Indie fighting game Skullgirls is making its way to a smartphone near you.
Skullgirls, the indie fighter from Lab Zero Games, is making its way to mobile platforms. The Android and iOS version of the 2012 game will be more than just a port, incorporating deck-building mechanics featuring dozens of collectible fighter variations and tactical, turn-based elements.
"The mobile version of Skullgirls is designed to tell complimentary stories to the console game in 'seasons,' with the game's first season acting as a prequel to the Console game. The mobile game includes a deep character collection featuring dozens of characters and special moves to collect and upgrade - from Parasite Weave Filia to Epic Sax Big Band," said the developer.
The port will be handled by Hidden Variable Studios - the team behind Tic Tactics and Threes.
"I've always been a huge fan of Skullgirls, so the opportunity to bring this amazing cast of characters and unique fighting mechanics to mobile has been a labor of love for all of us over the past two years," said Charley Price, co-founder and creative director at Hidden Variable Studios, in a release. "I think hardcore fans of the console game will really love the way we've captured the essence of fighting gameplay in a simpler, mobile-friendly package, whereas more casual fans will be able to enjoy an awesome accessible experience that explores new stories set in the Skullgirlsuniverse."
