While some could-be-real, could-not-be-real images and video of Vader battling Yoda in Soul Calibur IV have surfaced over the past few weeks, the rumour that both characters will feature as DLC (Yoda for PS3, Vader for 360) is far from confirmed. Enter Soul Calibur IV director Katsutoshi Sasaki, who...fails to confirm or deny said rumours, saying "We don't have any plans" to add the pair as platform-crossing DLC. Once was a day "no plans" meant just that, there were no plans, but these days it could just as easily mean "sure we will, but we'll announce it in a month's time when you're starting to get sick of the game".

I call BS on this one. We'll have Yoda v. Vader by the end of the year, if not the end of August. Once the sales decline or once the online numbers start to drop.
I'm calling it right now. It'll be annonuced with some kind of PR spin saying the following: "Following incredible demand from fans of Soul Calibur on both consoles, we have decide to change our plans and offer Yoda and Darth Vader for all to enjoy!"
About 75% of people who are claiming it's a ripoff will buy it. Namco will win.
@King of Fun UK: Exactly. And I'd wager on the PS3 version there's the same gap there somewhere on the select screen. Likely to the left of vader...
