Skullgirls is finally hitting PS Vita this week


Cross-buy, cross-play, and even local versus on PSTV

At long last, Skullgirls 2nd Encore is coming to PlayStation Vita this week.

The portable version was initially supposed to launch last summer, but developer Lab Zero Games, by its own admission, "grossly underestimated" just how much work the port would require.

Now it's done, though, and it comes with cross-buy support with the PlayStation 4 version, plus local multiplayer support on PlayStation TV, and even cross-play with the PS4 and PS3 versions.

Lab Zero is also working on the "final" patch for this "ultimate" edition of the game, which includes eight-player multiplayer lobbies that will allow for four simultaneous matches, something the studio hopes will mean players spend less time waiting and more time actually playing.

Skullgirls 2nd Encore will be available on Vita across North America starting April 5 for $25.
