Box Art Alert: Kratos Looms Large on Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny Cover

Kratos was a great get for Namco Bandai as the guest character for Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny, and they sure are using the God of War star’s towering popularity among the Sony fan base to help generate even more buzz and draw even more eyes to the upcoming PSP-exclusive fighter currently slated to ship September 1st. Just look at the game’s box art, Kratos and his signature scowl are clearly the focal point (it’s a snazzy cover too by the way, dontcha think?). I suppose this should come as no surprise though. Looking back at past box arts in the series, Namco Bandai has always prominently featured the platform-specific guest fighters on the covers. Just like Link’s appearance in Soul Calibur II, I can see Kratos pulling in new fans who would otherwise have little to no interest in a Soulcalibur game.
