Kratos to Swing the Clubs of Chaos in Hot Shots Golf

Chris Hinojosa-Miranda's Avatar + Posted by Chris Hinojosa-Miranda on Aug 20, 2008 // Producer

Weather reports signal dark ominous clouds forming over Okinawa Golf Resort. Other strangeness reported: disemboweled elephants in the Great Safari, pillaged villages around the Euro Classics course and loitering Spartans around the great Oceania lobster.

Judgment day has come, all bow before the one known as Kratos!

HSG Kratos 03

Yes, all the rumors are true: Kratos, the one and only, has made his way to Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds… and he’s looking to claim his rightful seat as the God of Golf!

In all honesty, integrating Kratos into Hot Shots Golf was by far one of the best experiences, as we got to work closely with the God of War team and the casts of characters (voice over, animators, etc) that created Kratos in his original form.

HSG Kratos

If I had to pick one of the most fun parts, it would have to be our VO sessions and watching (listening?) T.C. Carson jump into the Kratos role in a completely new environment… trust me, there were plenty of eye-watering-side-splitting laughs that day…

HSG Kratos

But aside from VO, the Clap Hanz team paid a great deal of attention to all of Kratos’ characteristics when animating him and hi chain-drivers.

HSG Kratos 06

So starting this Thursday, Kratos will make his way down to your local PS3 via download. You can take him out to a nice single player round offline and once you’ve mastered his technique, give it a go online against all the puny mortals that dare defy you.

+ JackFrost on August 20th, 2008 at 3:14 pm said:

Hi Chris, this is great but I got a question:

On the Japanese PSStore there are, for quite some time, already three costume packs for all current characters.

Will US/EU PSStores get those too? I hope the answer is yes.


33

+ KingBroly on August 20th, 2008 at 3:14 pm said:

There were rumors about this?


34

+ Netweb on August 20th, 2008 at 3:16 pm said:

Where is his partner? nariko? xD

Way to exploit Kratos. /:


36

+ cell989 on August 20th, 2008 at 3:22 pm said:

Where I really want him to be is in Soul
Calibour 4, Kratos would have stolen the show if he appeared in that game. Well Im glad Sony is showing him off in some of their 1st party titles, like HSG, LBP, and hopefully he can make it on other games as well. I would love to see a game where Nariko and Kratos somehow manage to meet, just imagine the possibilities.


37

+ twooh on August 20th, 2008 at 3:24 pm said:

HAHA! He’s a midget. I’ll download him for sure. Only if he’s $.99 though.


38

+ TouchyEd on August 20th, 2008 at 3:25 pm said:

Making any progress adding voice chat to the game?


39

Kratos Camo and Mask in MGS4 is a must!

+ tearsofash on August 20th, 2008 at 3:25 pm said:

This is amazing! Does this mean the costume packs that JPN has been getting will make it over here as well?


41

+ Ghostm on August 20th, 2008 at 3:26 pm said:

Adding Kratos to SC IV would’ve made a bigger impact.


42

+ Captain Fury on August 20th, 2008 at 3:29 pm said:

Kratos: I lay down my arms Golf Ball.
[puts down the Blade of Olympus, turns his back, and kneels]
Kratos: Release me from this torment of my life.
ZGolf Ball: [picks up the Blades of Olympus to execute Kratos] I will release you from your life, my son, but your torment is just beginning.
