The lights are on
SoulCalibur II HD Online, the upgrade that takes the 2002 fighting game classic online, is now available to download on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
In honor of the game's re-release, Namco Bandai has put together a launch trailer which shows off the upgraded visuals with side by side comparisons. You'll also see the formerly console exclusive Heihachi and Spawn take each other on. Link from The Legend of Zelda, who was originally exclusive to the GameCube version of SoulCalibur II, is unfortunately and unsurprisingly nowhere to be seen. I am holding out hope that he and SoulCalibur II HD Online will come to Wii U, but Namco Bandai has not announced any plans.
The game is $19.99 for both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. For more on the game, check out additional trailers here and here.

Maybe if it was part of games for gold
Sould've been free for ps+ members.
yeah sweet game, glad they remade it in hd but to pricey when i can dig it out for my older systems. to much to play on the new systems anyway
Loved this game. Spawn was epic!
The graphical upgrade appears to be negligible, the price is double what I would have expected, and as much as I would have liked to play as Spawn, I just can't justify spending money on this. Though I have fond memories, I don't love this entry as much as some (SC3 wss the pinnacle of the series in my opinion) so I'd rather go fire up SC5 again than drop 20 bucks on this.
SC2 was the last good entry in the series. I'll maybe pick this one up... too many fond memories of kicking ass as Spawn. Those axes were awesome.
Could they have reskinned Link as somekind of generic guy, or would that have been too hard?
20 buck seems a bit pricey.
Link was easily the most over-powered character in SC2. He was fun as hell to play as, but he could ring out, knock out and generally outclass just about every other fighter.
Are we going to get a review? I have been playing it all day its a blast. But the matchmaking is pretty lackluster honestly. I just am curious about what gi thinks about it.
