Bandai Namco has announced that suave swordsman, Raphael will return for Soulcalibur 6.

As you can see in the announcement trailer above, Raphael is serious about taking his opponents down—in the most grandiose way possible. 

First appearing in Soulcalibur 2, Raphael was born to the aristocratic Sorel family where he was taught the ways and customs of high society, his skill as a swordsman helped him defend his family against his many political enemies.

Raphael will join a cast that—so far—includes Sophitia, Mitsurugi, Nightmare, Xianghua and Kilik, and Grøh.

Soulcalibur 6 is due for release on October 19. In the meantime, you can check out the new screenshots of Raphael, below.

Sarah's earliest gaming memories involve playing Jet Set Willy on the ZX Spectrum at a friend's house. These days, and when not writing guides, most of her spare time goes into MMOs—though she's quite partial to JRPGs too. She has spent much of the last decade playing the likes of Star Wars: The Old Republic, TERA, Final Fantasy 14, and World of Warcraft. Sarah has been writing about games for several years and, before joining PC Gamer, freelanced for the likes of TechRadar, GamingBible, and Rock Paper Shotgun. One of her fondest hopes is to one day play through the ending of Final Fantasy X without breaking down into a sobbing heap. She probably has more wolves in Valheim than you.
