New Star Wars character in Soul Calibur IV

No, not Leia with enhanced bazookas, but Darth Vader's apprentice from The Force Unleashed

Namco Bandai has added another Star Wars character to Soul Calibur IV, revealing that Darth Vader's Secret Apprentice from The Force Unleashed will turn up for a ruck.

If you didn't already know, the Secret Apprentice is a character created for this years' Star Wars cross-media event that covers some of the timeline between Episode III and IV. Now, according to GameSpot, he's snuck in to yet other title.

Whilst we're not entirely keen that the Soul Calibur franchise is becoming more and more a just Star Wars fighting game with each passing day, it does mean that there now will be two lightsaber-equipped characters in both the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions.

Although given the usual titillation in the series, we wish they'd just put Leia in there.
