Skullgirls release date set for April

Valentine, Peakcock, Cerebella, and the rest of the Skullgirls crew are scheduled to make their worldwide debut on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network over the next two weeks. Today, Reverge Labs' community manager Peter Bartholow stated the stylish 2D fighter will definitely appear for XBLA on April 11 at a price of 1200 Microsoft Points ($15), while the PSN release date will arrive roughly around the same time, if not earlier.

“Unfortunately, we still cannot be 100% certain on PSN release date,” he said over the weekend. “North American PSN release will very probably be April 10th, but we are still awaiting final confirmation. And as you might expect, the PSN version will be $14.99.”

Skullgirls is the brainchild of tournament video game fighter Mike “Mike Z” Zaimont and designer Alex Ahad, who teamed with Reverge Labs to bring their vision for a hardcore, 2D fighting game to life. See why fighting fans are eager to take the Skullgirls through their paces our Skullgirls hands-on preview.

    Yay! I'm looking forward to this. I need to satisfy my beat-em-up craving after the disappointment of Soul Calibur V and my personal Capcom boycott.

    Grimm alerted me to this game's existence way back on TDar 170. Sadly, we'll never get to read his review of it. Regardless, this is one of the most gorgeous games I've ever seen, and I can't freaking wait to play it.

    A fighting game potentially weirder than BlazBlue? DO IT!

    Woo hoo! Been waiting since last Summer for this game. Glad it's finally coming out, and it looks better than ever!

    Can't wait for Skullgirls, I've been keeping up with the game for a while now.

    For $15, I want a demo first since I could buy alot of other things i wanted for that much if it had been $10 I would have instanlty dropped the money for it.

    Ugh I know. The game industry is cannibalizing itself with this nonsense. Why would I spend $15 on a download only game when I could go pick up something like Bioshock or Streetfighter 4 for $10? And before you say "to support the developer" you really can't anymore. Games released for $60 are down to $40 a month later then $20 within a year.

    Finally! Been keeping an eye out for this game for a while, good to know it's at last coming out! ^^ And yeah... my money would be on the game coming out on the 10th for PSN, since it's Tuesday, the day in which PSN is updated. Otherwise, it might come out until the 17th >>;
