Soulcalibur VI’s most recently announced character is the fencer Raphael, having been revealed and shown off fairly recently. Fencing is a well-loved style in fighting games and Raphael has a large number of fans who like the way his style feels. Soulcalibur VI producer is Motohiro Okubo is one of those fans and, really, what better opponent for an amateur fencing enthusiast than Olympic medal winner Miles Chamley-Watson?
Watson took home the bronze medal in the 2016 Olympic games, which might make him slightly out of Okubo’s league. You can catch their fencing battle, and the subsequent second round of Soulcalibur VI with brand new footage of Raphael, below.
Soulcalibur VI releases on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 19.
