Talim is back for Soulcalibur VI

Great news for fans of everyone’s favorite tonfa-loving Last Priestess of the Winds…Talim is back for Soulcalibur VI, and it looks like she hasn’t changed much.

She’s still quipping melodramatically about the wind, still countering and attacking with quick hits from her dual blades. Her character design seems similar to that of Soulcalibur II, though it looks like the switch to the Unreal engine allowed Bandai Namco to render her dorky hat in great detail.

She was my go-to character in Soulcalibur II back in the original Xbox days, and though many people found her annoying (which, let’s face it, she was) I found her over-the-top earnestness and virtually unblockable combos very endearing.

Talim is the 14th fighter confirmed for Soulcalibur VI, which is scheduled for release on October 19 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
