I really like the idea of bringing in outside people to create unique looking characters. However, all will pale in comparison to Darth Vader when that game finally comes out.

Yutaka Izubuchi -- That certainly does explain the elven girl. I was wondering why they decided to do a character like that, now i know.

If I got it right PS3 will get Darth Vader, while 360 will get Master Yoda.
So they brought in people, it seems they want to make a grand finale for the series. ^^

I'm looking forward to it!

I could be wrong, but last I heard, both star wars icons were on both systems.

Regardless, the game is looking quite beautiful, and these guest designed characters look 100 times better than the McFarlane one back in the ol' Soul Calibur 2. Can't wait.

I bet the female characters that Oku Hiroya designed will have boobs bigger their the character's head......... like the characters in Gantz.......... seriously, this guy has a massive obsession with big boobs characters.

Well, Soul Calibur female characters have had some "nice" designs in the past as well, so I think that's nothing new. As for Darth Vader and Yoda, they will be on different systems.

It's kind of ironic then that spoiler[the character who Kurono ultimately falls in love with doesn't have big breasts at all. Though I suppose Oku could always do a sudden turnaround and have Kurono end up with Rei at the end of the series, in my mind that would destroy a large amount of the story/character development so far and would be rather annoying.]

i was looking forward to this game and this really helps, i think it's really awsome what their doing and it makes me wonder what the character creation will be like on soul cal 4

and darth vader will be on ps3 and yoda on 360, but, they also said that they will be making the opposite characters available through the 360 marketplace and i guess whatever the ps3's version of that is (sorry, i havn't owned a ps2 or a ps3 so i don't know what it's called or anything) mainly saying that they understand people will want to clash lightsabers

From that picture, she looks like she's got a surprisingly slim figure, which is coming from a guy who's obsessed with big breast. Anime smile

The sales charts tend to disagree with you.
