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.

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.

An earlier video pitted Nightmare vs. Mitsurugi in a close three-round bout.

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