Namco Bandai revealed at their San Diego Comic-Con panel that their fighting game SoulCalibur II will receive an HD makeover and is set to launch this autumn on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, but there was no mention of a Wii U release. The re-release, called SoulCalibur II HD Online, is based on the PlayStation 2 edition (this means that Heihachi Mishima from the Tekken series will be a playable character), and will contain all the original features and then some, such as an online mode over PlayStation Network and Xbox Live.
With no mention of the Wii U to be seen, Nintendo supporters are likely going to be disappointed to hear that the chances of Link making an appearance are slim.When asked specifically about Link, Namco gave no comment. While it may simply be a licensing issue, Namco never announced a Wii U edition, which further complicates things as Nintendo would be keen to see the title released on its own console as well.
Is Namco Bandai doing the right thing by staying away from the Wii U? Let us know in the comments!
