Get inside scoop on all our upcoming video game properties
Tuesday, May 13, 2003

As previously mentioned, Todd will have a big presence at this year's E3 event in Los Angeles on May 14. Much of that presence will be shared with our friends at Namco, promoting several upcoming projects. Click here to read background on this partnership.

In last-minute news, we have created two special lithographs - one featuring a battle between Necrid and Spawn in SOULCALIBUR II and one featuring various characters from the upcoming McFarlane/Namco Spawn game - for fans at the event. The SCII piece was pencilled by Greg Capullo and inked by Todd and Danny Miki. The Spawn piece was pencilled by Capullo and inked by Todd. Both pieces were colored by Jay Fotos and were produced by Namco.

Limited to a production of 1,000 pieces each, they will be available during Todd's signing events at E3. The SOULCALIBUR II litho will be available during Todd's scheduled signing at the Microsoft booth (#1246) from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. The Spawn litho will be available during Todd's scheduled signing at the Namco booth (#946) from 2:45 to 3:45 p.m.

Additionally, our New Jersey office has created a special E3/SOULCALIBUR II video that will be played on the overhead monitors in the Namco booth at E3. As a bonus for visitors, you can see it now by downloading the video from one of the links below:

QuickTime 480x360: MOV (6.25mb) | ZIP (5.65mb)
QuickTime 320x240: MOV (2.16mb) | ZIP (2.07mb)

For gamers, Namco will be running a SOULCALIBUR II tournament during E3, in which gamers can play as either Necrid or Spawn. Signups will be in the Namco booth until all tournament slots are filled. The eventual tournament winner will receive a reproduction of the Soul Edge.
