Skullgirls followers, (akin to yours really), have purpose to breathe a sigh of aid this morning, as new plans laid out by writer Autumn Video games and developer Hidden Variable recommend that the longer term could be very shiny certainly for the attractive and extremely participating cartoon fighter.
Autumn Video games not solely introduced the discharge timing for brand spanking new gal Annie of the Stars – who will arrive on PC in Early Entry subsequent month earlier than becoming a member of the sport correct in Might – nevertheless it additionally revealed the existence of a brand new season go, teasing an additional three DLC characters who’re headed to the roster throughout 2021 and 2022.

Not solely is Skullgirls one in all “the little gals” in an costly and crowded preventing recreation market, however again in its adolescence it provided up lots of its DLC characters free-of-charge for a restricted time. As such, I am more than pleased to assist the title – following years of leisure – because it makes an attempt to re-find its toes following ugly controversies. Plus… something to extend the possibilities of Black Dahlia. Hopefully, members of recent studio Future Membership may develop into concerned within the design and growth course of.
Skullgirls 2nd Encore is out there now on PS4, PC, Xbox One. Skullgirls Season 1 Move might be accessible to buy in some unspecified time in the future within the near-future. We’ll offer you a heads-up.
