I would appreciate if this remake had all three exclusive characters, Heihachi Mishima, Spawn, and Link in the same fucking game.
SCII is my favorite in the series... and don't get me wrong i'll probably jump on this :) but honestly there are so many fighting game HD remakes already and there are tons of remakes i'd much rather see (oddworld: stranger's wrath, max payne 1 + 2, psychonauts, and mercenaries to name just a few...and i'm leaving out my list of nintendo IPs ;) - especially considering SC2 is BC w/360 and the graphics hold up pretty well...only thing missing is live support, and it's likely to come at the expense of local multi :(
Oh Taki, how I've missed you... T^T
But no Link means that I'm going to have to find a new character to use during weapon master . And most of my best characters aren't in this our aren't playable in the campaign. No Siegfried or Rock and Lizardman is unavailable outside of versus.
Oh boy, another re-release where I get to see how crappy the graphics were... in HD! :D Seriously people, if we're going to do an HD re-release, why not just hand the title off to a new company and have them put it on a modern engine like Bungie and 343 did with Halo? We know the gameplay is great, now let's amp up the graphics! -_-
Played the controller off my console back in the day playing this game it was soo good but I still love soul blade over soul caliber...
I'm surprised that they are bringing Soul Caliber 2 back considering that this version will be absent of arguably the most important aspect of the originals released for the GameCube/Xbox/PS2- exclusive characters.
I also think they should've made a WiiU version with Link. I mean the GC version of this game sold the best because everyone wants to play as a kickass adult Link.
Also just to be fair, why couldn't Spawn be in this as well? Did Todd McFarlane not give them the rights this time.
I don't even own a Wii U yet but I think it should have gotten this. Link is the only reason why this game should be redid. If not then just do SC3 HD. It's a better game. It's like Capcom releasing CvSNK 2 as a classic and not a HD remake with online. That's two misfires from the fighting game scene.
Namco Bandai make Soul Calibur 3 HD
Capcom make Capcom vs SNK 2 HD (ONLINE)... or Rival Schools 1,2 (classics or HD don't matter)... or somehow get Tatsunoko vs Capcom rights back and HD or port that.
Shame on Namco/Bandai for not bringing this to Wii U. This particular game already has a rich history with Nintendo! Blatant blacklisting?
SC2 was a great game. It's also where Namdai started killing the franchise :(
Why couldn't they just keep things pure? Not buying.
Wall jumps, crouch movement, while-landing attacks, soul charge, cancels, meter-less repels, actual movement speed, and a s*** ton of extra moves. No, it's not a sequel. It's the SC game from 10 years ago!!
It's about time, Nam-dai. Been waiting a long time for this announcement. :D This, and Sould Edge HD. ;)
Now, where's the "Ace Combat: Infinity for Xbox 360 and PC!" announcement? :/
Soul Calibur 2 HD? OMG. OMG. OMG. OMG. YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Bring back CONQUEST MODE! YESSSSSS!!! PLEASE! OMG.
Reason I went with the GC version back then was because of Link. I already know what Heihachi plays like since I played him in his games and cross overs. I had never played Spawn before in a video game, wish they aloud namco to use him for dlc.
Just to let you know the Original Xbox version was in 720p, so they really aren't doing much at all, this is kind of a cash grab. I think they even blurred the "SD" part in the video comparison. It would be cool if they added all three exclusive characters to all versions they make.
I can understand why they wouldn't include link (obvious Nintendo copyrights and such) but no spawn? wow...
This is really nice to see; I was a god at this game.
Xbox and GameCube versions were, by far, the best to experience while playing.
ROTFL. I saw absolutely no difference between the HD and SD versions. This game is retarded. Every SC game is identical except for a few characters, maps, and controls, so why would anyone want to pay good money for an "HD" version of a game they already have? At least use the graphics from SC V for crying out loud since all of the characters are in it. This is the worst move they could have possibly made. Just call it SC Online and drop the II part and use actually GOOD graphics. You're embarrassing us. Anyone who actually pays for this is just dumb.
Now they can stop making sc games since this will never be topped. Kind of disappointed is not coming to wii u, I still have my gc disc...
@DisturbedFan789 Get over it you graphics hoe jeez the ps4/xboxone our on there way the graphics look fine and btw the new Halo still was looking junky 343 did a crap job for a re make
@Slagar I enjoy Soul Calibur still. 3 is my fav though.
