Don’t be so surprised. Ever since Namco Bandai announced Yoda was an Xbox 360 character and Darth Vader was a PlayStation 3 character rumors were swirling about Namco Bandai selling the other character at a later date. Sony Computer Entertainment Korea leaked this information on their Soulcalibur IV product page too which has since been removed.
Now it’s time to dispel the rumors. On October 23rd you will be able to buy the missing Star Wars character for 400 Microsoft Points or 600 yen ($5.95) in Japan. Namco Bandai hasn’t announced a similar promotion for any other region, but you know, you just know this will be coming. I’m betting the absent character will cost slightly less in North America too since 400 Microsoft Points is equivalent to $5 US dollars. While we’re waiting for official news from Namco Bandai USA here are some screenshots of the fated fight.
Update: Namco Bandai USA sent over a press release saying we’ll get the Darth Vader/Yoda DLC on the 23rd too for 400 Microsoft Points or $4.99 on the PlayStation Store.
