Skullgirls 2nd Encore+ is a 2D tag team fighting game with a cast of original characters animated with traditional hand drawn techniques. Initially released in 2012, it has been periodically updated over the years with new characters and patches, culminating in the '2nd Encore+' subtitle. In 2021, a season pass was announced including the new characters Annie, Umbrella, and at least two more yet to be revealed.

The gameplay flow of Skullgirls emphasizes using resets (intentionally dropping a combo to do a mixup) to maintain momentum after landing a hit. This means the action never stops since a reset point can occur at various points in a combo. After whittling down the opponent's health with resets, players will have to utilize the combo system, their team composition, and available meter as best they can to maximize damage and KO a character. The pressure and mixup potential of certain teams can be brutal, but the set of universal defense mechanics and strong character specific reversal tools can give the defender a chance to answer back in many situations.

  • Versus series style team game: Assists, DHCs, tags, snapbacks, recoverable health, lenient chain rules, and air blocking
  • Custom assist: Choose your assist from any grounded non-super move in a character's move set.
  • Variable team size: Both players choose their own team size of 1, 2, or 3 characters. The less characters, the more health you have and damage you deal, but with less utility provided by team mechanics.
  • Undizzy and IPS (Infinite Protection System): These mechanics set rules for how combos can be structured and for how long, effectively replacing the role of hitstun deterioration. If these rules are broken, the opponent is allowed to burst out of the combo. Working around the built up undizzy value to either fit in resets or maximize damage on the fly is a key skill at a high level.
