This summer, Skullgirls Encore will be available on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita as Skullgirls 2nd Encore. This collaboration between Autumn Games and Lab Zero Games will come equipped with several features exclusive to this release, though they may come as DLC to the PC version at a later date.
Skullgirls 2nd Encore will feature fully voiced character stories as well as survival mode, cross-play, and character trials.
Responding to fan demand, the story modes for Skullgirls 2nd Encore will be fully voiced! Featuring some of anime’s best and brightest, the new voices bring Skullgirls’ deep characters and lore to life.

In challenges, players square off against opponents with a variety of unique battle conditions to test their mettle. Can you beat Big Band without jumping? Or defeat triple Doubles?
Trials test players’ skills by having them to perform combos. Trials are built on a new button-by-button instructional to make learning combos easier and more intuitive than ever.
Furthermore, unlike many fighting game trials, Skullgirls 2nd Encore’s trials include combos frequently used in real play, from basic bread ‘n butter to more advanced combos.
Skullgirls 2nd Encore’s new Survival Mode pits players against an endless procession of foes – how long can you last?
The better you do, the more health you’ll recover between rounds. The longer you last, the harder your foes will become.
For all the trophy hunters out there, Skullgirls 2nd Encore will have a full Platinum trophy set.
The 43 trophies will test players’ mastery of Skullgirls and the new content. Many of the previous trophies are returning, while others have been adjusted based on player feedback.
To keep the online community from fragmenting, Skullgirls 2nd Encore supports cross-play across all three PlayStation platforms: PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita!
Skullgirls 2nd Encore will support PlayStation 3 fight sticks on the PlayStation 4, thanks to the excellent work of our friend John “Cowboy” Bellomy. Just plug in your old stick and play!
Since we announced this feature, NetherRealm Studios has licensed it for use in Mortal Kombat X on PlayStation 4.
When you buy the PS4 version of Skullgirls 2nd Encore, you’ll get the Vita version with it free, and vice-versa!
We’re going to try and get both out simultaneously, but expect the Vita version will be released shortly after the PS4 version.
You’ll be able to pre-order Skullgirls 2nd Encore in the coming months, and you’ll get a beautiful PS4 theme as a bonus for your purchase. It’s pretty great, if we say so ourselves, and will release a preview of it up before too long.
