inFamous' heroic psychopath Cole MacGrath will be a bonus character in the PlayStation 3 version of Street Fighter X Tekken, just as Kratos from God of War is starring in the PS3 version of Mortal Kombat.
Seth Killian, Strategic Marketing Director of Online & Community at Capcom was interviewed by Siliconera behind the decision to use Cole.
"Discussions between Sony and Capcom came to it. They were looking for a character and Capcom got excited about Cole," explained Killian. "It seemed like the timing was about right with Infamous 2 coming out around this time and it seemed a character that had a lots of possibilities, in terms of gameplay. Obviously, there is a big range of moves and I think we fell in love with the electric tornado like everyone else should of. There was his shockwave in Infamous 2 and we liked that, as well."
No guest character has been announced for the Xbox 360 or PC version. It's sort of bleak for the 360 version, since Microsoft doesn't like putting its flagship characters in serious harm's way, which is why neither Master Chief or Marcus Fenix appears in Mortal Kombat. A SPARTAN did appear in Dead or Alive 4, and Spawn appeared in the 360 version of Soul Calibur 3, so you never know.
