Fans’ patience is soon to be rewarded.
Limited Run Games, as producer of the long-awaited limited-edition physical releases of Skullgirls 2nd Encore for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita, have provided an update to the game’s significantly delayed production status:
We wanted to give everyone a production update on our Skullgirls physical release for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. It’s been a bumpy ride getting here, but the finish line is finally in sight!
If you weren’t already familiar with the situation, Lab Zero Games has been toiling away on patching out all the remaining bugs in the game so that this physical release would be a definitive and archivable piece. It took a lot longer to get to that point than any of us expected, but the final patch has been completed and we’re now in the final steps for this!
The PlayStation 4 version has been blocked by heavy factory production of other titles on Sony’s side, but is finally in the manufacturing stage and is expected to be ready to ship out to the (hopefully) patient fans by late September 2017. The PS Vita version is still undergoing the certification process, and does not have an expected date for completion/shipping at this time.
As intended to be the ultimate version of Skullgirls, the wait for these releases should be worth it for the dedicated fans that pre-ordered them.
