Yoda and Vader lands on SoulCalibur IV DLC; not just “hidden in-disc”

Soul Calibur IV - Image 1Yoda and Darth Vader have landed on their respective consoles as downloadables for Namco Bandai‘s SoulCalibur IV (PS3 and Xbox 360). But are they really worth the charge, or are they but another fine sample of in-disc hidden goodies created to lure you to part with your cash?

Yoda and Darth Vader have landed on SoulCalibur IV‘s DLC this morning, albeit separately. The wise, little green guy goes to the Xbox 360, while the notoriously loud exhaler villain treks to the PS3.

While that’s good news, there’s an even better one. The downloadable contents aren’t just hidden on the game discs. We all know how sneaky some devs have been, hiding content on discs and posing it as DLC just to get a few bucks from you in exchange for an unlock code. We’ve seen it happen to Katamari and I doubt any of you were particularly happy to be charged for a 364 KB content that’s already inside the game you bought.

Well that’s not gonna happen here in SCIV. MTV Multiplayer did a bit of snooping around and found that Yoda’s DLC on the Xbox 360 is almost 8 MB in size. Definitely, they did not just hide it in the disc. PSN doesn’t show how big the file is for Darth Vader but it would be pretty safe to assume it’s somewhere near the same range.

Considering the size, we’re guessing that’s a whole lot of playtime with Yoda and Darth Vader.
