Thank Lab Zero Games' CEO Peter Bartholow for this update:

It’s been a little more than two years since Skullgirls‘ Indiegogo campaign ended, and we’re nearing the end of production of the DLC that our fans funded.

The latest addition to the lineup is Beowulf, a pro wrestler loosely inspired by the epic poem of the same name. You can download Beowulf on PS3 completely free this Friday, April 17th!

A well-meaning meathead, Beowulf comes out of retirement to fight the Skullgirl only to find he’s in for much more than he bargained for.

PS4/Vita Update

Hold on to your butts, because we’ve got a bunch of new info on the PS4/PS Vita version of Skullgirls for you!

First up, Skullgirls on PS4/PS Vita will receive a slight name change — Skullgirls 2nd Encore.

Since these versions will be the ultimate Skullgirls experience, with all the new characters, new modes, and features, we wanted to differentiate it a bit from Skullgirls Encore, while also making it similar.

Why did we want to keep the subtitles similar? Because Skullgirls 2nd Encore will support cross-platform play across the entire PlayStation family: PS4, PS3, and PS Vita users will all be able to play against each other online!

Skullgirls 2nd Encore will be cross buy as well — we haven’t settled on the price yet, but you’ll get both the PS4 and PS Vita versions when you buy one. Note that current PS3 owners won’t get the new releases free — we’re putting a lot of work into these versions so we can’t just give them away, but we think the new features and improvements will be worth the upgrade!

We’ll have more information on the release date later, but hopefully this will get you more excited until then!

Robo-Fortune Update

The final Skullgirls DLC character, Robo-Fortune, is almost complete!

She’s got lasers galore, tons of puns, and comes with our most ambitious stage yet.

Everything here is still work-in-progress, but as you can see she’s coming along nicely!

Edited update based on Peter Bartholow comment replies:

  1. Skullgirls: 2nd Encore(Ultimate Edition) will have PlayStation TV support(for Vita Version)
  2. Skullgirls: Encore(PS3) & Skullgirls: 2nd Encore(Vita & PS4) will be cross-play compatible.
  3. Exclusive modes and new features for Skullgirls: 2nd Encore will be announced in the future.
  4. There might(if they can) be a Limited Retail release, for a few units of "Skullgirls: 2nd Encore"; to even an added Pre-Order bonus.
  5. Been testing various Arcade/Fight sticks, and appears they're compatible with a lot of brands even the MadCatz sticks.
  6. Vita controls are going to be worked on, to let you flick the sticks to do assists(or will be the R2/L2 button's functions).
  7. Skullgirls: 2nd Encore will have it's own Trophy set, with a few old trophies tweaked a bit...and an added :platinum:

I'm a little unsure as to why you put free in quotation marks. If it's anything like the previous dlc, it will be free for a week to a month (even if you haven't bought the game) and then become paid dlc.

He didn't say for how long this time(unless he assumes we all already know the 1 month deadline), so i'd say it's better to just add it to "Downloads List" on Friday regardless of having the game or not just to be safe.

That's what I thought you meant. I just wanted to give a head's up to anyone looking at the thread it'd likely be for a limited time only.
