A lot of you thought the other day's post for Snake and Raiden in Soulcalibur IV was newsworthy, so we're going to bring you another one of these character creation posts. This time, it's that Greek dude with a temper problem -- Kratos. We know a lot of you got excited over the rumor, and after it got shot down, your excitement died with it.

So, we propose that if you really want the gruff voiced warrior battling it out with the guys and (well-endowed) ladies of Namco's Soulcalibur IV, then make him yourself. We've posted instruction on how to make him (and some more pics, too) after the break.
So, here's a laundry list of what creation pieces you'll need as well as instruction on how to edit them. If you follow the directions carefully, you'll end up with a pretty decent Kratos look-a-like. Given the tool set, this is pretty much as close as you can get! We hope you enjoy creating and fighting with Kratos. Keep in mind, you'll have to unlock certain pieces of equipment, so don't be surprised if you can't find certain pieces. Just keep playing the game and complete "Battle Records" to gain more equipment.
