One of the world's most popular weapons-based fighting games
is about to be reborn. SOULCALIBUR II, the third game in the Soul line
(following 1996's Soul Blade and 1999's Soul Calibur), is set for a U.S.
release in August 2003 on all three major platforms (GameCube, Xbox and PS2).
With some 3 million games sold worldwide, the Soul franchise is revered among
fighter-game fans for its graphics and play action. SOULCALIBUR II raises the
bar again with a variety of different game modes and guest characters.
One of the guest characters is - you guessed it - Spawn. The Hell-borne
character, armed with an ax, appears in the Xbox version of the game. The
GameCube version features Link from Legend of Zelda and the PS2 version has
Heihachi from Tekken.
Additionally, all versions of the game feature a brand-new character - Necrid -
created specifically for Soul Calibur 2 by Todd McFarlane Productions.
McFarlane Toys is also producing a line of action figures from the game. More
