Skullgirls gets XBLA date, PSN one on the way

Scrappy 2D fighter Skullgirls has been given a release date on XBLA.

Developer Reverge Labs confirmed that the game will arrive on April 11. A PSN release is still to be nailed down, though it’s aiming for April 10. Community managers Peter Bartholow revealed all on NeoGAF, explaining that a recent leak on had meant the team had to stay hush hush on its real date.

“We have passed Microsoft certification, literally within the last 30 minutes,” Bartholow said. “The game will be released on XBLA worldwide on April 11, for 1200 [Microsoft] Points.

“I want to apologise for having to leave you in the dark for so long. It has been agonising, and Microsoft’s ‘leak’ on didn’t help at all. We would have denied it sooner, but the reality is that Microsoft was still trying to slot us on April 4 as late as [Friday] morning.”
