GOD OF WAR’S KRATOS by PLAY ARTS

A new Kratos figure is on its way this year! It’s a stunning rendering of the God of War protagonist, outdoing previous figures by bringing a level of detail that definitely hasn’t been seen outside of the game’s own designs. Being part of the Play Arts Kai series means that he also comes with a number of additional weapons and accessories to help you better display this epic anti-hero.

New GOD OF WAR III Action Figures

New GOD OF WAR III figures are now available from DC Direct and it’s an understatement to say that they look fantastic. The game is already known for its lush visuals and the over-the-top (in the best possible way) character design and these 6-inchers capture it all perfectly. Plus, they come with a bunch of weapons that mean you are just one purchase away from staging some pretty ridiculous fights on your very own display shelf.

Soul Calibur: Broken Destiny — Who’s joining the fight?

The answer is…

KRATOS

From Mobile Mag…

As if it wasn’t exciting enough for all the Sony PSP owners in the audience with upcoming games like Little Big Planet, the Soulcalibur fighting game franchise from Namco is on its way to the Sony handheld and it comes with a rather godly bonus. Just as Namco has done in the past with some of its fighting games, we’re getting a cameo.

For Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny, the usual crew of blade-wielding warriors will be joined by none other than Kratos. You might remember Kratos from God of War fame, beating the tar out of opponents many times his size. If he can take on those towering foes, Kratos just may be able to handle Cassandra and Siegfried too. Nightmare could provide for some interesting matchup possibilities though.

The gameplay for the PSP Soulcalibur, the first time the franchise has hit the Sony handheld, is much like what you got in Soul Calibur IV on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. If you’ve ever played any of the other Soulcalibur games in the past, you’ll already be familiar with horizontal strikes, vertical strikes, kicks, blocks, and combinations thereof. From what I can gather, there should be online multiplayer as well.

In addition to Kratos as a guest character, Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny for the PSP will also receive a new character named Dampierre. He was not available in the demo, but I am told that he will have two punching daggers as his weapons of choice.

Look for this game to drop on September 30, 2009.

And as far as merch goes, we expect either Neca or McFarlane to cart out some new Soul Calibur figures in the future, but right now we’ve still got a some of McFarlane Soul Calibur II figure in-stock. And if you’re like me and crazy about Voldo, this is sure to please you. As for God of War’s protagonist, we’ve also got a section of Kratos figures from Neca in a number of different forms. Check ’em out!
