PS Store Today: NBA Live 14, Soul Calibur II HD, Need For Speed: Rivals, More

The first PlayStation Store update in the post-PS4 era brings with it the digital release of NBA Live 14. EA’s first next gen basketball sim boasts a new “revolutionary physics-based dribbling system” known as BounceTek as “fresh content and challenges” delivered daily.

Over on the PS3 side of the store, gamers will be able to download another major EA release, Need For Speed: Rivals. The racer will be joined by Farming Simulator, a… er… farming simulator, and Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON’T KNOW, the latest adventure starring Finn and Jake.

The newly rechristened PS3 Digital Games storefront will feature the return of Namco Bandai’s Soul Calibur universe with Soul Calibur II HD Online. This re-release includes every Soul Calibur II character as well Heichachi (of Tekken fame) and Spawn (of Spawn fame).

More information about all of these games (and many more) can be found after the break. And as always, a complete rundown of this week’s new game add-ons can be found at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)

Soul Calibur II HD Online burns onto PSN, XBLA on November 20

Namco Bandai has announced that Soul Calibur II HD Online will make its PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade debut on November 20. The acclaimed fighting game has been priced at $19.99 and, as the title states, will include online play and a high definition graphical upgrade.

Soul Calibur II HD Online will also feature two of the three console exclusive characters it was released with in 2003. Both downloadable editions of the game will include Heihachi (originally exclusive to the PS2 version) and Spawn (originally exclusive to the Xbox version). It’s unlikely the GameCube-exclusive character, Link, will ever make the jump to Soul Calibur II HD Online.

Spawn confirmed for Soul Calibur II HD Online

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.

Soul Calibur II HD Online will be available this Fall

Does your soul still burn? Then I suggest watching this beautiful trailer for Namco Bandai’s Soul Calibur II HD Online, a PlayStation Network/Xbox Live Arcade remake of the arcade classic. As the title states, this version of Soul Calibur will include high definition graphics and online battles.

Scheduled for release this Fall, Soul Calibur II HD Online will include all of your favorite “Soul Warriors” and Heihachi Mishima, the Tekken character who crossed-over with the PS2 version of the game. That’s nice and all, but why isn’t Namco Bandai working on a Wii U release featuring Link?
