Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny’s Secret Character Is Kratos

By Spencer . June 2, 2009 . 8:05pm


What would a Soulcalibur game be without a surprise guest character? The PSP exclusive Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny adds God of War star Kratos as a contender for Soul Edge.


Kratos was not playable at E3. Neither was newcomer Dampierre. Screenshots show Kratos with two weapons the Blades of Chaos and a sword.


Since I couldn’t try anyone new I gave my favorite character Hilde a go and Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny is as fluid as Soulcalibur IV when fighting against the CPU. An impressive feat, if you’re a fan of Soulcalibur.

    they should have done this for the ps3 version but probably there wasnt an equally fit character from the xbox IP.

      They could have used the Halo Spartan or something, like DOA4. He has his plasma blade or whatever it is he has. If you got lightsabers, it isn’t much of a stretch either.

      Actually, bring in Marcus Fenix and his chainsaw instead.

    I heard Kratos refused to return for God of War III unless he would also get cast in a game where he wouldn’t be the most ridiculous character.

    That’s not Kratos Kratos. That’s Kratos Pg-13.

    Ah hell, my prayers for KOS-MOS were for naught. But I guess Namco got the double-dip out of the way with Yoshimitsu (and Heihachi back in II).

    Damn. Not to sound homoerotic…but with all them boobs floating around Soul Calibur, it’s about time we got some fresh manliness around here.

    And who’s more manly than Kratos….?

    I must have this game! Damn you Namco!

    Wow, I am impressed. This seems a much better fit then those horrible Star Wars tie ins. My question is how does it play? I have not liked a SC game since 2, I can’t put my finger on it as to why either. I just don’t like the changs to the moves, nor how some moves were either shortened or not there at all. Also whats up with there being no selectable difficulity for Arcade mode and why do my created characters have to be so weak (they have more clothes on then Ivy so why can’t I have a full health bar for them?) oh well I just hope this one turns out better.
