Skullgirls Encore will be expanding its horizons this year when Lab Zero Games releases the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita versions. Yes, the ladies are going to new places, and I'm not just talking about EVO 2014.
Previously released to the Sony Entertainment Network (and Xbox LIVE Arcade), Skullgirls Encore has already been out for PlayStation 3. Later this year, however, developer Lab Zero and distributor Autumn Games will be showing the rest of the Sony family a bit more love with PS4 and Vita versions. No concrete date was given, but we'll no doubt here more soon, what with EVO 2014 coming up.
After a rather messy fallout between Lab Zero and Konami over content distribution for Skullgirls, the 2D fighter was delisted from Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Network (now SEN). The developer's answer to this was to make Skullgirls Encore, a new and improved version of the original with balance updates, new palettes, stages and characters. Since Skullgirls for PC was left alone, Encore was never released for PC but continues to receive updates alongside Encore.
