Soul Calibur has just been ported to iOS and brings new updates such as, Versus mode. This was one of the biggest complaints players had in the previous versions of Soul Calibur. Soul Calibur has plenty of action to offer players of all kinds at many levels. Soul Calibur is available on the iPhone and iPad only at this time.
For players who haven’t had the privilege of playing this action packed game yet, Soul Calibur was an action packed arcade game released over a decade ago. Many were just taken back by this game decades ago. I think many gamers will feel the same, now that it’s been ported to iOS. The iPad has become such a large part of gamers style today. It only makes sense for the major arcade games to port over to the newest technology available for gaming which is iOS. Needless to say, Soul Calibur has many different levels of action to offer gamers today.
One of the most recent additions to Soul Calibur is the Versus mode and Bluetooth compatibility. Many have stated they wanted this feature in the past. As many wanted features have been added, some are not available on the iPod 4. Therefore, iPod lovers will just have to wait a bit longer for these features to become available.
The biggest addition today is the Versus mode. If a Versus mode doesn’t suit your fancy, SOULCALIBUR has several other game modes to offer iOS lovers,

Soul Calibur can be purchased today(4/14/12) for $11.99, original price $14.99. This is definitely one of the most expensive games I have played on iOS. However, it is an aweasome play but I have played many other iOS games which are much less expensive, and are just as exciting and graphics just as good. It boils down to the users choice but if you are a gamer who loves action packed games, I say go for it. I think if Soul Calibur becomes a big hit in the iTunes app store at this price, we will see many other favorited console games ported to iOS. They will probably have the high price tag to go with them also. Download Soul Calibur in the iTunes store here. Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments.
