SoulCalibur II is getting an online HD re-release for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 later this year, and Namco Bandai has released a healthy dose of gameplay footage.

The video below features an unedited battle between Nightmare and Mitsurugi. I won't spoil the ending for you.

Namco Bandai isn't ready to commit to a release date for SoulCalibur II HD Online, but it will be this year, and original guest characters Heihachi and Spawn will be included. Unsurprisingly, Link will not be making an appearance, but that doesn't mean we can't hold out hope for a future Wii U version of the game with the hero of time.
