In what may be proof that we have accidentally slipped into some kind of alternate universe, Namco Bandai has announced that Darth Vader and Yoda are playable characters in the Playstation 3 and XBOX 360 versions of Soul Calibur IV.
Darth Vader will appear in the PS3 version, and Yoda will join the 360 cast. I don't mean to nitpick, but doesn't the light saber beat pretty much any weapon in that game?
This isn't the first time that the Soul Calibur series has done this kind of stunt casting. Soul Calibur II also had console specific guest-stars: Spawn for the Xbox version, Heihachi for the PS2, and Link for the GameCube.
Now the debate begins. Which version to get?
