Last week Lab Zero Games CEO Peter Bartholow announced the new features for Skullgirls 2nd Encore. For those that have never played Skullgirls, the game is beautifully hand-drawn 2D fighter with similar mechanics to Marvel Vs. Capcom. With the field of fighting games filling up with DLC heavy titles, Skullgirls is a welcome change.
The journey for an indie game like Skullgirls has not always been an easy one. The game has had various problems with problems with publishers over the game’s lifespan. In spite of setbacks, thanks to a rabid fanbase and a widely successful Indiegogo campaign the re-release, Skullgirls Encore, featured 6 new fighters. Thanks to the campaign, the 6 new fighters have been released as free DLC for Encore. Now, Skullgirls will be relaunched on the PS4 and PlayStation Vita as Skullgirls 2nd Encore.
