We need a new sword wielder for next game.

We got two European sword wielders like Dante & Nero. Plus an Asian sword like a katana Vergil wields as he fights like a samurai.

If DMC6 introduces us a new antagonist to be at Nero’s level as the young hunter is still fresh, what kind of sword would be suitable for this one?

It'd help if you had some examples of these swords and the styles for wielding them. The series is about styling on demons with flashy combos. What does having a sword from a different region contribute to the game when we've got five straight games in the series with "Kick 13" for every gauntlet weapon (or bareknuckle style) and "Stinger" any time there's a sword? Agni and Rudra are the exception, I guess, being scimitars.

Explain why?
If its the character you pitched in the other thread, I'd go with a middle eastern sword.

The Khanda just looks the coolest.

I think the Khanda looks cool too for my antagonist idea.

Just need a good sword that screams to the fans.
