Soulcalibur 2 HD could get post-release content or Wii U version if demand is there

Right now, Namco Bandai has no plans for post-release content or a Wii U version of its upcoming HD remake of Soulcalibur 2. Instead, the team is focusing on getting the Xbox Live and PlayStation Network versions out the door with updated graphics and a robust online system. But just because it's not currently in the works, doesn't mean it's not in the cards. If there's a demand, anything is possible.

At a pre-TGS event, we asked the developers if it would be possible for there to be some sort of post-release content for the HD remake. It wouldn't be the first HD rerelease to get DLC that wasn't available for the original--Age of Empires II's HD remake was followed by totally unique DLC--and there have been plenty of characters added to the Soulcalibur franchise since SC2 came out a decade ago. We were told that, if the game does well, it's definitely a possibility.

But there's one character that couldn't be added to the 360 or PS3 version of the game: Link. The Hylian hero was exclusive to the GameCube version, but as of now, there's no Wii U release in the works. When the developers were asked about a Wii U version (and, of course, the ability to add Link back into the game), we were told that it could happen if Namco Bandai sees a demand. They even suggested an outlet for the demand, saying that gamers could spam the producer's Twitter (@hoshino_calibur) if they're interested. In other words: Wii U owners, get to it!

    Please give me the best version of SC 2 on Wii U, which was the Gamecubes!

    The one problem I find with this... is that they would only add a WiiU version with Link if the first wave of the HD remake sold enough, and by that point most of the people who want it would've bought it. There won't be anyone left to sell the WiiU version to.

    Spamming the twitter as we speak.

    There IS a demand! When I heard the news of an HD SCII remake from Namco Bandai's Facebook page, there was a slew of comments saying that they wouldn't buy the XBL or PSN version because they wanted Link. Ironically, it now seems like that could be very counter-productive... Anyway, guess I'll have to make a Twitter account just so I can spam poor Hoshino-san.
