Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny – New Interview

Chris Morell's Avatar Posted by on Jul 28, 2009 // Senior Social Media Specialist

We saw Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny when it was announced for the PSP back in April, and again at E3 where Kratos was officially revealed as a playable character.

Well, this time Namco Bandai stopped by to talk more Kratos, his moves and more, as well as what’s new and exclusive to the first PSP version of Soulcalibur, and you’ll catch some of his gameplay in between my chat with Senior Brand Manager Dennis Lee.

Looking forward to this. Kind of wish they hadn’t dropped support for the console versions so soon. Kind of wish the console versions also had a more fleshed out CAS mode like in BD too…here’s hoping for SCV.

+ WestSiide on July 28th, 2009 at 9:16 am said:

I meant *GOOD*


+ ProSoldier14 on July 28th, 2009 at 9:17 am said:

Game looks pretty cool, might have to pick it up. Also, Ratchet & Clank news coming today right?

Will Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny be available on PSN?


+ daverhodus on July 28th, 2009 at 9:20 am said:

If so, when?


+ Jeigh on July 28th, 2009 at 9:22 am said:

The game looks amazing, especially considering it’s on the PSP, and the addition of Kratos was brilliant. Hell, for that last point alone I was considering breaking my ‘no fighting games’ rule, but, unfortunately, breaking that might lead to breaking my PSP. Either way, I greatly appreciate your support of the PSP- you guys rock, make no mistake about it. With the addition of such games as Dissidia, Soul Calibur, Patapon 2, LocoRoco 2, Gran Turismo and LittleBig Planet all converging on the PSP, hopefully you’ll get the sales worthy of your efforts. :) (Hell, I might buy the game for a friend just to support you.)


+ Jeigh on July 28th, 2009 at 9:24 am said:

Oh, and just so it’s clear: I was referring to those other games to point out that PSP may start getting more attention with gaming as the focal point. Not in terms of rough competition. :)


+ Delriach on July 28th, 2009 at 9:32 am said:

The game is looking very good.


+ skynidas on July 28th, 2009 at 9:39 am said:

Looks great for a PSP title.


+ KazeEternal on July 28th, 2009 at 9:42 am said:

PSP Connect?!


+ NewYork214 on July 28th, 2009 at 9:45 am said:

most anticipated game for PSP for me. with assasins creed in second. and then tekken.


+ Arthael_ on July 28th, 2009 at 9:47 am said:

Where’s the new Ratchet & Clank trailer ? :'(


+ Jeigh on July 28th, 2009 at 9:53 am said:

@ Arthael_

Stay on topic, genius. Wherever the trailer is, I think you can read well enough to see that THIS isn’t it.


+ TRIX_BOL on July 28th, 2009 at 9:59 am said:

Kratos is well received in Broken Destiny. But why not add it to SC IV first!
They still have time to support SC IV with Kratos, unless they are working on a new title.

So far, this title looks epic for being the first SoulCalibur game on PSP. And with the addiction of Kratos, it will mark it’s word for sure.


+ THE_LIGHT_05 on July 28th, 2009 at 10:12 am said:

I watched a trailer showcasing Kratos, and it was awesome!! He was so brutal!! Wait… he’s always brutal. Nevermind, nothing new. :-)


+ WindedHero on July 28th, 2009 at 10:15 am said:

You guys need to fix your video player. I’m not sure what’s changed in the last couple weeks but now if you move the mouse away from the player it flashes white and resets the video.

    Hmm, thanks for letting us know. I haven\’t seen this yet, but we\’ll see if we can figure out exactly what the problem is.


+ waffman11 on July 28th, 2009 at 10:30 am said:

@Jeigh: Grr, Jeigh angry, Jeigh smash on comment!
The game looks interesting, but I’ll have to pass, since I don’t really like brawlers. I’m more of a shooter guy.


+ sNsKid on July 28th, 2009 at 10:45 am said:

When I get my PSP Go this is for sure one of the games I’ll be getting.


+ JKar275 on July 28th, 2009 at 11:19 am said:

I was wondering if the PS3 version of SC4 could be updated/patched to have a PSP Connect feature similar to Resistance 2? I would like SC4 to have PSP Connect so that we could play SC:BD at home with a PS3 controller.

What do you guys think about this?


+ DMPrince on July 28th, 2009 at 11:27 am said:

WIll this game be adhoc party supported?


