It's possible I guess. R2D2 just seems like it would have no real way of attacking with the "stun arm" and whatever the saber launcher is. I expect any downloadable character to cost $5 since Namco wants to make a lot of money. They might as well include 3PO just for kicks.

Whehehe r2d2 in SC2. That's the same as the Star Wars characters in the game "Lego: Indiana Jones"

Holy crap, that's right, Nariko would be incredible in SC IV.

I'm a pretty big Starwars fanboy sometimes and got real exited when i saw that r2 would be in the game, but... damn, Nariko would just be... whew.

Honestly, i'm almost amazed that she isn't an exclusive, that's kind of a bad call on Sony's part [how much worse could the licensing really be for that compared to adding more Star Wars characters].

hmm, I can't really see r2d2 fitting into the whole soul calibur thing. I would much prefer kratos from God of War. Does anyone know if r2d2 is exclusive to either ps3 or 360?

Too much Starwars! I like Starwars, wookies luke and all, but i miss those "exclusive" Characters like Link in SC2 for NGC. I really would prefer playing kratos or the girl of Heavenly sword than r2d2.
