Lab Zero Games has revealed that Skullgirls 2nd Encore is Switch-bound. The news was announced at the Anime Expo 2018, although a solid release date wasn't forthcoming.
Previously available on PlayStation 4, PS Vita, and PC, Skullgirls 2nd Encore showcases 14 fighters, a story mode, online play and a soundtrack by the legendary Michiru Yamane. It's also famous for its rather racy character designs and inventive special moves.
The original Skullgirls was in contention for a release on Wii U but the developer said the low sales of the machine made it hard to justify the release. Thankfully the Switch doesn't suffer from that problem.
Our pals over at Push Square gave the PS4 version of the game 7/10, saying:
Skullgirls remains a fine fighter with finesse and an interesting solution to excessive imbalance. The game boasts a brilliant implementation of GGPO netplay, and a sublime tutorial. However, 2nd Encore misfires with a lack of winner-stays-on lobbies at launch, quite a small roster, perfunctory story mode, and the game's art style – superb in places – feels needlessly cheapened at times. While offering a solid counter to infinite combos, the rest of the game's mechanics are possibly too derivative of its peers'.