+ DONNYxMC on July 28th, 2009 at 11:31 am said:

how about some socom updates? why dont you take care of your number one online community instead of leaving us out to dry! why we are waiting on mystery patch you could give us some DLC previews


+ TheGuardianFID on July 28th, 2009 at 11:33 am said:

I can’t wait for this game, hopefully we get a demo, hint hint!!! :P ;D


+ mikemill on July 28th, 2009 at 11:51 am said:

QUESTION: Will a digital version of this be released on 9/1 in the PSN store?


+ WindedHero on July 28th, 2009 at 11:53 am said:

@20.1 Nevermind, Chris. I’ve narrowed it down to being a plugin for Firefox called AdBlock Plus. Most of my friends were experiencing the same issue. The videos seem to be working fine in IE8 and firefox with AdBlock Plus disabled, but not so well with it enabled. It might have been something that viddler changed with their video code to give adblock a false positive, or a filter added by Adblock. Hopefully it gets corrected, I’m a big fan of not seeing ads on my intarwebz.


+ Tikicobra on July 28th, 2009 at 12:15 pm said:

It looks great. I’ll have to get this.


+ Zookey on July 28th, 2009 at 12:23 pm said:

Did NBG mention whether this game would be UMD, download or both? I’d love to download it over buying it on disc…


+ Thrasher20 on July 28th, 2009 at 12:41 pm said:

Looks cool.

So, you can connect the game to the PlayStation 3 as well? Like Resistance Retribution?

I hope you can do that as well with Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker!


+ jawara on July 28th, 2009 at 12:52 pm said:

Wow this is my first time ever leaving a comment on the blog and i am proud 2 say it is worth it. this game truly deserves the attention. quick question will it b on the psn on the release date? thats the only obstacle. i dnt wanna buy it on umd. im gettin a psp go in october so that wouldnt make sense. does anyone know?


+ lowhonor on July 28th, 2009 at 1:02 pm said:

i want that jeanne d arc poster in the background!!


+ walnoj on July 28th, 2009 at 1:15 pm said:

If the game is available on the PSN Store, I’ll consider purchasing it.


+ TailsTheCat on July 28th, 2009 at 2:03 pm said:

Meh. Wings like Devil Jin, Kratos had. Ill be passing on yet another terrible Soul Calibur game.
Soul Calibur played on Dreamcast is the best Soul Calibur game.


+ Trucidation on July 28th, 2009 at 2:31 pm said:

Soul Claibur: Broken Video Player


+ onlineatron on July 28th, 2009 at 2:35 pm said:

Does the game have online play?

If not can we use the Japanese PS3 connect thingy. Or maybe we can get a western version?


+ katsuo7171 on July 28th, 2009 at 3:01 pm said:

Will we be able to download this game from the PS store? I’m thinking about getting a PSP Go and this game is a must.

Or should I wait for the PSP 4000. :-)

I know your secret


+ TwiztedR3DHead on July 28th, 2009 at 3:31 pm said:

daamn im gettin this


+ SpearrO on July 28th, 2009 at 5:10 pm said:

If only Kratos were in the PS3 version. Just as far as future guest appearances go, maybe a little Altair/Ezio or the Prince of Persia? Until then I guess we have the character editor ;)


+ eaferrari24 on July 28th, 2009 at 5:28 pm said:

@20 that happened to me when i had adblock plus enabled on this website.. i put this website on the ignore list.. and it stopped flashing like that.. give that a shot if you have adblock plus installed


+ Xoonaka on July 28th, 2009 at 7:33 pm said:

Can you guys ditch the mic? It looks kind of silly when you hold it there for them and nod occasionally.

I don’t know how you’re supposed to look though. Maybe that’s why most interviews on TV only show the person talking.


+ EmperorKorea on July 28th, 2009 at 8:59 pm said:

so is soulcalibur one word now?


+ PoloM29 on July 28th, 2009 at 11:17 pm said:

Kratos looks to be one of the best alternate characters of the outside world….lookd very interesting


+ zombie_56 on July 29th, 2009 at 6:24 am said:

i borrowed my friends psp for awhile i will buy this just to play as kratos for a month


+ poweredbyzen on July 29th, 2009 at 9:05 am said:

+ squeekeefreek on July 29th, 2009 at 10:53 am said:

that video of kratos and cassandra on the computer in the background looked awesome


+ campos3452 on July 29th, 2009 at 11:45 am said:

I’m definately getting this. Looks awesome.


+ zigirot on July 29th, 2009 at 3:11 pm said:

Hmm, a very nice looking SC game let alone a PSP game. A lot of fanboys will definitely enjoy this installment, including myself.


+ Den_of_Iniquity on July 30th, 2009 at 10:29 am said:
