Star Wars characters to feature in Soul Calibur IV

Star Wars

Namco have recently released a teaser trailer confirming Star Wars characters Darth Vader and Yoda are going to be special characters in the PS3 and 360 versions of Soul Calibur IV respectively.


While each character appears confined to their respective console for the moment, it seems likely that they will both be made available on both consoles via a (expensive) patch at a later date.


The game is expected this summer, and will see the return of series veterans such as Mitsurugi, Nightmare and Ivy, amongst others. We’re big fans of the series here at Thunderbolt and we’re really anticipating this game; why not have a look at some of our reviews for previous entries in the series. While you’re at it, have a look at some of the Soul Calibur IV trailers on YouTube.

Rumblings of the Ewoks and Jawas featuring in Tekken 6 appear to be false at this time.
