Soul Calibur 6 Moves List Guide – Command List for All Characters

Soul Calibur 6 Moves List

Before we dive into the moves of each character, we will go ahead and look at the “Key” which will illustrate what each of the buttons does.

After that, we will look at the recommended moves of each character one by one because each character is different and has different playstyles.

The actual move system of the character is not that complex and does not use as many buttons as there are on a modern controller. The game is simple enough for it to be played without having to use the triggers and the bumpers.

Let us go ahead and see the moves for all of the characters one by one.
