Skullgirls 2nd Encore is introducing new fighter Annie of the Stars to its roster this March, developer Hidden Variable has confirmed, and three additional DLC characters will follow.
When Annie’s DLC debuts in March, it’ll be in the form of a Steam early access release, which the studio will continue to balance until it’s satisfied the character is ready for the primetime. This initial early access version will include Annie (who was initially designed for Skullgirls Mobile) and her stage, Sound Stage 17, while the full and final DLC release, currently anticipated to arrive on Steam and PlayStation some time in May, will add her Story Mode.
Hidden Variable says that “due to unique technical complications” Annie won’t be immediately available on Switch. However, it will share more details once it has a timetable on availability.
