Autumn Games and Hidden Variable announced that Skullgirls 2nd Encore is coming to Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. The Xbox versions of Skullgirls 2nd Encore is planned to release later this year. A new update is the works for the Switch version and a new trailer was released for DLC character Black Dahlia. Black Dahlia is currently in the works and releases in alpha this June for PC. A full release is planned for Q4 2022 on PS4 and PC through Season Pass 1. Black Dahlia joins the Switch version of Skullgirls 2nd Encore at a later date.
Read up about Black Dahlia and check out the new gameplay trailer below:
Black Dahlia’s key Special Move is using her massive gun-arm to launch slow-moving explosive rounds that detonate on contact. These explosive rounds don’t have the fullscreen reach like other zoning tools, so she’s more effective at mid-range where she can approach alongside them using her forward dash and unique “Onslaught” jump.
Onslaught is Dahlia’s unique movement ability that leaps towards the opponent allowing her to attack from the perfect angle. It can be used from the ground and the air, and the distance covered by the ground version adjusts based on how far she is from the opponent.
In future Alpha updates, Black Dahlia’s reload will be enhanced with unique rounds beyond her classic explosive shot. For example, one unique round creates a flaming hazard on the stage to enhance her zoning, while another turns her next shot into a powerful short-range buckshot. Her gun holds six rounds, after which she’ll need to reload.
Her remaining Special Moves will be focused on escaping and tricky movement, and you’ll just have to wait and find out what’s in store for her Blockbusters!
Skullgirls 2nd Encore is currently available now for PS4, Switch, and PC via Steam.
