A major update, as well as the Season 1 Pass DLC, will appear for the Nintendo Switch version of Skullgirls 2nd Encore. This update will boost some performance and load issues. This patch will go live on January 3, 2023.
In a tweet reply, the Skullgirls Twitter account confirmed that the Season 1 Pass will be separate from the update. While it will come out on the same day, it will be paid DLC.
According to the Steam page for the Season 1 Pass of Skullgirls 2nd Encore, the DLC it will contain includes:
- Annie of the Stars (Character)
- Umbrella (Character)
- Black Dahlia (Character)
- Marie (Character)
- Skullgirl Umbrella (Voice Pack + Palette)
- Palette Pack
- Digital Art Compendium
For those who play online, this patch will also improve the online play experience. While Skullgirls 2nd Encore has been out on the Nintendo Switch for a while, the Switch version never got the Season 1 Pass. This meant that only players on Steam or the PlayStation were able to access DLC characters like Black Dahlia or Umbrella until this announcement.
Skullgirls 2nd Encore is readily available on the Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, and Windows PC. It will appear on Xbox One and Xbox Series X in early 2023. The Skullgirls 2nd Encore major update for the Nintendo Switch will appear on January 3, 2023.
