It’s been four years since the Spirit Sword, SoulCalibur, held the evil sword Soul Edge at bay and spread its pieces across the world. Now Soul Edge’s still-powerful shards are exerting their influence on the world. SoulCalibur II tells of those who seek the sword and explores their reasons for doing so. Thirteen familiar warriors and many new ones compete for the Spirit Sword and their own souls in seven exciting game modes including Arcade, Time Attack, Survival and Team Battle modes. The all-new Weapons Master mode lets you wield more than 200 weapons and items. Unlockable characters (the GameCube version includes Link from the Legend of Zeldaseries), costumes and arenas will provide non-stop action, excitement and surprises as you go one-on-one against your favourite characters.
