Rumortoid: Kratos to be a playable character in Soulcalibur IV

In the latest issue of EGM, rumormonger Quartermann drops a hint that Kratos (of God of War fame) will soon be revealed as the next playable character in the PlayStation 3 version of Soulcalibur IV.

I would link to some reputable source with proof that this is happening, but I’ve got nothing. All I am going on is the word of some mysterious figure in a popular videogame magazine who, for all I know, is actually a cute kitten. Oh, look, Mittens’ ball of yarn just rolled towards those copies of God of War and Soulcalibur! IT’S OFFICAL, KRATOS IS IN THE GAME!

If this is true, though, I know for certain which console version of Soulcalibur IV I am purchasing. Blades of Chaos vs. lightsaber? Yes, please.

What do you think? Too much cross-promotion or the greatest thing ever?! Is Soulcalibur becoming the new Super Smash Bros.?
