Skullgirls: Encore Coming to PS4/Vita, Includes DLC Chars For Free

skullgirls coming to ps4 ps vita

The PS4 and PS Vita versions of Skullgirls Encore will include all of the DLC characters, stages, and story funded by Lab Zero's Indiegogo campaign.

Skullgirls, despite having to deal with some frivolous sexism accusations, quickly became crowdfunding service IndieGoGo's golden child, embarking on an underdog story of how a game, screwed over by its own publisher, could rise from the ashes with the help of the community. The campaign basically resulted in Skullgirls: Encore, a new version of the game with new characters, stages, and story, and now, its making its way to the PS4 and PS Vita.

"Very little has been constant during Skullgirls' two year existence - after all, the game has changed distributors and even developers," wrote Sony on its official blog. "But one thing has stayed with us all this time: people asking us to bring the game to PS Vita and, more recently, PS4. We read your comments, we took them to heart, and we're finally making it happen: Skullgirls Encore will be coming to PS4 and PS Vita later this year!"

The PS4 and PS Vita versions of Skullgirls Encore will be complete, including all of the DLC characters, stages, and story funded by Lab Zero's Indiegogo campaign, as well as "All Play" multiplayer lobbies and an extensive art gallery.

Lab Zero will also being hosting a side-tournament for Skullgirls at this year's EVO, with Sony donating two PS4 systems for the winners.

God dammit guys, I already own skullgirls on PC and PS3, and now its getting a vita release?

Sigh.

Guess I will own 3 copies of it then.

Fighter for begginers my ass. Just wait for the turbo edition for the game to actually work.

You know... you could just settle with the two copies you have already...

Want!
I was never very good with skullgirls, but I enjoy the artwork very much and I still find it to be fun.

An amazing game, but I still hope to hear news about the Linux version.

Unless I can move my Encore digital copy to my [distant] future PS4, I guess I'm buying this game for a second (third(?), since that one Encore copy I got for my PS3 was complimentary of Lab Zero) time...

Skullgirls is one of the best games to come out this decade, good to see it coming to more consoles and Lab Zero getting more publicity at EVO.

I wonder what Lab Zero will do after they finish game projects funded by the campaign.

I hope that releasing for a next gen system will mean Mike's going to do that HD munge for the PC version, so all the sprites look sharp at 1080p.

^This and a DRM-free GoG or Humble Bundle edition. I only want to play the campaign but now that its for vita I might bite the bullet early
