[Update: Lab Zero Games has announced that the Xbox One port of Skullgirls 2nd Encore has been “postponed indefinitely”, citing “unforeseen development and production challenges”. The studio apologised for any disappointment caused.]
Lab Zero’s excellent tag-fighting title Skullgirls 2nd Encore, will finally arrive on Nintendo Switch next week, with the wild and beautiful fist-fest launching October 22.
Originally launching way back in 2012, Skullgirls is a fantastic and deep fighting game, featuring a unique and utterly magnetic roster of loopy characters. From retro-cartoon cyborg Peacock and circus performing mobster Cerebella, to resurrected opera singer Squigly and ninja nurse Valentine, the Skullgirls‘ universe is alive with expressive characters, detailed locations and deep (and surprisingly dark) lore, all dressed up in Lab Zero’s high-quality art and animation.
