Lab Zero Games has announced that the upcoming PlayStation 4 version of Skullgirls Encore will launch next Tuesday, July 7.
Although bereft of major gameplay adjustments, Skullgirls 2nd Encore features a number of significant upgrades, including a fully-voiced story mode, a trial mode that promises to be more useful than its counterparts in other titles, and more. The title will also feature cross-play, meaning those still competing on PlayStation 3 will be able to face off against newcomers on Sony’s latest platform.
Skullgirls 2nd Encore is also scheduled to arrive on PlayStation Vita within six weeks of the PlayStation 4 release, and both will benefit from cross-buy, meaning that a purchase of one will net players the other version free of charge.
