Black Dahlia is featured in Season 1 Pass, which has various characters and bonuses. Annie of the Stars, Umbrella, and Marie will comprise the lineup.

Skullgirls update Season 1 Pass

January is set to be a big month for Skullgirls 2nd Encore on Switch, with the team confirming that a massive update and release of Season 1 Pass are planned.

With the update, the game on Switch will have parity with other platforms. It will replace the previous version “with almost a full rewrite of the port’s codebase, fixing numerous issues specific to that version.” Players can look forward to enhanced load times that are over twice as fast as before, better performance, sharper UI, and smoother online play.
