We all know that around here we don’t hold video game based movies in very high regard. Games based on movies however can be a lot of fun, but what about when movie characters make themselves a present feature in a video game that has nothing to do with their movie?
1up.com has a sneak peak at SoulCalibur IV:
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.
Yeah, it looks like Yoda and Vader will appear as playable characters in Soul Calibur IV.
Now to keep things interesting Yoda will only be in the XBox 360. Vader is only on the Playstation 3. The logic is that XBox is green and PS3 is Black… makes sense.
But why the HELL are they adding these characters to the Soul Calibur game. I honestly think that Vader and Yoda lose their cool factor when they are out of context. I think a Star Wars style game LIKE Soul Calibur might be cool. But why add them to that world? And how?
For the gamer fans, does it make you want to get either of these games? Does it ruin the games?
If they make a video game movie based on Soul Calibur, do they have to include Vader and Yoda? Will Uwe Boll have to direct?
