Known for its unrivaled gameplay, graphical prowess and its colorful cast of brooding brawlers, Soulcalibur never needed help in proving it was king of the mountain. Never. Fast forward to 2008 and the long-anticipated Soulcalibur IV now features three Star Wars characters - evil Sith badass Darth Vader for PS3, Jedi Muppet lord Yoda for 360 and as of a couple weeks ago, The Force Unleashed's secret apprentice for both systems.
Did anyone tell Namco or George Lucas that it might be a little too much? Besides being a painfully forced tie-in (Unleashed ain't even out yet!), do Gamers even want their beloved characters from a galaxy far, far away to throw down with the likes of Ivy and Voldo? A simple trolling of the interweb hints at a strong 'maybe', but for the undecided, GamesRadar have put together reasons why Star Wars might be shanking the kidneys of Soul Calibur.
