Skullgirls Will Be Patched With Movelists and DLC If The Game Sells Well

As you may have already heard, Skullgirls does not feature an in-game movelist to see your character’s commands. Mike Z revealed on UltraChen TV last night that this option was omitted in favor of working on more advanced features that can’t be easily downloaded. The developers simply didn’t have enough time to add everything in time for the game’s launch and movelists were not as much of a priority. Training mode input display is also something that would be patched in. However, the game needs to sell well enough to justify a patch since Sony and Microsoft charge a hosting fee. It was also revealed that a PC version is still in development. Mike Z seems confident that they’ll at least make enough money to release a patch and DLC (which includes male characters), but we’ll have to wait and see.

Although it’s a shame that we won’t be able to see movelists in-game, a PDF version will be available to download straight from the Skullgirls website. The Shoryuken wiki was also updated with the movelists for each character and so much more. Definitely check it out.

Mike Z discusses future DLC and patches about 1:45 into the archive below.
