    With Skullgirls having been released on every other modern platform available, the Devs decided to take the game to Android and IOS as a Free-to-play game. the mobile version is developed by Hidden Variable Studios and will arrive in this spring. no word on an exact release date or even which markets its coming for first.The story itself will serve as a prequel to the first Skullgirls.

    @lcie nimbus

    JOKE

    Anyway joking aside, how can people play fighting games on mobile? :wtf:

    I least hope controls can be used. I will import that to my shield to play and hope it has online too. (I already have the ps4 game so good stuff. :P

    I hope a sequel comes out and have more characters, i dunno how people play a game with like 12 only 12 characters especially 3-3 battles. That like KOF games with only 4 teams, X-men vs street fighter with only 6 x-men and street fighter instead of 8.:unsure:

    You should use the normal font size and stop centering your posts. It will make them more readable.

    Actually, no. Centering and using a big font is not a "style of writing". It's a style of presentation and most people *don't* have their own style - most people conform to the commonly accepted and expected standard.

    Oh, so you
    do not see how

    incredibly moronic this style looks? :glare:

    Sorry...but this sort of creativity is only distracting people from the main message rather than helping them. Between the rules, it just screams almost childish enthousiasm, thus making it harder for the audience to take the actual message serious.


    Speaking of the topic: as far as I know fighters, I sort of liked skullgirls. Yes, the fact that it featured a line-up of beautifully-drawn sexy ladies helped on that. But like others, I kind of wonder why they're going mobile. Are they sponsored by android-pairable bluetooth fighting sticks? :unsure:

    There is BLUETOOTH FIGHT STICKS? :o

    I thought there was only wired ones, cause is all i can find, and see people using. Besides, wouldn't using bluetooth on android use up more battery? We have android tv anyway so we can just use that and plug one in, least hope it has online/local multiplayer mode. This kind of game would be perfect for Nvidia shield branded android or any other kind of android with controls attached, i would hate using touch screen for fighting game, reminds me of Psvita/NDS/3DS games.... least it wasn't mandatory. :P

    Well I like watching people play skull girls cause is so interesting how they do all those 2 minute combos that seem to go on forever especially for the standard of rules that is there, is not easy especially if you have to creatively make them up yourself instead of a trial challenge mode with basic combos to help beginners. Some games have hard time trying to introduce new player to enjoy the game since they lack either proper tutorial modes, or training modes to prepare them for the kind of online shenanigans of versus mode or VS CPU mode.

    Some games do a very great job in that like Killer instinct, Guilty Gear Xrd, Blaz blue, and skull girls, then games like Street fighter 4 and 5, Mortal Kombat X and lot more do not. To be honest i do appreciate the effort done for tutorial and mid level to advance level training for helping people get equal skill even against high rank players. The fact that they do have such impressive tutorials lead me to believe the game was designed for "Hardcore, competitive, tournaments esports type player" Instead of casual party players like super smash bros, and early Marvel Vs capcom games. Considering Skull girls was based on Marvel Vs capcom 2 which is mostly just a huge fan service "HAVE FUN" kind of cross over game, this is focused too much on making strategic split second decisions on reaction that only people who train for so many years can master., and plague online modes with people who are too good and not same skill, which is most of the problem i have with fighting games now. :unsure:

    Is part of the reason why i still enjoy early street fighter 2 game, since is just pure basic stuff with standard attacks and special moves, it seem a bit simple for anyone and skill level was hardly a thing, now is mostly watching professional people play these games, doing so many long combos until someone is defeated and hardly seen much of a game.:ninja:
