Skullgirls

I love Skullgirls. It’s probably the most fun I’ve had with a fighting game since Soul Calibur 2, and I fuckin’ love fighting games. Now Lab Zero and Autumn Games have announced some pretty major updates to the game and boy am I excited.

Dubbed Skullgirls 2nd Encore, the game will be released on PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in the summer. Some of the major updates include a story mode featuring full voice acting, a challenge mode, a trials mode to learn more combos, and a survival mode. A lot of these are fighting game staples which Skullgirls has unfortunately lacked up to now, so it’ll be great to see them added.

Additionally, the PS4 version will be able to support peripherals such as arcade sticks that were made for the PlayStation 3. Those things are freaking expensive, so yay! No crippling debt just to nail a combo! Crossplay will also be available across all of the PlayStation copies of the game, including the PlayStation 3 version which isn’t currently confirmed to be receiving 2nd Encore content.

The downside is there’s currently no confirmation 2nd Encore will be coming to non-PlayStation platforms, however a tweet on the official Skullgirls account says they are looking to bring it to PC via DLC for the original game. They haven't even mentioned Xbox 360 or Xbox One yet, so don't get your hopes up.

Hopefully they’ll also be able to add more characters like Beowulf for me to fawn over, but hey a challenge mode is good too. Gotta keep them fingers dexterous.
