Soulcalibur II is definitely a fan favorite installment in the Soulcalibur franchise, so we're assuming more than a few gamers are looking forward to its re-release. Namco Bandai announced that the HD enhanced version for the PS3 and Xbox 360 will land on November 19th, which puts it directly in between the console launches of the PS4 and Xbox One.
They also revealed a $19.99 price tag, which seems a little steep in our opinion, even with the addition of online gameplay.
Read on for the announcement and check out the new Mitsurugi vs Maxi gameplay video.
