    Smile System exclusive Soul Calibur 2 characters revealed

    Namco Japan announced awhile ago, four new characters to the Soul Calibur 2 family. One new character named Necrid (a Todd Macfarlane creation) will be appearing on all three systems, while Link, Spawn and Heihachi will appear on the GameCube, Xbox and PlayStation 2 respectively. Namco announced they will release the home version of Soul Calibur 2 for PS2, GameCube and Xbox in Japan on March 27.

    Additionally there is a new mode for all three systems that seems to be similar to the classic Edge Master mode found in the PSX version of Soul Blade/Edge. Apparently it will be some sort of RPG mode where you can collect various weapons and attributes for weapons and them use them in other modes such as Arcade and Versus mode.

    Here are some images to hold you over until more details come through.

    GameCube exclusive - Link

    Yeah, I know it's old news. But not that old. This was revealed on January 15th. For the last month, I've been extremely busy at school. So I never really had any time to look this info up, until now.

    Besides, not all of the XBA members know this info. No biggy

    I personally think Link is the best....and the PS2 one is definitely the dumbest.

    No way man, Spawn's killer!! Even though he looks sweet too, Link definitely takes second place for this one.

    Personally, I think Spawn should have his wicked a$$ cape and should use his chains and spells for weapons. Oh well

    But, you're right about the PoS2 character being the worst

    Agreed.

    Even w/o the cape he is still a complete bad a$$.

    Why would they pick Heihachi for the PoS2 version?

    If anyone, I would've though they'd pick that dude from Devil May Cry. He's the only sweet lookin' guy I could think of for the PoS2.

    Whatever, Playstation got screwed over on this one. Ha ha

    Ya, Dante would have been a good pick. Heihachi is already in a fighting game - they are definitely screwed.

    Devil May Cry 2 looks wicked!! I hope my best friend buys it for his PoS2. It's one of the few games I like for the crap console.

    Actually, month old news is pretty old. Its ok though cause I hadn't ever seen the pics of that Necrid guy. He looks pretty cool. Thanks for the pics.

    I think Link looks the best and fits the best into the game. Spawn is second IMO. And I think we can all agree the PS2 got the raw end of the deal here.

    I'm still puzzled as to why they chose Spawn for Xbox though. Oh well, he looks pretty good.

    I've never seen the vids before, so this is new to me. I think Link's got the best moves with the ability to have projectiles -arrows and bombs.
