    This is real? This isn't a fever dream or some Witcher mutation flowing through my veins? I don't know why I'm so shocked when Noctis is in Tekken 7.

    Eh, the video says Soul Calibur. And yeah, i've seen the announcement. Nice, but not that surprising given Soul Calibur history of "guest appearances" of sword wielding characters from other games.

    @zirilius: He's in SC6, not in Tekken. But SC has had a long history of adding in characters from other games and franchises from comics to movies.

    Whoops had Tekken 7 on the brain. Title is corrected.

    I'm not saying Witcher is more of a stretch than Starkiller, Yoda, Spawn, or Link but I always thought CD Projekt Red kept Witcher stuff pretty close to the vest.

    @zirilius: You must've missed the news piece they put out a week or so ago. CDPR themselves said they'd he'd be appearing in another "new entry" in a series sometime this year, which pretty much cemented that it was going to be SC.

    As for keeping it close to their vest, nah I never got that impression. I mean they don't even own the character. I'm sure they're happy to put him into SC.

    Seems like a pretty good fit, better than a lot of previous SC guest characters, and it looks like they've managed to integrate a lot of Witcher action into his moveset with all of the signs he's throwing out in this trailer.

    Definitely a good fit. Not beholden to any specific weapon, so if they decide to bring back Edge Master mode he'll be right at home. He's got loads of different styles and patterns for them to draw on, and like you said they're using his magic well, which is to say, sparingly. The only other thing I hope they do is make him pick his blade accordingly:

    Steel vs humans, silver vs monsters (Nightmare/Astaroth/Yoshimitsu etc).

    @chaser324: A much better fit than Noctis in Tekken if you ask me.

    I love The Witcher...I’d be tempted to get the game just for Geralt. Toss in Ciri and I almost certainly would.

    Most other Witcher characters don’t really meld with the melee weapon-based combat, I guess....maybe Letho...didn’t he roll with a pair of knives?

    Yep totally missed that. That's pretty cool if you ask me.

    I love The Witcher franchise but I hope his signs arent too OP. Characters that have supernatural abilities like Cervantes can be really annoying to fight against.

    Never got into any of the 3 Witcher games, but this seems like a cool fit. I can dig it.

    It's such a good, obvious, cool fit and yet one I don't think I would have ever thought of if I was making a list of potential guests. I'm playing thru the Witcher 3 right now and I'm really starting to love Geralt so this trailer got me hype as fuck.

    I'll be honest, this is probably the most excited I've been for this game. Maybe because my usual mains, Tira and (true) Siegfried, are nowhere to be seen. Hopefully he's as fun to play as he looks, because he'll probably be my new main.

    Oh... oh man. Now I want a game that takes random characters that just barely kinda fit aesthetically (if you don't think about it too hard) and throw em together in a fighter.

    Geralt vs. Bloodborne Hunter vs. Dragonborn vs. I don't know what.

    Anyways, yeah this is cool. Great fit.

    Hell yeah Geralt is awesome. If I ever play SC6 I am exclusively playing as him.

    Thats fun and unexpected, the witcher always looked cool when he was fighting, lots of spins and flips and things.

    Also kaer Morhen is a great location, i hope some griffins and other monsters are in the background.

    I went from didn't know they were making a new SC to wanting this one actively so I guess the marketing worked?
