Skullgirls Encore Will Feature “The Typing of the Skullgirls Encore” Mode

on December 22, 2013 1:19 PM

The re-release of Skullgirls entitled Skullgirls Encore will include a new mode entitled “The Typing of the Skullgirls Encore,” which was demonstrated on EightySix’s Twitch account.

In “Typing of the Skullgirls,” each player’s display bar for super moves fills automatically. Once a player uses a super, a timed typing exercise appears, which gives damage based on a player’s typing accuracy and quickness. Accurately typed words do 1.5x damage, “right but not perfect” phrases gives standard damage, and completely missed phrases cut dealt damage to 10%. However, the totals are opposite when an AI opponent uses a super move on a player; players avoid damage based on their ability to type phrases associated with incoming attacks.

“Typing of the Skullgirls” will be available in Story, Arcade and Versus modes, but not in Tournament or Online modes. The mode is planned for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and the PC release of Skullgirls Encore on January 2014.
