Skullgirls 2nd Encore Comes to the PS Vita Globally on April 5
Aside from the release date for Skullgirls 2nd Encore, the developers has also revealed that it will be a Cross Buy. This means that those who have already purchased the PlayStation 4 version of the game will automatically receive the PS Vita for free. Consequently, if you purchase the PS Vita game, then you would get the PlayStation 4 version absolutely free.
As usual, the new game will have all the additional downloadable content (DLC) that appeared in the form of new characters, a new Survival mode, challenges, and others. There are also other possibilities for new features that can only be found on the PS Vita version of the game. These include using the touch screen for some specific movements and local multiplayer support for the PlayStation TV just to name a couple.
All the things included within Skullgirls 2nd Encore (PS4 and PS Vita) are as follows: All DLC characters, new challenges (including playing as Marie, the Skullgirl herself), a fully-voiced story mode, new survival mode, new trials, and a full set of platinum trophies for completionists to try and achieve.
CEO of Lab Zero Games, Peter Bartholomew, has the following to say about the game: Skullgirls’ multiplayer lobbies allow eight players to gather and fight or spectate, but also have a feature we like to call “All Play.” In most fighting game lobbies, eight players will queue up, and six players will wait while the first two players fight. When those two are done, the next two will fight, and so on. With All Play, eight players enter the lobby, and all eight can be paired up to fight at once. And as they complete their matches, they’ll be paired up again as soon as they’re out. This means less time waiting your turn and more time playing, something we think the genre has needed for quite some time.”
Skullgirls 2nd Encore includes a large character roster that can are playable. New challenges, trials, and a new mode await those who will take part in this second installment of the Skullgirls franchise.
