Soul Calibur: Broken Destiny Comic-Con 2009 Preview

Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny will be one of the best-looking games for the PSP when it's released. Of that, there is no doubt. But Soulcalibur has often flirted with guest characters, sometimes to cheers (Link), other times to frustration (Yoda). Kratos from God of War will be in the PSP iteration. The question: does it work?

Based on a few rounds with a playable Kratos at Comic-Con, it does. There's not much about Kratos that doesn't already seem to drop right in to the Soulcalibur universe (Voldo and Yoshimitsu have set the weirdo bar pretty high) and while Kratos looks a little angrier than everyone else, he's otherwise a natural fit.

Kratos works as a Soulcalibur character because the weapons lend themselves to a typical SC moveset seemingly without much effort. Kratos' primary weapons are the blades of chaos, with a few moves incorporating his trademark chains, too. One move even had Kratos sprouting wings and briefly shooting into the air.

Whether Kratos will hold up in serious competition (or if the PSP version is even able to stand up to that kind of hardcore scrutiny) isn't known, but based on my trial run with him, Soulcalibur fans shouldn't be upset that he's making an appearance.

    I will be buying tis the first minute it comes out... Kratos was a veeeeeeerrrrrryyy needed addition to the Soul Caliber roster... I've bought both of the Soul caliber games.. on DreamCast and PS3... the last time I was this excited ws whn I heard Darth Vader theme in the preview of the last one... But this one won't disappoint me like last time by the videos and screen shots...

    what reason does kratos ever have to look any less than really pissed off? he fights and kills everyday and murdered the people closest to him. he committed suicide, abandoning others in the war and had had the gods ressurrect him like 20 times. angry life angry lifestyle.

    That looks like a very Nightmareish move Kratos is using against Nightmare in that first shot.
