No widescreen option for XBLA Soulcalibur

Namco Bandai has just released first shots of their forthcoming Xbox Live Arcade edition of Soulcalibur. The game is based on the 1999 Dreamcast original. As you can see the title will sport some upgraded visuals that will take advantage of high-def, however the game will not be remade to be widescreen compatible.

Namco have not commented on the reason for this, but it is most likely due to time restrains. It was also previously announced the game will not have online play either, probably for the same reason.

The game does however boast online leadeboards, so I am sure that makes up for all the omissions!
