Autumn Games will begin work on the PC version of Skullgirls in the coming weeks thanks to support from Japanese publisher Marvelous AQL.
Posting to the official Skullgirls website today, Autumn Games said it is in the final stages of signing an agreement with Marvelous AQL to fund and publish the PC version of the 2D animated fighting game.
"We presented Marvelous with two options," Autumn Games wrote. "A relatively quick port that would mirror the feature set of the console releases, and a slower port with expanded multiplayer functionality such as lobbies. Marvelous AQL has graciously opted for [the] second option."
Autumn Games predicts that the game will be completed four months from when development commences. The studio will keep its fans up-to-date via its blog and will release information about a public beta as the date draws closer.
The PC version of Skullgirls is expected to release on "pretty much every digital distribution platform" including Gamefly, GamersGate, GameStop PC Download, Origin and Steam. Skullgirls is one of the games being considered for inclusion in the 2013 EVO fighting game tournament. Those who wish to vote for its inclusion can take part in the donation drive.
