Skullgirls Encore on PlayStation 4, PS Vita delayed into 2015

New, 3 comments

Skullgirls Encore's release on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita is being pushed into 2015 to accommodate for additional features, according to a post on the PlayStation Blog Europe.

The port is "still coming," but the game has been expanded "with the aim of making it a better upgrade for fans and a better value for everyone."

The post also details the recent release of Eliza, a "diva with a dark secret," and upcoming character Beowulf. Eliza includes a story mode that Lab Zero calls its most comprehensive yet, and the character will be free to players for a three-month period. Beowulf, meanwhile, is a wrestler who can use a folding chair to attack opponents.

"Beowulf will feature a ton of pro wrestling references," the post reads.

"Similar to Ms. Fortune, Beowulf will also have different attacks depending on whether or not he has his chair with him. And, finally, Beowulf will be able to power himself up by exciting the crowd."

Lab Zero Games announced in July its plans to release the game for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita this year. Skullgirls was rereleased as Skullgirls Encore in February, following a publisher switch.
