The crossover between Star Wars and Soul Calibur got a bit more interesting yeserday, when it was revealed that the protaginest in LucasArt’s upcoming title Star Wars: Force Unleashed would be a playable character in both the PS3 and 360 versions of Soul Calibur IV. Today, a new trailer was released, with one minute of all the content we’ve seen before (all the characters with the emotions that flow in their soul), and then a good 15 seconds of the Secret Apprentace of Darth Vader in action. From what’s shown in the trailer, he seems to be one of those faster brawlers, capable of unleashing strong air combos, much like Master Yoda.
While this still gives us no clue whatsoever on how the lightsaber clad warriors wind up in the SC-verse, it’s still a nice thing to see when you’re a man who eats up crossover fictions like he eats mountains of cookie dough ice-cream.
Meanwhile, former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor is planning on releasing an educatainment title, planned for release in 2009. According to O’Connor, the game will let players “step into the shoes of a judge, a legislator, an executive” and “teach [players] how to think through and analyze problems, take action and voice opinions to their elected representatives.” I can only hope that this game will finally get American rednecks to get their heads out of their asses, and learn exactly how a little black schoolgirl changed the world by living near a white man’s school, but having to use her scrawny little woman legs to go to the black man’s school on the other side of the world.
And if you don’t understand what Brown vs Board of Education was, and what it did to end racism forever, you need to play this game. A lot.
