Namco-Bandai Announces Soulcalibur II HD Online!

So there has been a furor during these past few days after it was discovered that Namco-Bandai filed a trademark for "Soulcalibur Lost Swords". Until now, we didn't really know what it meant. Companies file trademarks all the time, often just to cover themselves.

Could Lost Swords be an upgrade to Soulcalibur V? An RPG side-story like Soulcalibur Legends? Or perhaps a free-to-play version of Soulcalibur like Tekken Revolution? Well Namco-Bandai just wrapped up their Comic-can panel... and... nothing. No announcement of Soulcalibur Lost Swords. However, Namco-Bandai has announced an HD version of Soulcalibur II will be coming to PSN and XBL this fall.

The HD release will be from the PS2 version, and include Heihachi and Necrid as guest characters. Link and Spawn will not be featured. Included with the resolution upgrade will be several new modes, including online multiplayer! Masaaki Hoshino is serving as producer for this project, rather than Hisaharu Tago who has been responsible for Soulcalibur V.
I don't need to even talk about how exciting this news is; but let me just say that when it does come out, the 24/7 stream will be moved over to it.

I'm so excited. I get a chance to play SC2...with real people and not the AI! Finally!! Only downside: I gotta learn EVERYTHING all over again. I played this when I used to button mash blindly into oblivion. I don't know a single damn move lmao. It'll be like a brand new game to me. I dont care though. Still can't wait!
 
This is great news and can't wait.

As for SC Lost Souls I'm hoping lost souls is referring to all character thru out the SC series to be included into the new game. Would love to have the SCV gameplay with everyone included rolled into a more polished product.

Big thanks to Namco for keeping the SC series alive.
 
I don't know how to give a analysis to this information, it is a rather smart move, since almost everyone seems to be very happy, and Soul Calibur II always had a enormous fanbase, but due to many styles there were refined in III......besides the new Street Fighter announcement.....oh well. Go Soul Calibur II I guess.

It would be interesting to see characters with similar styles get differentiated a bit like Taki & Natsu, but both characters should be viable not one over the other.
 
Woo sucky maxi back to the fore. Hopefully the release will be based on the Japanese or na version do the smug euro players will finally know the true pain.
