Soul Calibur XBLA Based on Dreamcast Version

When the original Soul Calibur was announced as an upcoming Xbox Live Arcade title yesterday, it was not immediately clear whether the project would be ported from the excellent Dreamcast edition or the less-than-perfect arcade rendition.

We checked with Namco on the matter, and can now happily confirm that it is the former case.

"The game is based on the Dreamcast version with no major additions or subtractions," said a Namco Bandai representative to Shacknews.

Look for the 'Cast-derived, high-def Soul Calibur to hit Xbox Live sometime this summer.
