Lab Zero Games and Autumn Games are bringing Skullgirls 2nd Encore to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita this summer, replete with a number of exclusive new features.
// Fully-voiced Story Mode
►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 system 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.
// Survival Mode
►Skullgirls 2nd Encore’s new Survival Mode pits players against an endless procession of foes.
The better you do, the more health you’ll recover between rounds. The longer you last, the harder your foes will become.
// Full Platinum Trophy Set
►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.
// Cross-Play Across the Entire PlayStation Family
►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!
// PlayStation 4 Version: PlayStation 3 Peripheral Support
►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!
Currently these new features will be exclusive to the PS4/Vita releases, but we’re looking into releasing them as DLC on for the PC version.
