Skullgirls lives on! The popular 3-on-3 fighting game first launched in 2012, and released it’s 2nd Encore update in 2015. Now, in 2021, the game has announced it’s first season pass.

Skullgirls Season Pass 1 will kick off with Annie of the Stars, a character who made her playable debut in Skullgirls Mobile some time ago. She’s set to roll out in “early access” on Steam in March, with a full release planned for May on PlayStation and Steam.

As well as Annie, the Season Pass promises three additional characters, for four DLC characters in total. These characters will come with new stages, music, story modes and colour palettes. If the Season Pass does well, there’s also the chance of a fifth character being made in the future.

The launch of the Season Pass brings with it several updates to the game, including a balance patch and more. For further info, it’s best to check out the comprehensive FAQ released alongside the announcement.

In the meantime, check out Annie’s teaser above, and get ready to enjoy Skullgirls in 2021.
