Bandai Namco announced today that 2B from Nier: Automata is coming to Soulcalibur VI. The new character will also come with a stage based on her game, but we do not know when this content is releasing.

Soulcalibur VI launched on October 19 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. We praised the fighting game’s accessible action. New characters, especially ones from different franchises, can keep its fans playing for a longer time.

Nier: Automata was one of 2017’s surprise hits. The action game earned fans with its melancholy world, memorable characters, and multiple endings. 2B is Nier: Automata’s main hero. She’s part of an android army that’s fighting a war against less-human-like machines. Nier: Automata shipped over 3 million copies.
