UPDATE 2 – Games HQ Media recently uploaded the trailer that was shown during Namco Bandai’s panel. Check it out below.
UPDATE – Famitsu has released a handful of images they captured during the announcement, providing looks at the game’s logo, differences between the two versions, and more.
Namco Bandai just annoucned during their panel at San Diego Comic-Con that they are planning to release an updated version of Soulcalibur 2. Titled Soulcalibur II HD Online, this game will feature all the modes from the original PlayStation 2 version of the game, and will of course include a special appearance by Tekken’s own Heihachi Mishima. And, much like the name suggests, it will include full online functionality.
Many of you may remember that Soulcalibur 2 originally featured exclusive guest characters depending for each console it was released on (Link from Legend of Zelda was included on the Gamecube, while the Xbox version featured Spawn). When asked whether or not those two fighters would be appearing in this port alongside Heihachi, newly-promoted producer Masaaki Hoshino said that they had nothing to reveal at this time and fans will have to wait for further announcements.
Soulcalibur II HD Online is set to release this fall for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
