Report: Players Who Create 'Inappropriate' Custom Characters In Soulcalibur VI Now Risk A Ban
Soulcalibur VI features a fairly robust create-a-character mode. It also lets you take any character you create into the online competitive modes, including ranked. You can see how that might cause issues from a mile away, but Bandai Namco looks to be on the case.
According to a translated message on the official Soulcalibur VI Japanese website, players who make "inappropriate characters" now risk having their accounts banned from online play.
The exact definition of "inappropriate" is somewhat vague. There are plenty of characters loaded with mundane objects that, when put together, create obscene imagery, but also characters who obscure the entire screen, change the hitboxes of certain attacks, or take one character swap it out for another in an attempt to confuse opponents in ranked matches. We've reached out to Bandai Namco to clarify and will update this article should they reply.
