Soulcalibur games always have special guest characters tying into the platform their on, and Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny for PSP will be no different. Namco Bandai has just confirmed that God of War star and everyone’s favorite Blades of Chaos-wielding badass, Kratos will be Broken Destiny‘s guest character when the game launches this summer. It’s a no-brainer really. Kratos is such a perfect fit for Soulcalibur‘s weapon-based fighting style.

“In creating the Soulcalibur PSP system exclusive title, we knew Kratos was the only choice to appear as our special guest character,” said Makoto Iwai, Executive Vice President and COO, NAMCO BANDAI Games America. “God of War embodies the characteristics of a classic Soulcalibur guest character with a powerful persona, a rich back story and a mighty blade with which to fight.”

“The God of War development team are huge fans of the Soulcalibur series. We were honored to make Kratos a special guest character in SOULCALIBUR: Broken Destiny for PSP,” said Allan Becker, senior director, SCEA Santa Monica Studio. “NAMCO BANDAI has been great to work with; they’re dedicated to bringing authentic Kratos combat moves to the game.”
