Its seems like the developers of Skullgirls can never catch a break. This time around it's due to the recent split of Lab Zero (The developers) and Konami, who helped to publish the game on both the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. Unknown to the even the CEO right up until he was notified by Sony, Konami requested the game to be removed from both consoles marketplaces.
Currently Lab Zero is doing everything they can to put out a new version of the game for PSN (and likely XBL as well), but they're under some serious time pressure.
A designer was quoted as saying, "If it doesn't [get approved], Skullgirls is going to disappear until everybody comes back from winter break. Sony's QA goes home on the 17th, which means we have to give this to them immediately."
The only reason I could see Konami taking down the game would be because their logo is on it or because they won't be making any future money in it, but I don't know for sure; I don't know the politics of developers and publishers very well.Add a comment
