Last year at Anime Expo 2016, Lab Zero and Hidden Variable Studios remarked on how they were working on Skullgirls Mobile, a version of the game for Apple iOS and Android devices. Earlier this year, we learned Line Mobile would help with distribution. Now, we have a release date! Skullgirls Mobile will debut on May 25, 2017.
This is very nearly a worldwide debut. People in North America, South America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and the Philippines will all see the game on May 25, 2017. This comes after an April 12, 2017 soft launch in Canada and the Netherlands.
In addition to the release date, the Skullgirls Mobile announcement also comes with a hint of things to come to the game. Prologue chapters will be added for characters, offering new information on them. It also notes popular characters could become playable characters. More information on possible additions will be revealed eventually on the Skullgirls Mobile forums.
Skullgirls is available on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Xbox 360, and PC. It is also available in arcades in Japan.
