Developer Lab Zero Games has announced that a new version of its fighting game, Skullgirls Encore, will come back to the PlayStation Network in the US on Tuesday, Feb. 11. The developer has yet submit the game to Xbox Live for approval, but said that release date for that version and an international release are coming "as soon as possible."

Originally released last year, Skullgirls was pulled down from PSN and XBLA in December 2013 at Konami's request, after Lab Zero ended its business relationship with the publisher. The PC version of the game that was released after the console version was never taken down from Steam since it was handled by a different publisher, Marvelous AQL.

All existing owners of Skullgirls will get a free copy of Skullgirls Encore, which also includes a lot of little improvements to gameplay and extra content.

You can find the full patch notes on the game's official website.
