Soulcalibur 6’s second guest character will be YoRHa No. 2 Type B — aka 2B — from Square Enix’s action role-playing game Nier: Automata. She’s coming to the game on Dec. 18.

2B will come armed with her dual blades, Virtuous Contract and Virtuous Treaty, and many of the combat skills from Nier: Automata, as seen in her debut trailer above. You’ll also get a look at 2B’s Soulcalibur 6 stage and a taste of her background music.

2B will be included as part of Soulcalibur 6’s season pass, which also includes returning fighter Tira and two additional playable characters. The game’s season pass costs $29.99, and is included as part of the $89.99 deluxe edition of Soulcalibur 6.

The game’s Nier: Automata-themed DLC will also include additional weapons for 2B, a secondary costume inspired by Nier’s Kaine, and new stickers and costume accessories. Here’s a look at everything that’s included:

Soulcalibur 6 is available now on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.

Here’s a batch of screenshots of 2B in action:
