Rumor: SCIV to feature Sith/Jedi character creation classes
According to a PSU source, Namco Bandai's Soul Calibur IV will feature not only Star Wars characters such as Darth Vader, Yoda, and Vader's secret apprentice, but will also include both Sith Lord and Jedi Knight character creation classes.
Although details are already scarce on the character creation options in Soul Calibur IV, we do know that choosing certain clothes or armor will affect how players behave in battle. Also, some pieces of equipment favor offensive and others defensive playstyles. It will be interesting if this rumor is true, as players will be able to not only create medieval looking characters but also their own lightsaber-wielding Sith warriors.
To take things one step further, we have also been told that Soul Calibur IV will feature up to five known characters from the Star Wars universe, including the 3 previously announced characters. Who will these other two characters be? Your guess is as good as ours, however, seeing as though the secret apprentice fights for the dark side, we expect one of the unannounced characters to be a Jedi.
Stay tuned to PSU.com for more information on this rumor, as we wait for official word from Namco Bandai.
