For the occasion, the launch of the game is scheduled for April 5, and the development company has also revealed that Skullgirls 2nd Encore will be Cross Buy, which means those who have already purchased the PlayStation 4 version of the game will receive a PlayStation Vita copy for free, and vice versa.

As usual it includes all additional DLC that appeared in the form of new characters, challenges, Survival modes and others. But also other possibilities of PS Vita own, such as using the touch screen for some specific movements, local multiplayer support for PlayStation TV, etc.

Check out what all things are included in the Skullgirls 2nd Encore game below:

1. All 5 DLC characters
2. Fully voiced story mode
3. New Challenges — including playing as the Skullgirl herself, Marie!
4. New Trials
5. New Survival Mode
6. Full Platinum Trophy set

Peter Bartholow, CEO of Lab Zero Games, also added:

Skullgirls’ multiplayer lobbies allow eight players to gather and fight or spectate, but also have a feature we like to call “All Play.”

In most fighting game lobbies, eight players will queue up, and six players will wait while the first two players fight. When those two are done, the next two will fight, and so on.

With All Play, eight players enter the lobby, and all eight can be paired up to fight at once. And as they complete their matches, they’ll be paired up again as soon as they’re out.

This means less time waiting your turn and more time playing, something we think the genre has needed for quite some time.
