Bandai Namco has been steadily revealing more of the SoulCalibur VI roster and today they have revealed Maxi will be returning. Maxi made his first appearance in the original SoulCalibur and uses a pair of nunchaku as his weapon. You can watch his reveal trailer below and read more about him.
Maxi’s father had worked in the Ryukyu Kingdom as a merchant. Though fortunate enough to experience different cultures from his trade, he felt tied down by his job. On his deathbed, he told Maxi to go out and see the world. Deciding to live by these words, Maxi set out to seek total freedom. He found this out at sea where he became a pirate to see the world his father couldn’t.
Maxi’s weapon is a nunchaku which is extremely difficult to wield. It will give a rain of pain to the opponent but only if you know how to handle it!
SoulCalibur VI is set to launch on PS4, Xbox One, and PC later this year.
