Indie fighter Skullgirls is bringing the battle to iOS and Android later this year, with a game that blends fighting game action with RPG mechanics to create something . . . well, just look at it.
Indivisible, the new RPG from the creators of Skullgirls, has been funded on Indiegogo to the tune of $1.5 million. It wasn’t looking good for a stretch—they had to extend their funding period—but 65 hours remain in the campaign.
Good news and bad news, Skullgirls fans: the 2D fighting game's third DLC character, the Egyptian-inspired sorta-blood-mage Eliza, is out now on PC and PS3, free for the next three months. The game's Vita and PS4 versions, however, have been postponed to early 2015. Look above for a taste of Eliza's fighting style.
When fighting game fan "Dan Hibiki" got a strange message while playing Skullgirls, he did what anyone with a Twitter account might do: he contacted the game developers to ask what was going on. Little did he know that the message, pictured below, was something that only those who pirated the game could see.
Everything's okay, or at least, will be okay, according to Skullgirls developers Lab Zero: the game will live on.
Lab Zero, the makers of the fighting game Skullgirls, says Konami, which published the game to Xbox Live and PlayStation Network in 2012, has asked Microsoft and Sony to take the game off the services.
The past few years produced a huge amount of great games and a surprisingly decent amount of them have well-developed characters that are hard to forget. And, of course, some of them look really attractive.
It was one of the year's feel-good stories when Lab Zero Games raised over $800,000 so they could make more content for indie fighting game Skullgirls.
Last month, the developers of Skullgirls launched a crowdsourcing campaign, asking for $150,000 to introduce a single new character into the game.
That escalated quickly.
Lab Zero Games, the guys behind 2D fighting game Skullgirls, want to add a new character to the game's roster. To do this, they're going to set up an IndieGoGo on February 25. And ask for $150,000.
This was somewhat lost in the shuffle of Wednesday's announcement that Skullgirls, the 2D fighter currently available on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live, would be getting a PC version. The game's official Twitter feed says that PC and PS3 gamers will be able to play together thanks to cross-platform compatibility,…

If I were to punch you in the stomach and you could punch me back, we'd call that a fair fight. (No offense, but hopefully I'd win.)
We've got some good downloadable stuff on the PlayStation store, including the cross-play compatible The Pinball Arcade for both Vita and PS3, and Skullgirls for the PS3. Austin Wintory's amazing Journey soundtrack is available for download (it's also available on iTunes), and Persona 3: FES is now available as a PS2…
There are fighting games that seek to capitalize on the sexier aspects of girl-on-girl fighting, and then there's Skullgirls, where characters like Double trade sexy for scary with a twist of Gradius.
