Skullgirls Goes Mobile (Kind of)


Lab Zero announced the other day that a new version of the indie fighting game Skullgirls will be coming to Android and iOS in 2016, developed with the help of Hidden Variable Studios. Rather than being a straight port (which wouldn’t be that strange, since Skullgirls has been ported to pretty much everything), the game will allow you to build a team of multiple characters, each one a variation of one of the core Skullgirls characters, and build a deck of moves to assign to them. Characters gain experience as they fight, and can grow and evolve, gaining new taunts and attacks. The game will have its own story mode, telling stories that take place before the main game’s story.

If you’re interested (and have a phone or tablet that doesn’t suck), you can sign up for the beta here.
