Quote:
Soul Calibur and Star Wars fans gather 'round -- while haters grab a six pack of Haterade and their always-ready flamethrowers -- because Namco Bandai has finally released new info on the rumored secret characters set to appear in their highly-anticipated fighter, Soul Calibur IV, and 1UP has 'em first. In case you don't believe your eyes as they scan over these screenshots, you are indeed seeing the legendary purveyor of the Dark Side, Darth Vader, and his Force-wielding nemesis, Yoda.

Quote:
Yes, we know what you're thinking. You're thinking "What the hell are Darth Vader and Yoda doing in my Soul Calibur sequel?" But how are these two any less logical (or illogical) than Link or Spawn (we'll let Heihachi slide since he's in Tekken)? You're probably also wondering "Where the damn is Luke Skywalker, Darth Maul and Boba Fett?" Well, Boba Fett doesn't really use melee weapons, unless you count that stick on his back that he never uses. But Luke and Darth maul make a lot of sense. While we can't answer all of these questions just now, we suspect that Namco Bandai still has plenty of stuff up their sleeve. Given their recent Ace Combat 6 shenanigans, we wouldn't be surprised to learn that additional Star Wars characters are paid-for downloadable content. It's unlikely that the company would go through all these negotiations with LucasArts to obtain the rights to only two characters, so expect more announcements as we get closer to SCIV's release date.

Wow, the graphics look incredible. I don't mind them being in there if they actually look like their movie counterparts. C'mon, who wouldn't want to kick Darth Vader's arse :p

I hope they include Darth Vader's harmonica in there when he takes his helmet off. :p

I've never been a fan of beat 'em ups apart from Soul Calibur series really, and being a fan of the Star Wars films, then this is now a must-buy for me. :D

My name is Darth Vader, I beat Asteroth on leech mode, I enjoy long walks on beaches, harmonicas and Unicorns.

Yoda ftw.

Looks like if you wanna play as Darth Vader in Soul Caliber 4, you are going to have to get a PS3. Yoda is exclusive to the 360 version.

Well shit I was looking forward to laying some Sith Smackdown but it will be a cold day in Georgia before I buy a PS3.

While I'd love to play as Vader (Vader vs Nightmare would be awesome) it's fitting that the evil character goes to the appropriate evil console.

Maybe he'll be downloadable later on.

Oh my god! I have the biggest nerd boner now. I was gonna get this game anyhow but now I am dying to get this. I've been waiting years to kick some ass with my little green friend. Ever since playing masters of teras kasi i have been waiting for this day. Man I hope they do more characters through dlc.

Masters of Teras Kasi on the PS1 was the shit! :p

Anyways, after hearing about having to have a PS3 to play as Darth Vader, I'm gutted... :(

Oh well, I suppose Yoda can fill that spot that will be missing in my heart. Unless they release more characters via DLC. That'd probably turn it into a Star Wars beat 'em up though. :p

Although I have to agree with one of the above posters, Yoda > Vader.

Wheres Wreckon he needs to see this:pYou know yesterday morning I'm sitting in a very important meeting discussing a breaththrough in Anthrax treatment and I get a phone call from Flea telling me Vader is in Soul Calibur IV and I'm whacking off. I thought he was just lying because I ditched him on Shadowrun but apparently he was right... mayhap I'll have a reason to fire up the PS3 for something other than movie watching.

Love that yoda will be in the 360 version, sucks that Vader is in the PS3. I hope he becomes available as DLC later on

Isn't Yoda like better than every other character in the game? I mean c'mon. 1st, you can't use the grab moves on Yoda, because he is so small compared to others, making the grab miss. 2st, you can't use horizontal moves on Yoda, because he is so small compared to others, making the hit miss.

I think it's kinda... no really weird but hey they'll be pretty fun to play and will fit better than Heihachi in the PS2 version of SCII, he has no weapons! The game looks astonishing though, always loved the series a nd will get this.

Thats outstanding.

But yeah you know all the little shits are gonna be yoda online. You can't grab them, can't hit them with horizontal attacks, and they will be bouncing around the place at light speed like a furby on crack pausing you throw you across the screen with the force every few minutes or so. Unless they do some serious balancing work this could suck hardcore.
