PG:Namco Bandai offered a first look at the next Soulcalibur game at San Diego Comic-Con today, a high-definition update to Soulcalibur 2.
Nintendo fans would have paid for this game on Wii U with Link as an exclusive character
They can blame Nintendo. I mean Namco is helping to make Smash there should be no reason for SC2 not to come to wiiU if Nintendo gave incentive for it or covered the porting costs. Pubs/Devs are in this to make money and with how the wiiU third party game sales are right now, i dont blame Namco for not taking the risk. SC2HD for Evo! Really hope they give the PS3 version a better bonus character then Heihachi he was the worst out of the 3.
I wish Spawn was still in, Im betting he was removed since he wasnt shown for the HD version
They didnt want to comment on Spawn or Link they are def not coming back if you ask me. Ps3 version:Kratos 360 version:???
It's obviously all rights issues. The Link rights are obvious. I'm sure Todd McFarlane would sign off again, if anything specific outside of Namco is stopping Spawn from being in for both platforms I'd bet every dime I have that it's MicroSoft. I'm sure they originally had to pay for that exclusivity and they aren't they types (especially these days) to give up that exclusivity without a legal fight, which Namco certainly isn't going to bother with........so Heihachi it is. I wish companies weren't so petty and actually cared most about giving all gamers what they wanted. Ideally for all potential customers of this game, and something really special for all the customers of the original game, would be if a deal could be worked out to have all 3 characters on all versions of the game. Obviously that would never happen, but one can dream. Link was the character I wanted to play as most back then, and Spawn more then Heihachi. I only had a PS2 though.
link is the reason i bought the gc version over the others but i'll get the ps3 one this time.
Would have preferred a remake of Soul Calibur 1 honestly.
SC1 was the bigger game but SC2 was the better one. Huge improvement over SC1, loved the original on Dreamcast though
SC2 was the best one of the series. I like the variety provided by the okie weapons. Knightmare's Soul Calibur (from SC2) is also the most broken weapon in gaming.
Only the best fighting game ever(in my opinion at least) redone in HD. :) so happy. The tag team mode for sc2 was the best
Well, enjoy it... You and I both know there's gonna be some jackass "purist" out there complaining about how they screwed it up.
meh, true but you can't please everyone. I'm content as long as the team mode is still there.
As much as I'd want a Wii U version for Link, I would rather get a PS3 version because it will be MUCH more active online.
I'd personally have prefered the content-filled SC3 with a fix to it's save game corruption issues. It was an amazing game, hidden bosses, lots of weapons, costumes and character unlocks and the amazing Chronicles of the Sword mode. SC2 just seems a bit meh to me.
well i liked some of the characters they put in sc3 like tira and setsuke (i think i spelled it right), I personally liked sc2 more because of the character team mode. It was the one thing i missed in the newer soul caliburs because it was the most fun to play
Couldnt agree more! Loved SC3s contents! Played the game for hours!
SC2 is the best in the series, SC3 was good but it was ridiculously unbalanced. The producer even said he didn't care about balancing issues because it went straight to consoles. If you play the Arcade version of SC3 you will see some serious nerfs and scaled damaging.
Such a shame there's no Wii U version. Would have been great to play as Link again. But hey, SCII was a great game on any platform I played it on, so good news.
Fantastic game and with online multiplayer its well worth it for the fans. Wished they done the same with DBZ Budokai 3 HD
Man I always wanted to play as Spawn. Sadly, I highly doubt that they still have the license to use him. Link was cool though. I was pretty good with him. This is a rather unexpected announcetment.
So this is MP only?? seems like a dumb question lol Anyway, i really hope this makes me get into the SC series, SC5 made hate it
It may sound childish but, no Link, no buy.
I'm with you right there. Link made SC2 better, simple as that. He was a somewhat cheap character, but it WAS LINK! Aside from Link, SC2 did have a slew of extra stuff to do and weapons to unlock...wait..They aren't going to...no...please god no! [All unlockable content (weapons from edge master mode) from the original version turn into paid DLC to make this new online game seem cheaper.] I really hope they don't do that. Turn all the unlockables into PAID Disc/data Locked Content.
Agree. Everybody I talked to, liked the GCN version the best because of him. I wonder why they aren't making a Wiiu version. The Nintendo version sold the best too. http://www.ign.com/articles...
No wii u version? I mean for any other multi platform game I don't care but the gamecube version of ss2 was my fav as well as most ss2 players going by sales... I don't even have a wiiu and I would buy this game for when i eventually get it. This rly sucks.
sc2 not ss2. -_-
A thousand times YES!!! Played the hell out of this on PS2 and this was the game that got me into Soul Calibur. I hope they do this with Soul Calibur III next. Those are the two I enjoy the most.
Damn Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate early september and now SC2 Online , a few months later im Hyped fighting game resurgence is right around the corner ... im going to laugh because i truly believe this will push more units than there latest SC
