PSA: Soulcalibur 2 HD Online is out now

Now that we got reviews of those new consoles out of the way, it's time to start talking about old games. Specifically, an 11 year old game. Soulcalibur 2 HD Online is now available on PS3 and Xbox 360 for $19.99.

A Wii U release is "not impossible," Namco Bandai has said, but "it depends on the demand for it." And it seems unlikely we'll see a PS4 or Xbox One release, too.

Soulcalibur 2 HD Online for Wii U 'depends on demand'

Soulcalibur 2 is much-beloved by series fans. So much so, in fact, that Namco Bandai is working on an HD re-release of the title. We asked Soulcalibur producer Masaaki Hoshino about why he thought this particular entry has such a devoted following. "That was the first time we did multiplatform," he told us, pointing out that the franchise was first introduced to many players with that release.

When Soulcalibur 2 originally released, it featured platform-specific characters. For the HD re-release, two of those formerly-exclusive characters are included in both Xbox and PlayStation versions of the game. However, Nintendo's HD console isn't being graced with a release--denying fans the chance to play as Link on Wii U.

Soulcalibur 2 HD Online includes both Heihachi and Spawn

Soulcalibur 2 took advantage of the console wars by giving Gamecube, Xbox, and PlayStation 2 players different exclusive characters. So, what characters will the upcoming HD remake for Xbox Live and PlayStation Network feature? Apparently, both Spawn and Heihachi will be available in the arcade re-release--regardless of which platform you play on.

"Originally exclusive guest characters for their respective platforms when the game was originally released in 2003, this will be the first time the two characters will be playable together on the same console," Namco Bandai points out in the announcement.
