Screenshot of NieR: Automata's 2B in Soulcalibur VI

After being teased all the way back in October, NieR: Automata's combat android 2B has now made its way to Soulcalibur VI as a new DLC character. As you might expect, 2B's combat style consists of fast melee attacks that can be easily combo-ed together, as well as a variety of ranged attacks that come from her support unit and allow her to do coordinated strikes.

If you're wondering what all of that looks like in gameplay terms, allow me to share with you the original teaser trailer for 2B. Have a gander, it's a fairly short but enjoyable video:

I'm not much of a fighting game fan so I can't comment about the balance, but from everything I've seen so far 2B does appear to be an extremely solid character. Her moveset is varied and interesting, there was a lot of effort put into her animations, and perhaps most importantly of all, she has brought in some of NieR: Automata's excellent music into the mix! Whether you consider her inclusion worthy of €5, however, that is something I'll leave for you to decide.

You can learn more about 2B, as well as Soulcalibur VI itself, by visiting Steam. Have fun smacking your opponents around!
