The developer of the fighting game Skull Girls 2nd Encore is directly in charge of the domestic PS4 version, and will resume distribution soon. Updates will also be provided

Publisher Autumn Games and Hidden Variable Studios said on August 20 that the PS4 version of the fighting game Skull Girls 2nd Encore will be in charge of distribution in Japan in the future. Prior to this, on August 19, the domestic Domestic Ark System Works ended domestic distribution of the PS4/PS Vita version.

Skull Girls 2nd Encore is a 2D fighting game designed by Reverge Labs/Lab Zero Games. It was released in 2012 as Skullgirls and then updated to the current title. It features cartoon-style visuals and systems affected by Japanese fighting games, such as the Vampire series. In addition, a story about artifacts called skull heart, which creates a skull girl that leads the world to ruin, will develop, and many unique characters will appear.


In addition to the PC version, this work has been ported to many consoles, and in Japan, various publishers are involved. The Ark System Works has been in charge of the PS4/PS Vita version and has been sold since 2016, but it has been reported that a license agreement with Autumn Games has ended on August 19 this year. In response to this, the distribution on the PS Store has ended.

Autumn Games is the right of the Skull Girls, and Hidden Variable Studios is a studio that leads the development of a series that contains a mobile version. The development is also involved in Future Club, which was established by former Lab ZERO GAMES staff (related article). According to the announcement, the PS4 version will be distributed directly in Japan in the future. It seems that distribution will be resumed soon.

He also mentioned the update of this work, which had been released for other regions but had cut off for the domestic PS4 version. The latest information will be delivered in the near future of the update distribution time. It seems to be a plan to distribute season passes and DLC characters.

This work is currently developed in Season 1, and in the PC version, the star Annie and Ambrella have been distributed as additional characters. In addition, Black Dahlia and Marie are scheduled to be distributed in the future. These additional characters can be obtained by purchasing one path of the season, and are included with limited pallet packs (additional characters). Additional characters can be purchased as a DLC alone.

It is expected that such DLCs and updates will be distributed without delay in the future by directly distributing the domestic PS4 version. First of all, I would like to pay attention to the latest information on the PS4 version of the distribution of the PS4 version.

Ubisoft surprises revealing that Skull & Bones will arrive before April 2023

Ubisoft has revealed during the presentation of its latest financial results that Skull & Bones will be published before April 2023.

So I played Skull & Bones...

The Financial Report explains that “On the Line of the Ubisoft commitment to significantly expand its offer, the next fiscal year will significantly include avatar launches: Frontiers of Pandora, Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope, Skull & Bones, and more exciting games “. The fiscal year referred to covers the period between April 2022 and April 2023.

It seems, therefore, that it begins to be light at the end of the tunnel for a tremendously problematic project. Ubisoft presented it for the first time in E3 2017, but since then it has suffered several reboots in its development and numerous setbacks. The last one, just a month ago, was the march of his co-director, Antoine Henry, who left Ubisoft after fifteen years in the French company.

The other two large Ubisoft games for the next twelve months are Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, an open-world action adventure developed by Ubisoft Massive based on the Universe created by James Cameron, and Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope, La Sequue of the exclusive shift strategy game for switch and developed in collaboration with Nintendo
