The developer behind God of War: Ascension has said that it believes series protagonist Kratos still has life left in him, despite starring in six core titles in eight years.

God of War debuted on PlayStation 2 back in 2005, and the franchise returns to our screens once again next week with the release of Ascension; a prequel which tells the story of Kratos and his attempts to battle free of the God of War, Ares.

However, despite his lengthy gaming career, Sony Santa Monica Studios doesn’t believe Kratos is ready to retire and mow the lawn just yet.

Speaking to CVG, lead designer Mark Simon commented: "I think there's still life in Kratos. He's a fun character to design games around and I love playing him."

“Yeah, I think the fantasy of Kratos is always compelling. “There’s not many characters that are like him,” concurred lead combat designer, Jason McDonald.

Our review of God of War: Ascension is now live for your viewing pleasure. The game itself is released on March 15, exclusively for PS3.
