2B comes with her own unique stage, as well as alternate costume, music and more. 2B is the second DLC character to be revealed for Soulcalibur VI, with three more still on the way. Each DLC character can be purchased separately for $5.99 USD, or as a part of the season pass for $29.99 USD. Soulcalibur VI appears to be off to a strong sales start, debuting at the #6 spot on the October 2018 NPD charts.
NieR: Automata has also been a strong success, with recent physical shipment and digital sales numbers of over 3.5 million copies. If you’d like to learn more about that game, you can read our review right here.
