Skullgirls 2nd Encore has been announced for PS4 & PS Vita for release this Summer, bringing the previous Xbox 360 & PS3 Fighting Game onto next-gen consoles for the first time, and bringing a number of enhancements along with it. This new version will feature all-new character voice-overs for the story mode and cross-play between the PS4, PS3 & PS Vita versions. DLC for the PC version is planned to add the extra features into that version.
New Features in Skullgirls: 2nd Encore:
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.
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.
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!
