Skullgirls 2nd Encore

Last week, it was announced that Skullgirls 2nd Encore will be released on the Nintendo Switch “soon”. Even better: the game will also be available both at retail and on the Nintendo eShop!

Here’s the debut trailer:

Skullgirls is a fast-paced 2D fighting game that puts players in control of fierce warriors in an extraordinary Dark Deco world. It’s a modern take on classic arcade fighters with a high-definition, hand-drawn twist! With fourteen colorful characters, a beautifully illustrated story mode, in-depth tutorials, and innovative game systems, Skullgirls has something for everyone, from fighting game newcomers to hardcore fans. It’s a one-of-a-kind, action-packed game, complete with awesome combos and an intriguing story!

Work x Work

Today, FuRyu has announced that their upcoming RPG on Nintendo Switch, Work x Work, has been delayed. Instead of September 27th, as initially announced, it will now release on October 4th. The press release doesn’t even mention a specific reason, and only mentions vague “various circumstances”. No doubt FuRyu found the original release date a bit too crowded to its liking…
