Soul Calibur VI Ver. 1.40 Update Now Live on All Platforms, Adds 150 Creation Parts, New Moves


Soul Calibur VI's Character Creation mode is probably the best creation mode in any fighting game to date. Bandai Namco looks to improve the mode further by adding "150" new Creation parts in the next update for the game, Version 1.40. The update, arriving May 16th, will also add Ansel support for the PC version, new default Color Variations for the cast on the select screen (Colors 3 & 4), compatibility for "Set B" Character Creation DLC, 97 background music tracks (from Soul Calibur II & III), and other bug fixes & gameplay updates. [UPDATE] Producer Motohiro Okubo confirmed on Twitter that the patch has arrived a day early and is now live on all platforms.

Additionally, the 1.40 patch has updated character movesets with brand new moves and/or cancels, arming players with even more options. Several existing moves were also updated with all new visual effects (Ex: Ivy's command throws). Scroll further down for preview images and official patch notes from Bandai Namco (although character-specific notes have not yet been posted).

Below are the official patch notes from Bandai Namco.
