Bandai Namco have announced that Talim is making a return as a playable fighter in Soulcalibur VI. Check her out in the new trailer below:

Hailing from the Village of the Wind Diety, a remote island tribe in South-East Asia, Talim was raised as The Last Priestess of the Winds, being the only daughter of the village shaman.

Through this role, Talim learnt the ways of the ceremonial Wind Dance and grew up with the two ancestral elbow blades, Syi Sarika and Loka Luha, used for this sword display. Though trained with the blades as part of the island’s ancient ceremonies, Talim’s vast mastery of these weapons and control of the very wind itself, provided her with a fighting ability vastly beyond her young years.

She spent her entire life on the island, until the day a stranger arrived in Talim’s town carrying a shard of Soul Edge itself. Talim could sense the danger of it just from this small shard and vowed to protect the world by returning it to where it belongs, even if this meant leaving her village and family behind.

Talis was one of my favourite fighters when she debuted in Soulcalibur II, so I’m excited to try her out in Bandai Namco’s newest release. It’s only a few months away now, with Soulcalibur VI launching on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on October 19th 2018.
