    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.

      don't worry I told him about it.

      about the blood, tears, and salt.

      there may be another Waifu War on the horizon with the Mobile [that is if we ever get a chance to vote on a new character that may or may not be even happening.]

      We must prepare for that possible day. For the safety of the young ones.

      Indeed, rounding out the anticipated SG1 cast would be my top priority, just so we have the best chance of getting the SG1 canon story in SG2, perhaps ala Calamity Trigger Reconstruction in Blazblue Continuum Shift EXTEND.

      As much as I want Annie, Scythana and Venus, I can agree with that.

      Important characters first. Plus Marie would be sick to play as (even as a mobile version)

      Plus I want to see if Aesil will be canon or not. It's not really wanting her at DDB levels (sorry Dee), rather a morbid curiosity to see if it's going to happen. Only time will tell.

      Besides the fact that this one was started first and is noticeably sillier, what's the difference between this thread and the one Magma started? It's for the same discussion imo.

      Consider how the original logo has the same braided pigtails, and is missing the same eye as Annie.

      Counterpoint: OBJECTION! Valentine is also missing an eye! and the braids are of no significance because it's been stated Annie changes her hair every few years!

      Well on another note, since this is an early design, who's to say it was based on Annie? What if they scrapped the logo but then reused it later as part of a new character called Annie? There's no specific timeline.

      I have no idea why I'm still arguing against this Annie being the Skullgirl would actually be radical.

      EDIT: Obviously the Skullgirl isn't Annie. It must be DDB himself attempting to shift the blame!

      Annie's been around longer than that logo. Back in 2006 actually.

      Normally I'd ask for some proof but I'm pretty much done with this debate. I'm sold, Annie very much might've been originally planned to feature as the Skullgirl. Wonder how that would've turned out. What would prompt that? Will these questions be answered in SG Mobile's prequel story?

      I myself always though SG Mobile, as a prelude, would focus on SkullgirlS's story and feature Queen Nancy as the Skullgirl, but seeing as Peacock and Pinwheel are in the game, characters who couldn't have existed 7 years ago, the idea of the story being a prequel gets even more confusing.

      I'm kind of thinking Annie might actually be less likely now since she's already getting an appearance in Indivisible. The reason she was chosen for the SG cameo is because they wanted to go with someone not previously playable, so the same logic may follow with SG2 skipping her in favor of characters we've yet to see at all.

      Or she may be more likely to be in sg2 since she is in indivisible. She will already be familiar to the artists and she will have more "material*" to work with since she will have already been sort of added to a game.

      Material*-voice actor/s (mainly for sagan) , ideas for the type of effects she may use will be more fleshed out since she may need effects for indivisible, her fighting style will be easier to build off of. Stuff like that.
