Darth Vader and Yoda in Soul Calibur IV

As surreal as it may sound 1up have revealed that both Darth Vader and Yoda will join the cast of Soul Calibur IV. Gamevideos even have a trailer up, which you can see at the bottom of this news item. No, you are not dreaming, this is not April 1st, and yes this is real. When you think about it though it is not all that crazy of an addition as both Link and Spawn had a rather good time in the third incarnation of the game a few years ago, on the Gamecube and Xbox respectively.

Furthermore, if the above is not weird enough for you, and you really, really need more Star Wars in your games, then you will be happy to hear that Namco are planning to include even more characters from the Star Wars universe in the game via paid-for downloadable content after the game’s release.

As release dates go the game is still planed to hit PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 sometime in the Summer, so you should be getting excited about the game now. Unless this has put you off buying, but if so, then I find your lack of faith disturbing.
