Kratos To Slash Into Soul Calibur IV?

By now, most every fighting fan knows what awaits them in the upcoming Soul Calibur IV: Darth Vader for PlayStation 3 owners and Yoda for Xbox 360 users. They should also be well aware of the hefty fighter roster, which features plenty of familiar faces plus several new ones.

Well, how's about another new one? According to the rumor mill in the August issue of EGM, one of the biggest bad-asses in all of gaming might have a shot at joining the fighter list in SCIV...and his name is Kratos. Turned into a veritable action star by Sony's critically acclaimed God of War series, Kratos just might tear things up in the ring with those blades of his, and it's an appealing possibility. PSU reported on the rumor and reminded us that if Kratos was indeed scheduled to become a SCIV member, he'd be exclusive to the PS3 version of the game. That only makes sense, yes? Unfortunately, Namco Bandai sent the site word that they "don't comment on rumors or speculation" (figures), so there's no way to confirm any of this just yet.

Soul Calibur IV is scheduled to drop on July 29, so we do expect to see this rumor cleared up before long. Stay tuned for the result...

Vader and Yoda etc are cool.. but they will be played mostly sep from the other characters if you ask me.
From reading what some are saying, that seems to be the case. seems that most want the Starwars characters to fight each other, like the true star wars fighting game they always wanted.

I can understand that.

But Kratos on the other hand really REALLY fits in with the feel, gameplay and story.

I hope this is more than idle gossip.

I wonder if Kratos will be a PS3 exclusive, Thered be no point in him being on the 360 version.

Ha I already said this in that other story.

Its kind of not fair that Kratos is in the game because whoever uses him can't lose. It's like playing NBA Live with Chris Paul. You don't have to do anything and you'll win.

honestly, i don't really see this happening... at launch that is..

they have already announced that Yoda will be available as DLC at a later date, so i can see them throwing Kratos into the mix as DLC..

not really sure about how i feel about milking micro-transactions out of a fighting game, might be a great idea might be horrible.. i'll cringe at the $5 a character (assumption) price tag though...

um i dont think Sony would allow Kratos on the 360...

but anyways, if Kratos is for PS3, then 360 will get something too.

I HOPE it's true!!! If Kratos is there then I'm buying this one!!

@Laguna - yeah guess that would happen - but it's no loss for PS3 owners since Kratos is the baddest dude out there >....<

Kratos has a special attack in SC4. It's called Kratos. He just exists and the enemy instantly dies.

Yeah, maybe he can be a cheerleader. Kratos is a REAL spartan.

you know sony won't allow kratos to show up since its going on the 360. the only thing they'd do is to ensure its ps3 only, is what i would hope honestly.
