Skullgirls Mobile Introduces Annie of the Stars in New Gameplay Trailer
Skullgirls Mobile introduces a new fighter to the roster in a gameplay trailer, Annie of the Stars. Cursed to live forever, she vows to stop Skull Heart.
Skullgirls Mobile is introducing a brand new character to their already all star roster, Annie of the Stars. While there’s no official release date for Annie, she will be arriving in the upcoming 4.4 update for Skullgirls within the next couple of months and for 2nd Encore early 2021:
Fiercer than she looks, bravest in the cosmos, she is ANNIE OF THE STARS and she is joining the cast of Skullgirls Mobile later this year, and Skullgirls 2nd Encore in 2021!

Though the devs don’t have full details on how players will acquire her just yet, it will be similar to the approach used for Fukua’s launch back in 4.2. Meanwhile you can check out both her trailer, done in a really cool VHS tape advert style, and the OST that comes with her from Vincent Diamante – “The Stars and Stage are Set” (download the MP3 here):
Here stage was also revealed, known as Sound Stage 15 at Meridian Studios:
Anne’s official description reads as follows: “Cursed by the Skull Heart to never grow up, Annie has been alive for centuries. Over that time, she’s made it her personal quest to stop the Skull Heart once and for all. To that end, she has acquired numerous skills and items, including her remote parasite, Sagan. Even performing on television works to further her goals as she hopes to educate the world about the dangers of the Skull Heart.
“Fiercer than she looks, bravest in the cosmos, she is ANNIE OF THE STARS!”
As stated in the FAQ, Hidden Variable collaborated closely with the whole team at Lab Zero to create Anne. And while the teams “would LOVE to have Annie simply be the first of many new Skullgirls characters,” according to them “a lot will depend on how well her launch on Mobile and 2nd Encore performs.”
Though the Switch version of Skullgirls 2nd Encore may have a few bugs at the moment (and 12 of the game’s 23 stages are currently “locked” on the Switch version of the game), Skullgirls is still one of the best fighting games ever made. You can check out our review of the title here.
