The physical version of Skull Girls 2nd Encore will retail at $39.99 USD. The physical release of Skull Girls 2nd Encore will be available for pre-order starting October 31st and will be open for pre-order for two weeks after that. This limited physical release can be pre-ordered here, on Lab Zero Games’ online retail store. The physical release will include: a disc copy of Skull Girls 2nd Encore, a slip cover of the game, a soundtrack “special selections” CD, and a full color instruction manual for Skull Girls 2nd Encore.
Pre-orders begin on Monday October 31st, Halloween but there is also a goal number for the pre-orders of Skulls Girls 2nd Encore’s physical release. If there are over 10 thousand orders placed for the physical release, developer Lab Zero Games will patch the Japanese voice acting for Skull Girls 2nd Encore for no extra charge. In a tweet, the company explained that this is due to licensing issues with the Japanese voice acting. It would be too expensive otherwise, but if the goal of 10 thousand orders is met, it would cover the cost of licensing.
.@Warped_Echo If we can lock in 10k or more pre-orders, Japanese voices will be added. The licensing costs are really expensive.
