SoulCalibur II HD Online Does Battle on PSN and XBLA this Fall

Soulcalibur2_HD_Online

Returning to commemorate the game’s 10th anniversary, the legendary Soul Warriors of SoulCalibur II will be back in action in SoulCalibur II HD Online, unveiled today for digital download release this fall on PS3 and Xbox 360.

All of the 10-year-old fighting game’s original modes–Arcade, Survival, VS Battle, Time Attack, Survival, Team Battle, Practice and Weapon Master–will return, in addition to remastered HD graphics and brand new online modes. So, pretty much a straight port with a couple new bells and whistles.

Original PS2 guest fighter Heihachi appears in the game’s announcement trailer (scroll down, hit play), but Spawn from the Xbox version is nowhere to be seen. Obviously without a planned Wii U eShop release, Link won’t be making an appearance this time around.
