Soulcalibur VI will cost $59.99 USD when it releases on October 19th via the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. At the moment, there is no word of a Nintendo Switch release, however, other Bandai Namco fighting games have made their way to the Nintendo platform, so it's a possibility a Switch release will come at a later date.
