2D fighter Skullgirls 2nd Encore will launch on PlayStation 4 and Vita this summer with a roster of new features.
Last week Skullgirls developer Lab Zero Games released its Eliza DLC on PS3 and PC, but its Xbox 360 launch saw a problem on Microsoft's console due to a two-year-old bug that never manifested itself until now.
Fighting game Skullgirls today gets a new character: Eliza.
Downloadable fighter Skullgirls will get a release on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, developer Lab Zero Games has announced.
"What's the square root of a fish?" asked the fighting game Skullgirls to a bewildered player. Unfamiliar with aquatic arithmetic the confused player, Twitter user SaikyoChamp, asked the developer what was up with this peculiar query.
Fighting game Skullgirls will be re-released on the PlayStation Store and Xbox Live Marketplace as Skullgirls Encore, its developer has announced.
Fighting game Skullgirls may be removed from the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live.
There is light at the end of the tunnel for patches to fighting game Skullgirls.
Co-publishers Autumn Games and Konami have, as developer Lab Zero Games described it, "terminated their business relationship".
"As it's been alluded to in the past, things have not always been hunky-dory between Autumn Games and Konami," Lab Zero Games' Peter Bartholow wrote on Skullgirls' IndieGoGo page.
Stylish cel-shaded fighter Skullgirls is coming to PC on 22nd August, developer Lab Zero Games has announced.
The votes are in: Skullgirls will get Eliza added as a downloadable character, Zero Lab Games has announced.
Last November Skullgirls developer Lab Zero Games released a major patch to its female-themed fighter, but this mild game-changer only arrived on PSN as its large size - 590 MB - conflicted with Microsoft's update policy. Thankfully, it turns out this update is coming to XBLA after all and should be arriving in the next two weeks.
Lab Zero CEO Peter Bartholow informed XBLA Fans that the Skullgirls 1.01 "Slightly Different Edition" patch is currently going through certification and Microsoft said "it'll take two weeks, but actually estimated that it would likely only take one."
Bartholow noted that the XBLA update is "the exact same patch that the PS3 version got last November - nothing was cut. The Title Update + Compatibility Pack method of patching we ended up employing doesn't have any size limits."
The developer of fighting game Skullgirls will offer its engine free of charge to the developer of My Little Pony: Fighting is Magic for free, but there's a catch.
Lab Zero Games' noble effort to keep Skullgirls kicking is going strong with its record-breaking Indiegogo campaign having just risen enough to greenlight a second new character, Big Band.
Skullgirls developer Lab Zero Games will be adding a new fighter, Squigly, to its roster following a record-setting Indiegogo campaign that raised over $150,000 in a day. Currently the total comes to $183,292 with 29 days to go before the 27th March deadline.
The original Max Payne game is available to download from the EU PlayStation Store from today. The PlayStation 2 Classic will cost £7.99, and launches ahead of Rockstar's threequel later this month.
All-girl 2D fighter Skullgirls is due to launch on the EU PlayStation Store next week, Sony has revealed. Xbox Live gamers got the brawler first, earlier this month.
Skullgirls will enjoy little of the warm-hearted generosity that normally accompanies the release of a micro-team's indie game. While this 2D fighter's underdog credentials are impeccable - designer Mike Zaimont worked for blockbuster studio Pandemic before it folded and he struck out on his own to work on this passion project - the fighting game community has little room for sentimentality.
Rather, Skullgirls lives or dies on the quality of its balance, the 10,000 micro-decisions that combine to decide whether a fighting game has a fighting chance in one of the most brutal and unforgiving genres. The fact that this is a £10 game is largely irrelevant. The cent-per-hour cost of a perennial fighting game drops to insignificant levels if it is appropriated by the tournament community; Skullgirls must go toe-to-toe with Street Fighter 4 and all the other heavyweights and come out standing to earn its applause.
The game has a better chance than most. Zaimont is a tournament-level fighting game competitor (a champion on the EVO circuit) who helped balance Japanese fighters BlazBlue: Continuum Shift and Marvel vs. Capcom 2. His understanding of hit-boxes and combo strings is not only quietly evident in the game's systems, but also explicit in what is one of the most useful and comprehensive training modes seen in any fighting game to date.
Rapturously received indie platformer Fez has entered the weekly Xbox Live Arcade chart at number one.
All-girl fighting game Skullgirls launches on PlayStation Network today in the US, and tomorrow, 11th April on Xbox Live Arcade in the US and Europe.
Skullgirls artist Alex Ahad has responded to the controversy surrounding his art style - and distanced himself and the development team from comments made to Eurogamer on the subject by designer and community manager at Reverge Peter Bartholow.
The developer of Skullgirls, the anime fighting game featuring an all-girl cast, believes those who accuse it of being sexist are displaying "misplaced and shallow chivalry".
Reverge Labs has unveiled Valentine, the latest addition to the roster of 2D fighting game Skullgirls.
Valentine is a ninja and a nurse - as you do - and is nimble. She attacks with medical implements, including a bone saw, defibrillators and... wait for it... corpses. She can also inject her opponents with poison. If they don't faint from the thought, first.
She is the only survivor of the Last Hope, a group of Anti-Skullgirl Lab operatives. Now Valentine serves the Skullgirl. Bwahaha.
PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade 2D fighting game Skullgirls has been delayed to early 2012, its developers have announced.
