Forums for the Skullgirls Comunity. The indie fighting game with tournament-level gameplay and high quality 2D art!

A new patch has recently been released on the PS3/PS4 versions of Second Encore.

On PS3, the patch addresses another crash in the Art Gallery; on PS4, the patch addresses Challenge 7, a few trophies that could not be earned, and a few other issues.

More information on the patch including changelog and the Vita version below.

Arc System Works (of Guilty Gear/BlazBlue fame) have announced that they will be cooperating with Lab Zero Games to publish the PS4 and Vita versions of Skullgirls 2nd Encore in Japan. This announcement comes bundled with another, equally-large announcement: Skullgirls 2nd Encore will feature full Japanese voiceover for its overseas next-gen release!

While the full cast hasn't yet been revealed, GamesTalk has divulged that Filia's JP voice actor will be Ayana Taketatsu, well-known for her many roles in both anime and video game voice acting.

It's unknown if territories outside of Japan will eventually have the Japanese dub backported to them, but Lab Zero have stated that such an occurrence is unlikely to happen with the international PS4 release due to licensing costs. Stay tuned for more info on this as it comes in.
