Skullgirls 2nd Encore’s Vita Release Date Is April 5th In North America

Lab Zero Games has announced that Skullgirls 2nd Encore will be released April 5th on Vita, at least in North America. The studio is focusing on a release approximately a week later in Europe, though it isn’t confirmed yet. Skullgirls 2nd Encore is already available on PS4, and if you have it on that console then you’ll get access to the Vita version in the cross buy promotion.


The Vita version will have cross play with both PS4 and PS3 versions of Skullgirls, as well as local multiplayer on PSTV. Now that the Vita release is near Lab Zero intends to work on online multiplayer lobbies, which will allow up to eight players to join. These lobbies will feature something the studio calls All Play, essentially meaning all players will be paired into matches at the same time to cut down on waiting times.

The online multiplayer lobbies will be part of a patch once work is complete on it.
