Although the game is a remake, there are several ‘firsts’ when it comes to SoulCalibur II HD Online
. The title of the game gives away half of it; this is the first time SoulCalibur II
will be presented in high-definition. You’ll also be able to fulfill your soul by challenging fighters around the globe with online multiplayer. The game also marks the first time that guest fighters Heiachi
are available to do battle amongst each other, as they were previously console exclusives upon the original release.
After an initial announcement trailer
and subsequent releases of screenshots
, we’re now treated to another first in the form of a gameplay video for the HD remake. Namco is privy to point out that proceeding video isn’t the final build of the game.
SOULCALIBUR II HD Online is still in development and the video is compressed in order to fit the youtube format. The image quality here does NOT reflect the final quality of the game.
With that said, let’s check out some of the raw gameplay between top SoulCalibur
players ‘DTN’ & ‘Mark Nikil’, who happen to be brothers as well. DTN won the EVO 2k3 SoulCalibur II
title and his brother Mark Nikil is his coach and eternal rival. They choose Nightmare and Mitsurugi to carry out their sibling rivalry.
SoulCalibur II HD Online
is still marked with a vague fall release date.
