither Hilde nor Haohmaru have release dates. Soulcalibur VI is out on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
