The Switch version of Skullgirls 2nd Encore will launch on October 22, the game’s Nintendo eShop page has revealed.
The game was originally due out for Switch alongside an Xbox One version this past spring. A Microsoft Store listing for the Xbox One version has yet to surface, so are currently unable to confirm whether the Xbox One version is due out on the same date, but we have sent an e-mail to publisher Skybound Games and are awaiting a response.
Skullgirls 2nd Encore is currently available for PlayStation 4, PS Vita, and PC.
Here is an overview of the game, via Nintendo.com:
Skullgirls 2nd Encore is finally available to play on the go on Nintendo Switch! It is a beautiful, fast-paced, and critically acclaimed 2D fighting game that puts players in control of fierce warriors in an extraordinary Dark Deco world.
