Stating with a degree of certainty that the mystery game is Soulcalibur

The Soul Calibur 6 guard is the safest option, neutralising most other moves and only being beaten by a vertical slash. Also of note is the Guard Impact, a forward-moving block that beats all top three attacks on the list. In practice, this is something like Sophitia bashing her way forward with her shield.
Considering The Witcher's tremendous success in the West, the tweet obviously set the internet ablaze with speculation. Not long after the tweet was published, we came across this report from Let's Play Video Games, which is stating with a degree of certainty that the mystery game is indeed Soulcalibur 6. Joe Parlock claims in their report that sources reached out to LPVG earlier with this information, and Momot's tweet was the corroboration that they had been waiting for.

At least 30 characters
The very restricted nature of the Soulcalibur 6 demo we played at GameSprite’s Paris showcase, allied to Producer Motohiro Okubo’s refusal to discuss certain aspects of the game in interview, means that feature-wise, plenty of question-marks still hang over Soulcalibur 6’s feature-set. However, here’s what we do know.
Soul Charge costs a single bar of meter and buffs characters into leveled up versions of themselves. They gain access not only to higher damage, but entirely new moves altogether.
The game is set in the 16th century, which means it returns to the era of the first Soul Calibur games – in Soul Calibur V, for example, Sophitia’s children featured as the main characters, but in Soulcalibur 6, she is young again.
