Bandai Namco have revealed the series favourite Volda will be returning to Souls Calibur VI later this year.
Born in Palermo, Italy, Voldo was the vicious right-hand man of Vercci, an Italian weapons dealer and head of the Burg family, using his dual Jamadhar weapons, Manas & Ayus, to send deadly messages.
Vercci amassed a huge fortune of weapons and treasures over his life, which he stored on an island in the middle of the Mediterranean, in a deep underground cavern known as the Money Pit. It was here where Voldo was stationed for much of his master’s life and where he remained for many years after his master death, guarding the treasures within.
His years spent in the dark depths of the Money Pit caused Voldo to lose his eyesight, but gained tremendous hearing and heightened senses. It was also where he developed his own self-taught, but bizarre and unpredictable fighting style.
Voldo remains within The Money Pit, awaiting those foolish enough to try and steal its treasures, only to find themselves ensnared by the terrifying guardian lurking in the shadows.
Soul Calibur VI launches for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on October 19th 2018