@Slagar Well i agree with u me not buying either.
@DarthLod Because a lot of people think SCII is a much better game than the Soul games that have online support, and since the series keeps removing moves, mechanics and characters, this is a chance to play a good SC game online.
@DarthLod They want to cash in on that nostalgia. SC III HD remake will be down the line in a few years too, I bet.
@NicholasT33 If your talking about Heihachi, Spawn and Necrid being in for the ps3 and 360 version, then yes, not going to see link in those version.
@NicholasT33 You can get 720p through AV Cables? Last I checked High Definition could only be obtained through High Definition cables.
@Temujin_basic or get a Xbox 1... and a Original MS Component cable (most 3rd party cables suck...)
but ya i would use the Dolphin Emu... The GC version is the best and you can even play in 1080p not like this Download version which only runs at 720p. the exact resolution the XBox 1 version is running on xD
@Temujin_basic and online part?
@Temujin_basic That and the gamecube version of Soul Calibur 2 on Dolphin emu, looks absolutely stunning
@Patohua1 Because it's online. Everyone seems to be only noticing the HD in the title. The SCII game that came out 10 years ago wasn't an online game. That's why. And a lot of characters in SCII aren't in SCV actually. SoulCalibur has changed a lot since SCII, and hardly any of it for the better. That's why. Short of them making a SCVI that returns to the foundation established in SE,SC, and SCII, and forgetting everything about the last couple of games, this is actually the 'best' move they could have made.
@BillyColeman @DisturbedFan789 NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!! If I still had a standard TV, trust me, I wouldn't care, but I don't. In the last year I built a gaming PC and bought a 50" HDTV to use it on. I've been replaying console games on it with max settings and I want MOAR!!!!! New games are so hit-and-miss these days, let's completely re-do the old games, not just polish them up for HD, but give them better graphics! The gameplay is already fantastic, let's make it look better!!!
@wookie560 @NicholasT33 You could buy HD cables for the original Xbox. Also you could Play SCII on your 360 with the HD cables. http://forum.cdrinfo.pl/attachments/f105/44512d1199009138-artykul-xbx-podstawowe-informacje-o-konsoli-high-definition-av-pack-contents.jpg
@wookie560 @NicholasT33 i have to ask you, where are you from? because in the PAL regions (i'm from Germany thus from the PAL region) the HD funktions of the XBOX where deactivated through its firmware... ya i don't know why exactly... i mean... what? xD
but thats how it was. i have a modded Xbox as i said and thats why i can even turn my PAL Xbox 1s resolution to 1080i.
all the Pal versions of the games still support the HD resolutions.
i am asking for the region because back at the end of the last console generation many 3rd party companies released such stupid SD to HD cables that do not enhance the picture quality and they also dont work for HD output on the Xbox 1.
if you have a NTSC or a modded PAL Xbox 1 and plug in one of the real HD component cables, you can choose 720p and 1080i in the console settings. the Main Menu of the Xbox will then be in the chosen resolution and about 12-15 games actualle support HD resolutions.
one of them is SC2 ;) the other as i mentioned is Enter the Matrix which is running in (for the year 2001) stunning 1080i
@wookie560 @NicholasT33 Component cables are even able to deliver 1080p video.
and the cables for the Xbox 1 are directly from MS its not HDMi its a HD component calble, like the ones the first generation 360 used!
and SC2 was running in full 720p! back on the XBox 1. it was not upscaled or anything it was 100% true 720p!!!
and if you play it on the 360 it also runs in true 720p native resolution! Its very easy to see if a game gets upscaled (like CoD) or if it is running natively on that resolution and trust me, the freaking game is right next to me on my desk, i pleyed it like fuck for 10 years now. IT IS 720p!
My Xbox 1 is modded. you can even play low bitrate 720p Xvid files on it! it runs N64 emulators in 720p and even 1080i (but that does not even work well with Mario 64 xD )
@NicholasT33 @wookie560 That pack does not give you the 720p quality you are expecting. Its a component to HDMI converter, it just converts the signal to digital. Its like Buying a High definition DVD player and saying its the same as Blu Ray. While the original game does state that its capable of 720p quality, no xbox at the time is capable of bringing that quality true. Although you do bring a valid point up about playing the game on the current Xbox 360. Might look into that.
