I was at the Namco event at CES 2008 when they announced that Yoda and Darth Vader would be in the game. Now, in this case, like at many press events, there was an open bar. So I had been drinking. When they had the guy in the giant Darth Vader suit followed by stormtroopers walking around the lounge the event was in, I called a good friend of mine who was a huge Soul Calibur fan.
"Nick, Nick! There's going to be Darth Vader and Yoda in Soul Calibur IV!" "...John, you're fucking drunk."
He thought I was trying to troll him.
