The SoulCalibur series has a long history of adding characters from other franchises to their games. From Link to Yoda to Ezio, each character has a bit of spice to the popular fighting game series, and made each iteration that much more unique than the last. Since the announcement of "SoulCalibur VI," there has been a lot of speculation of what the next out-of-universe character would be. Well, we finally have an answer: Enter The White Wolf.
Based on the reveal trailer, it looks like Geralt is going to utilize all his Witcher sword-fighting and magical abilities in this new game, which should easily put him in step with any character from the SoulCalibur universe. The character model itself looks faithfully rendered, as well.
"We’ve collaborated with Bandai Namco artists to faithfully recreate Geralt, and shared original Witcher 3 assets like Geralt’s model, animations, and weapons. I think Bandai Namco did an outstanding job of capturing all the details."

One can only wonder what trophies Geralt is going to end up taking from this world.
"SoulCalibur VI" is due later this year on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
