Kratos to Swing the Clubs of Chaos in Hot Shots Golf

134 0

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.

  • I have an idea! What about Kratos in High Velocity Bowling! This way he can pwn in another great PSN title!

  • Schitthammer

    Chris, this is awesome. Any plans for other characters? Nariko or Snake, maybe?

  • Win!

    Can’t wait for Thursday…hopefully he’s only $.99 like the other golfers

  • LOL but I think he looks too short and the red paint looks too pixely.

  • hey guys first post on this blog!

    any chance of any Trophy support patch coming for this game?

  • How much will the download be, and will this be availabe to the PAL regions tomorrow to?

  • Lex_Yayo_407

    This looks crazy, but i am gonna have to get this game and play with Kratos.

  • Haha, wooow that is awesome :) Very cool…

  • SantanaClaus89

    This is awesome. If he’s .99 cents like the other characters I will definately buy him.

  • XxBigP123xX

    By the gods….

  • this is awesome, i’m in. Fore!

  • He’s *so* cute; I just want to pinch his little godslaying cheeks! O_O

  • This is beyond awesome. Any chance for throphy support? Pretty please!
    I’m going to download this as soon as I get my PS3 back from repairs. Thanks for supporting your game after all this time! Great work!

  • 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.

  • There were rumors about this?

  • Where is his partner? nariko? xD

  • Way to exploit Kratos. /:

  • 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.

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

  • Looks awesome!!

    Making any progress adding voice chat to the game?

  • Seanscythe2

    Kratos Camo and Mask in MGS4 is a must!

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

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

  • Captain Fury

    glad to see Sony using their popular IPs in other games! love it

    please make a Ratchet one next!(he was in a HSG before) in his awesome QFB clothes :)

  • Phoenix8387

    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.

  • Too cool! lol :)

  • oh HELL YEAH! lol. i loved Jak & Ratchet in HSG Fore. this is the $#!t.

    looks like i’ll be getting my golf on. i put this game on the shelf a while ago. lol.

  • FlashFlooder

    Wow, this is awesome.

    I love HSG Out of Bounds.

    Could you PLEASE try to patch in custom soundtracks? It would be perfect for this game.

    And more downloadable courses!!!
