Lightsabers in Soulcalibur, Yoda and Darth Vader clips

By Spencer . May 28, 2008 . 12:16am

Namco Bandai announced the union of Lucasarts and the Soul Edge without any gameplay footage back in January. Now we get to see Yoda and Darth Vader in moving pictures. Yoda rolls around and attacks with a series of quick green lightsaber swings. Darth Vader has the unique ability to lift characters off the ground and toss them in the air with the power of the force. See both of them in the trailers below and click on the button to view the movies in their original size with much less pixilation.






Out of the two Darth Vader looks awesome even though he seems to swing his sword slowly. However, Yoda’s height makes him naturally effective at evading horizontal attacks from the regular sized characters.


Which will you choose when you purchase Soulcalibur IV this summer?

    i hate this kind of divide. namco will probably region lock the 360 version though, so i’ll have to grab the ps3 version even though i’d prefer to play the 360 one. yoda and darth vader look pretty cool, but these extra characters always seem out of place and out of balance.

    btw, are those dodo birds?

    Yoda looks broken. Darth Vader.. a bit slow and that force choke… I can’t see either of these characters working properly in the game. Ah well. I’ll just wait for the first Soul Calibur to hit XBLA.
