EA secures PS2 and Xbox Calibur
No sign of the Cube version
EA will publish Soul Calibur II for PlayStation 2 and Xbox across PAL territories, thanks to an existing agreement with Namco. However, nobody in Chertsey is prepared to say when the game will be released, and nobody knows what's happening with the Cube version.
EA's press release also reveals that new boy Necrid has been designed by comic artist Todd McFarlane. McFarlane's Spawn character is also set to appear in the Xbox version.
EA's Namco publishing alliance has been in place for a few months, with Pac-Man World 2 (Cube) and Dead to Rights (Xbox) both out in February as a result.
