Skullgirls Currently the #1 Downloadable PlayStation 3 Title in Japan

By on February 21, 2013 at 11:31 am

Only a week after its release, Skullgirls has taken Japan by storm, quickly climbing to the #1 slot on the PlayStation Network’s list of top downloadable PlayStation 3 titles. The indie fighter saw a similar performance in the United States when it dropped in April of 2012. Hopefully this increased fan response overseas will aid Lab Zero in their quest to eventually expand the game with new downloadable content.
