Autumn Games and Hidden Variable have announced that Black Dahlia, the latest downloadable content character for Skullgirls 2nd Encore, will be available on March 29 for PlayStation 4 and PC, and on March 31 for Nintendo Switch. This addition comes as a highly anticipated update for the popular fighting game.

Skullgirls 2nd Encore is currently accessible on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam. It is also available on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PS Vita, but these versions will not receive any future DLC. The game can also be found on mobile platforms, with Skullgirls Mobile available for iOS through the App Store and Android via Google Play.

Black Dahlia is a unique character that brings new gameplay mechanics to the table. Her key Special Move utilizes a massive gun-arm, which fires slow-moving explosive rounds that detonate on contact. These explosive rounds don’t have the fullscreen reach like other zoning tools, making her more effective at mid-range, where she can approach alongside them using her forward dash and exclusive “Onslaught” jump.

The Onslaught ability allows Black Dahlia to leap towards opponents and attack from an optimal angle. It can be executed from both the ground and the air, and the ground version’s distance covered adjusts based on her proximity to the opponent.

The addition of Black Dahlia as a DLC character in Skullgirls 2nd Encore is an exciting development for fans of the game. With her unique abilities and gameplay mechanics, players can look forward to exploring new strategies and tactics in battles. As Black Dahlia makes her debut on PlayStation 4, PC, and Nintendo Switch, this update is sure to breathe new life into the already popular fighting game, keeping the Skullgirls community engaged and entertained for the foreseeable future.
