iSF4 also has dumbed down, ugly 2D sprites taken from the great 3D graphics of other versions. iPhone 4S is more powerful than 3DS so there's no excuse for Capcom except laziness (plus excluding larger audience, but all newer games already do this without problem).
Then let's not forget than even the XBLA version of SoulCalibur has no online multiplayer, so I doubt it's coming to iPhone.
But I still hope local multiplayer, story and challenge modes make it to the game.
ps: I'm not bashing SF4, I bought SF4 on first day amidst concerns the controls won't work just to show Capcom support for bringing a big franchise to iOS. I love the game so much and bought all DLCs to keep supporting Capcom. SF4 Volt is even better, but I just wanna give another perspective to the matter.
You should probably read my post again.
If you do, and find ANY traces of complaints
over or criticism
at SoulCalibur's lack of online multiplayer (as opposed to factual statements, such as that I would probably play the game more often if it had online capabilities, or personal opinions, such as that SFIV Volt offers more value to the dollars thanks to the online mode, which is not criticism of SC, but praise of SFIV Volt), then I'll record and send you a video of me, dressed up as Ivy, challenging your grand master of martial arts of choice, and consequently getting thoroughly groundpounded.
I enjoy both games greatly, but when Bawis says that he is unsure what game to buy, it is hard to recommend SFIV Volt without mentioning the online mode, which is what makes SFIV the better value in my opinion (since, as you point out, SC has MUCH going for it).
