Game modes, Cross-play, voice actors and more all revealed for upcoming PS Vita port.

It has been a very long time since Skullgirls was last mentioned on TVL. In fact, you would have to look back to October 2014 for their last mention. Originally released on PS3 in early 2014, and after a phenomenally successful Indiegogo campaign to bring DLC to the game, Lab Zero Games announced they would be porting the title to PS Vita and PS4 with all DLC and extra content included.

After over half a year of waiting, details have finally be unearthed, and PS Vita owners will be getting their hands on SkullGirls 2nd Encore which will have a whole host of new features. So what will be included? Lets have a run through of what 2nd Encore will have:

Cross-Play across all Sony Platforms

Similar to how PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale cross-play worked, you will be able to play against players on PS3, PS4 and PS Vita.

Challenges

In Challenges game mode, you face different opponents with a variety of different battle conditions.

Survival Mode

As the name suggests, you are pitted against wave after wave of enemies. The better you do, the more health you recover between rounds but the further you progress the harder the opposition becomes.

Trials

The Trails game mode is aimed at helping players master different combos. They are built on the new button-by-button instructional system to make combo easier and more intuitive to learn.

Full Platinum Trophy Set

43 Trophies will be included in SkullGirls 2nd Encore and will test players ability and skill with the new content.
