Out of the complete Soul Calibur 4 cast, 31 characters have been revealed like Ivy and Tira, but we thought it was time to list the Soul Calibur 4 characters below that have been confirmed for the upcoming July 29th, 2008, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 fighting game.
Darth Vader and Yoda, characters from the Star Wars universe, are confirmed to be playable guest characters but exclusive to different platforms.
Vader will be on the PS3 and Yoda will be on the Xbox 360, however it was stated in issue 179 of GameInformer magazine that "Namco was nice enough to concede that the second characters may be available for download on the respective consoles at a later date."

29. Scheherazade (bonus character designed by guest artist Yutaka Izubuchi)
30. Shura (bonus character designed by guest artist Hiroya Oku)
31. Yoda (Star Wars guest character on the Xbox 360 version)
On top of all these characters, Namco Bandai's game director Katsutoshi Sasaki has said that Create-a-Character will return from Soul Calibur 3, and will allow customized and created characters to be playable in multiplayer mode (in Special VS online as well).

With all those guest characters (plus more to come) as well as all the official standard characters, I'm fearing that Namco won't have it so balanced when it comes out. Hopefully they'll release patches if it isn't.
