Namco Bandai have announced today that Soul Calibur II HD Online is now available as an Arcade game on the Xbox Live marketplace, as well as the PlayStation Network for PlayStation 3.
Developed by Project Soul, the elite development team at Namco Bandai Studios, Soul Calibur II HD Online reimagines the beloved title by adding online multiplayer support to the title as well as vibrant updated graphics to take advantage of modern high definition TVs. Heralded as one of the best fighting games of all-time and a genre reference, Soul Calibur II is back on consoles with crisp new high definition graphics and all-new online modes in celebration for its 10 year anniversary. Fans can now fight back with their legendary heroes, Spawn and Heihachi, for the first time ever playable on both platforms, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
Soul Calibur II is easily one of the best in the series and to see it brought back to life again is a great thank you to the highly supportive Soul Calibur community.
Soul Calibur is the ultimate weapons based fighter and has long since been my favourite since it started its life as Soul Edge in Arcades and on the PlayStation 1. Anyone else going to be downloading this today?
Thank you Namcobandai for providing us with this information.
