Skullgirls has been out for almost a year now, yet it still hasn’t seen a Japanese release. However, this will change soon enough as Lab Zero games has teamed up with Cyberfront to bring Skullgirls to Japan. Cyberfront is known for localizing games for Japanese release, and has worked on games such as Test Drive Unlimited 2 and DJ Max Technica Tune in the past. The game will retail for 1,500 yen, or about 15 U.S. dollars.
This information comes by way of Siliconera, who picked up the details from an upcoming issue of Famitsu. According to Ravidrath on the SRK forums, the Japanese release date will be February 14th. The Japanese version will not contain Japanese voices, just translated text.
