E3 2010: Did you spot the hidden secret in the God of War trailer?

Have you seen the trailer for the PSP game, God of War: Ghost of Sparta? If you haven't, watch it. If you have, watch it again because you probably missed something. So go ahead, watch it and watch it closely.

Did you see? In the water, just as the narrator mentions "the marked one", is a reflection of what appears to be a very young Kratos. Observe:

Could this be Kratos as a young sonny jim? Will we see/play some flashback sections that reveal more about the youthhood of Sparta's most angry man?

Also, you'll notice that the trailer is particularly watery. The video's file name is GOSATLANTIS. Some stories say that Atlantis was sunk after a huge volcanic eruption. And, yes, that does look like a huge volcanic eruption in the distance in the trailer. So based on all this evidence, I'd say there's a very good chance that the island in the distance is indeed Atlantis. 

I worked all that out on my own. I'm like a more sexy Jessica Fletcher or something.

    @russman: heavy rain style- go to the mall/kazbah and loose his child?

    Atlatis was a level that was cut from the second game so maybe they can finally get that thing out in all its glory.

    Probably worth pointing out that in God of War III while you're showing Poseidon who's boss one of his battle cries is "Atlantis will be avenged!"or something to that effect. could this mean that Kratos was in some way responsible for Atlantis's destruction?

    Cool! I'll be watching game trailers more closely now, and thinking of the possible "secrets" that could be in them!

    i can add this with peace walker to the very short list of games i'd want if i had a PSP. Also: "more sexy Jessica Fletcher"? Matt Cundy, you are fast becoming my favorite man of words on the internets.

    I thought I read some place that this took place between GoW 1&2.

    Who cares!!! My boyfriend thinks the same with me. He- is eight years older than me, lol. We met online at an age gap dating site [A_g_e_m_i_n_g_l_e @ c.//o.//m]---a nice and free place for Younger- Women and Older Men, or Older Women and Younger Men, to interact with each other. Maybe you wanna check out or- tell your friends

    I think its Krato's brother who was left to die in the mountains.
  • Jalygtra - June 16, 2010 2:44 p.m.

    I guess we now know how cough who cough sunk Atlantis in the first place :P
  • russman - June 16, 2010 2:11 p.m.

    I so much want a prequel to God of War showing Kratos as an innocent young kid playing with kittens, being good to the elderly and slowly getting angered by life. Kittens being run over, not allowed happy meals etc.

    In the original God of War, there was an unlockable scene about Kratos getting separated from his brother at Spartan camp as a child. It was presented as a possible sequel/prequel storyline. Perhaps they are finally expanding on that storyline.

    If you fight as a young Kratos, will it be with sticks tied to ropes around his wrists? Lol
  • uber_geek89 - June 16, 2010 1:37 p.m.

    I did notice the child/young boy image in the water, but I didn't think anything of the volcano in the background. It does make sense that it could be Atlantis though.
