Spawn and Heihachi playable in Soulcalibur 2 HD

Both characters available on Xbox 360 and PS3, confirms Namco

Both Spawn and Heihachi will be playable characters in SoulCalibur 2 HD Online, but will no longer be platform-exclusive.

Soulcalibur 2 was originally released on Xbox, PS2 and GameCube, with each version packing an exclusive character associated with their respective platform. Heihachi was the PS2-only character, Spawn was exclusive to Xbox.


But publisher Namco Bandai has confirmed today that both characters will be playable in both versions of the HD remake.

The newly-titled Soulcalibur 2 HD Online is on its way to PS3 and Xbox 360 for an autumn 2013 release. As the title suggests, the port's new HD visuals will be accompanied by a brand new online mode that will let players face off via PSN/Xbox Live.

A trailer released at the time of its announcement showed off first gameplay footage of the title in its new high definition skin.
