Coming from Lab Zero and Skybound Games, lovely looking 2D fighter Skullgirls 2nd Encore is dropping on Switch today after ducking and diving out of the reach of Nintendo consoles since its debut way back in 2012.
Yes, the game got an 'Encore edition' two years later, but this is the first time it's appearing on a Nintendo platform. This slickly animated fighter is known for its bountiful personality and appealing to both fighting veterans and total newbies alike. Having dabbled with it on other platforms in the past, we can confirm that it's a beautiful looking thing, but don't take our word for it - check out the brand new launch trailer above.
The Switch version supports online and local two-player and has all the DLC the game received elsewhere, with new characters, a fully voiced Story Mode and various other trimmings. Here are a handful of screenshots:
Switch is steadily amassing a nice little collection of fighting games (in addition to the all-conquering Smash Bros., of course) and assuming Skullgirls can maintain the same level of quality we've seen it reach on other platforms, this could well be one to add to your library of brawlers. Keep an eye out for our review in the near future.
It's available for download on the Nintendo eShop as we write for £19.99 / €24.99 / $24.99 depending on where you reside. Let us know if you plan on picking it up below.
