Developer Lab Zero Games has announced that Skullgirls is coming to the Nintendo Switch, with a special edition, called 2nd Encore.

The game first came out for the Xbox 360 and PS3, back in 2012. It was designed by Mike Zaimont, a professional EVO tournament player.

It’s a tightly-controlled 2D fighter with a cast of characters whose zany designs looks like a mash-up between Darkstalkers and Street Fighter III.

Check out the trailer below:

The official description of the game reads:

“Skullgirls is a fast-paced 2D fighting game that puts players in control of fierce warriors in an extraordinary Dark Deco world. It’s a modern take on classic arcade fighters with a high-definition, hand-drawn twist!

 

With fourteen colorful characters, a beautifully illustrated story mode, in-depth tutorials, and innovative game systems, Skullgirls has something for everyone, from fighting game newcomers to hardcore fans.

 

It’s a one-of-a-kind, action-packed game, complete with awesome combos and an intriguing story!”

Lab Zero Games hasn’t set a release for Skullgirls 2nd Encore yet, and the trailer simply says, “coming soon.”
