Soul Calibur I to get XBLA outing

But no online play, looks like.

Namco Bandai has announced plans to blow the dust off the original Soul Calibur and whack the game on Xbox Live Arcade.

Apparently it'll feature "a variety of leaderboards spanning every character and mode", and you'll be able to choose from Arcade, Training and Survival modes. A "local-play Versus mode" is also listed but there's no suggestion you'll be able to battle it out online.

Still, there's always, er, Infinitum, a space-themed arcade shooter with "literally no bounds" according to Namco Bandai. As you destroy enemies you absorb their energy, and your ship changes in size, shape and capabilities as a result. It's on the way for XBLA and PlayStation Network.

Soul Calibur and Infinitum are out this summer.
