Kratos Playable In SC:Broken Destiny

#1 Edited by skrutop (3615 posts) -

From Joystiq (link to article with pics):

"Following last year's ballet with the Force, the company has announced that
God of War's Kratos will be taking out his frustration on the cast of Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny for the PSP."

I can't say as I'm surprised at all, as I expected him to show up in SC4 for the PS3.  From the screens, he'll be able to switch weapons, and he has the Icarus wings.

As a fan, I am not going to say no. The novelty factor sounds too fun.

Kratos looks overpowered... Just like he should be...

@LiquidPrince: Exactly. He looks like he's going to be a lot of fun. Plus he actually, you know, fits into the universe.

Eh did i not make a thread about this? I was the one who added the screen shots here but I'm sure that i've made a thread about it yet it is not in this forum, wonder what happened.

edit: looks like i accidentally posted that in the "kratos" forums after linking the images over.

So, it seems the rumors of Kratos appearing in Soul Calibur IV actually had some truth to them.

Any other character confirmed? Like one from MS's side? Master Chief or Marcus vs Kratos fights?

Yeah, dude, I figured someone started a thread for it in this forum, and I wanted to comment on it.  I didn't see a thread, so I went ahead and created one.

Looks awesome.  I just wonder how the game will play on PSP.

EDIT:  Also, every time I hear the God of War song I always think of this video now.

Great choice. will likely effect whether or not i buy the game

just have to say its really sad, namco being unable to sell units and sell the old hat soul calibur game with no real major changes resorts yet again to adding in secret, exclusive characters to get sales hype.
I wish they'd just redo the whole game system and actually produce something people are gonna wanna buy, cause hype for this game and all past games with the secret exclusive characters all ways dies down 2 days after release cause people find out its not nearly as fun or special as they'd thought it would be.

*remembers his only liked soul game soul blade back on ps1* now that was a good game sad to see what the franchise has turned into.

William, you haven't even played the game, so how can you possibly draw the conclusion that it's the same old game with no updates :? Even if this plays as well as the Dreamcast original, I will be happy enough that it's coming to PSP. It looks fantastic for a handled version of the game, no SC fan in there right mind expects Namco to pushing the franchise forward with a handheld game, except for you....  /

Is it possible for the God of War series to take place in the same time as Soul Caliber?

Putting Kratos in any fighting game seems incredibly unfair to me.  I'm pretty sure there's no one Kratos can't murder.
