Soul Calibur has an ever-growing stable of characters each with their own back story, weapon and fighting style. Whether you prefer the immense and evil Nightmare or the ridiculous Elvis-esque hairstyle of Maxi, there’s someone that’s bound to appeal to you. Yet one of the most enjoyable parts of the series has often been the special guest characters.
Soul Calibur 2 had three different characters depending on your console. Soul Calibur 4 brings in characters from the Star Wars universe, allowing gamers to jump around their opponents as everyone’s favorite jedi muppet. As the first game in the series coming to handhelds, Broken Destiny has a hefty pedigree to live up to and it’s bringing a heavy hitter to the roster, both in terms of sheer power and appeal.
Sony’s handheld will feature a playable character from the company’s own stable of characters and who better to square off against dozens of brutal warriors than Kratos, the antihero of the God of War series. Unfortunately he wasn’t a selectable character for the demo at E3 so we don’t have any shots of him in action yet.
