Namco Bandai originally announced that Soul Calibur II HD Online would be coming to the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. During the announcement, they confirmed that Heihachi Mishima, a character formerly exclusive to the PS2 version of the game, would make the jump to the PSN and XBLA editions. Now, they’ve revealed that Spawn will escape the clutches of Satan and fight it out in Soul Calibur II’s HD re-release as well.
Todd McFarlane’s hellish creation was originally exclusive to the Xbox version of the game and his inclusion in the HD remake marks the first time that both Heihachi and Spawn have appeared in the same Soul Calibur II game. Sadly, I’m going to assume that the GameCube-exclusive character, Nintendo’s Link, won’t be appearing in Soul Calibur II HD Online.
Call it a hunch.
