These days Lab Zero Games is more known for their action RPG Indivisible, but they originally made their mark in 2012 with Skullgirls, an arcade fighter with detailed, lavishly animated characters and a heaping load of personality.
Skullgirls has been updated (2nd Encore contains all of its DLC) and it’s been easy to find on most modern platforms….except the Switch. Time to remedy that! The game is now out on the Nintendo eShop, so you can bring the brawl wherever you go.
Skullgirls 2nd Encore delivers a modern take on classic arcade fighters with a high-definition, hand-drawn twist. Unique gameplay mechanics, gorgeous animations, and creative characters with tons of personality make it a blast for both hardcore fighting game fans and newcomers alike.
Originally released in 2012, Skullgirls has amassed a dedicated fanbase over the years, releasing across multiple platforms, but never before on a Nintendo system. Skullgirls 2nd Encore on Switch supports two players, both online and locally, and features all the extra DLC the game has received on other platforms, including new characters, a fully voiced Story Mode, unique challenges, helpful trials, color options and an endless Survival Mode.
Skullgirls: 2nd Encore is one of the pricier indie offerings you can get on Switch, leaning in at $24.99, but it’s worth every penny. And if you’re wondering where Indivisible is, it’s coming to Switch soon (a specific release date has not been announced).
