Legends never die!Oh wait…it looks like it has both Soul of the Sword and Soul Sword 2 HD It was pulled from the Microsoft Store over the weekend, and at the time of writing, there is no official word from publisher Bandai Namco.
in a tweet from Jon Cartwrightlater confirmed by iGamesNews, and it appears that both games have been pulled from the digital storefront, meaning you can’t buy them and add them to your account now if you didn’t buy them before.
You can check out both games – each listed as unavailable in the link.
Given that both games are playable on the Xbox One (and by extension the Xbox Series X/S), it’s odd that these games have been removed.
We recently saw Sega announce plans to pull all of its classic Sonic games off the shelves ahead of the June 23 launch of Sonic Origins. Is Bandai Namco planning some sort of classic Soul Calibur series anytime soon, causing the game to be pulled? It remains to be seen.
If you’re eager to experience Soul Calibur 2 HD online for yourself – maybe you want some achievements or some good multiplayer action – you can still buy a digital code from GAME that will allow you to download the game to your account. It’s not as easy as going through the Microsoft Store, but if you’re in the UK, at least it’s something.
Originally launched in the fall of 2013, Project Soul developed the game with online multiplayer support and updated graphics. Launched via PSN and XBL, it gives players who may never have had the chance to play classic fighters the opportunity to bring their Astaroths and Kiliks online, giving spammy Knightmare players a full workout.
Given how difficult it is to run older versions of Soul Calibur games on modern technology (probably because of character licensing, we haven’t seen a port or remake), you’ll have to stick with the newer game. If you don’t mind what I say, they’re not exactly the same. Still, at least Soul Force 4 gets those crazy Star Wars characters for some reason. Lucas, this is how you make cameos.
