The last DLC character was Beowulf in 2015.
Just when you thought it was dead, Autumn Games drops a surprise character trailer for Skullgirls 2nd Encore. Annie of the Stars is the newest addition to the game’s roster. Even a better surprise is that she will not be the only one. In the trailer below, look carefully and you see more slots for future characters. With this announcement, it seems that Skullgirls is getting ready for a 3rd Encore.
Skullgirls was released in 2012 on PlayStation Network and Xbox Arcade Live. It is developed by Reverge Labs and published by Autumn Games. After laying off most of their staff following a lawsuit from an unrelated property, Def Jam Rapster, Autumn Games’ core team reformed as Lab Zero Games in November 2012 and launched a crowdfunding campaign to finish their work. After Autumn Games severed ties with distributor Konami Digital Entertainment in December 2013, the latter formally requested to have the game removed from the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade. The game was later re-released on both platforms in 2014 as Skullgirls Encore. When the game was ported to the PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and PC in 2015, it was renamed to Skullgirls 2nd Encore. Skybound Games published 2nd Encore for the Nintendo Switch in October 2019 and Xbox One in December 2020.
