Skullgirls Released This Week (Mostly)

Skullgirls, the award-winning 2D fighting game from Autumn Games and developer Reverge Labs, will be available today on the PSN in the Americas, and arrives tomorrow on XBL in the Americas, Europe, and Australia/New Zealand. You can download Skullgirls for $14.99 on the PSN or 1200 Magic Microsoft Points on XBLA. Annoyingly, those of us awaiting a European PSN release will have to wait a few more weeks.

“Fans have been eagerly awaiting Skullgirls since we announced it a year ago. Reverge’s passion and love for this game is clear in the artistry of the story and characters and balance in the gameplay,” said Jason Donnell, President and COO, Autumn Games. “Skullgirls delivers a state-of-the-art fighting game experience that will appeal to everyone, from tournament level fighters to casual fans, at a $15 price point.”
