    Later this year, Hidden Variable Studios will be releasing a Skullgirls game on Android and iOs supported devices. While the game will not be a Fighting game like the Skullgirls you know and love, it will instead feature RPG elements in its progression system and contain elements of teambuilding and deckbuilding. One might not expect the game to be able to match the speed and intensity that one would find in Skullgirls, however Hidden Variable has gone to great lengths to make sure that the game will be lively enough to keep the attention of fighting game fans as well as those that enjoy the Skullgirls universe and want an accessible mobile game. Lab Zero CEO Peter Bartholow has stated that he is looking forward to fans of Skullgirls checking the game out.

    While Lab Zero is working with Hidden Variable to make this game, it is not being made by Lab Zero so don't expect it to share any similarities to Indivisible. One last interesting bit of information is that on release the game will be set as a prequel to the events of Skullgirls, however it will continue to explore other parts of the setting in the future as the game expands.

    In addition, if you're interested in the game, Hidden Variable will be accepting fans into a Closed Beta starting today so people can get a chance to play and offer feedback.

      Woah wait, they need my real name? Uuuh I don't know.

      Also, is the game going to be free to play or cost money? I'm a bit hoping it will cost something seeing how F2P mobile games tend to make money with microtransactions.

      Deadly Airpost was a mobile fighting game bootleg that used SG's name in the Google Play store. It became infamous here on Skullheart, although I think it's becoming SG's "The Room".

      That's when SG first came out and some talentless hacks videogame journalists called the game "juvenile and sexist" because boobs.

      Since there will be new animations, I'm hoping for the appearance of a new character or two that didn't get the chance to be playable. I would love Umbrella, but if she gets in I guess she can't be our salt girl anymore lol.

      remember a lot of this stuff is still not confirmed so it is just speculation.

      I just looked into Hidden Variable's other games and I'm now really confident in this. They all have pretty reasonable monetization methods, there's free versions with ads but you also have the option to just buy it too. And plus Threes just made me stay up 2 hours later than I really should have.

      Watching the AX panel (specifically part 2) this has been in the work with Lab Zero for two years.

      Yeah, this doesn't seem like just a cash grab at all.

      yeah I'm also impressed that the Mobile version is using the same scripts as the original game, which is just amazing. I'm actually warming up to this. Watching thru the videos is really clearing some of my worries.

      I'm looking at Bag It! and Google Play lists a $49.99 IAP, on an already paid game. Um, what the hell Hidden Variable?

      What the hell are you what the helling about? I'd say the fact they don't have a 99.99 option like most other games have is kind of impressive.

      And Mike said at the panel that his job was making *this* game isn't just a cash grab. If you want to pay money to get stuff, cool. But you don't have to. Which seems to be what Hidden Variable's games lean towards anyway.

      From the skullgirls indiegogo campaign. Besides Squigly, Big Band, and Robo, backers got to vote for which two characters would be in the game. Eliza and Beowulf ended up winning, but some people took their favorite character getting in -- and the characters they hated staying out -- really seriously.

      huh, I'm looking through the free version for things to buy and I totaled up $34.9. But that's counting things like removing ads($3.99), unlocking sets of levels early by not playing the game($1.99 each), and a real plushie from amazon($14.99). I'm not sure where the other $15 is coming from but I can't really find anything nefarious about the game.

      I've been thinking about that beta form, and how are they going to verify that someone was a backer? My iTunes email is different than the one I used for the SG indiegogo, which is different from the one I used for the indivisible indiegogo, and I'm not sure if my real name is connected to those campaigns in any way.

      I figure they'd match the email you put down against Lab Zero's master lists.

      I mean mine is the same on both so no worries here, ha.

      Which IGG does it refers to though? Because I thought it was referring to SG's so I didn't check that box.

      Skullgirls. Though Peter said they might tie the Indivisible one to it, too.

      Speaking of which, will we see any Indivisible cameos in SG Mobile? Putting aside all talk of Ajna in SG2 for a moment, can I at least have her in this?

      when Mike owns DarkStalkers and when Arc allows for a cross over with Guilty Gear.

      it needs to happen. SGxVSxGG would be dripping with sweet sweet action. Team Eliza, Ino, and Morrigan.

      Do we have any idea roughly how many people they plan to let into the beta? If I don't make it I'm gonna cry.
