Update: Autumn Games says that this is isn’t the correct release date and aren’t sure how official the date is. We’ll keep you up to date on its release.

Skullgirls is one of the most hotly anticipated original fighting games to come out in some time from Reverge Labs and Konami. They’ve been showing the game off at conventions for the past year and settling on a release sometime in Early 2012. A Marketplace listing showed up on Xbox.com and had a mysterious April 4 date attached. Could that be the release date? There’s been talk of a March/April release since it’s been rated very recently, but Early 2012 does include April. We’ve reached out to Autumn Games, the publisher, for confirmation on the release date but we’ll keep you up to date on whenever these girls want to fight.
