No Kratos in Soul Calibur IV
Rumors emerged last week that God Of War protagonist Kratos would appear in the latest rendition of Namco's flagship fighting franchise, Soul Calibur IV. It wasn't too far fetched of a rumor. Afterall, Soul Calibur II featured exclusive characters such as Link on the GameCube version and Heihachi on the PS2 version. However, 1up.com smashed these rumors in their latest podcast
, confirming that Kratos is absent from the game.
Its possible that he could be DLC in the future, but as of now, its safe to assume he won't be joining the slug fest. Soul Calibur IV is due out for the PS3 and X360 at the end of this month.
