Soul Calibur IV Star Wars Cross-promotion Expands


This whole Star Wars tie-in with Soul Calibur IV still baffles me to no end, but Namco Bandai is clearly having a ball with it, now announcing that yet another Star Wars character will be making a guest appearance. Both the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions will now also provide Darth Vader’s Secret Apprentice, the star of the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Unleashed game, as a playable character. While I don’t see Vader and Yoda fitting in with the SC universe at all, this dude seems to mesh a little bit better I think. Still don’t quite get it though…

Hit the jump for the Secret Apprentice’s intro trailer and screenshot gallery.
