Skullgirls Encore, the upcoming re-release of Skullgirls, will include an optional mode inspired by Typing of the Dead. During a Twitch livestream, design director Mike Zaimont announced that Lab Zero Games will add “Typing of the Skullgirls Encore” mode in the new version of the game. The mode will require players to quickly type out words when using a super-move. Bonuses to damage will depend on the player’s accuracy and speed when typing out the challenge. The option will be available in Story, Arcade and Versus modes, but not Tournament or Online.
Skullgirls is re-launching as Skullgirls Encore in January due to a split between Lab Zero Games and Konami.
