Skullgirls 2nd Encore for PS Vita goes gold

Fighting game in the approval process.


Development on the PS Vita version of Skullgirls 2nd Encore is complete, developer Lab Zero Games announced.

The PS Vita version is currently in the submission process and a release date will be announced for North America and Europe once it’s approved. When it launches, it will be cross-buy with the PlayStation 4 version.

Lab Zero also shared a video of the PS Vita version. Here are a couple things you’ll need to know before watching:

The loading time demonstration shows you the absolute LONGEST match loading time, which happens when you load two teams of 3 characters, using the 6 biggest characters (in terms of assets) in the game: Big Band, Squigly, Eliza, Cerebella, Ms Fortune, and Painwheel. Team combinations using fewer characters, smaller characters, or duplicate characters (on opposing teams) will result in faster loading times.

The framerate demonstration shows you the slowest framerate you’ll see during a match, and occurs when Big Band hits the opponent and their assist character with his Lv3 Blockbuster (Strike Up The Band) while his own assist character is on screen.
