LINE Skullgirls Mobile is a free-to-play mobile spin-off/prequel of the original Skullgirls developed by Hidden Variable Studios. It was released for iOS and Android under LINE Corporation on May 25th 2017.

There are three game modes: Story, Prize Fights and Daily Events.

On January 15th, 2018, LINE Corporation will separate from Autumn Games and Hidden Variable Studios, resulting the LINE version of Skullgirls Mobile becoming inactive permanently.[1] The original Autumn Games version will be released on January 18th, 2018.[2]

​Main Attraction Edit

Cerebella's Origin Story, added on December 21st, 2017. This chapter takes place a year prior to Skullgirls, where Cerebella, Beatrix, and Feng are tested to see who will become the next agent for the Medicis.

Prize FightsEdit

Prize Fights is a game mode that requires the player to be at least level 10 to unlock it.

The mode put the player in a continuous string of 3v3 fights where they choose 3 among their collection of fighters and get matched to another team of 3 (created by either other players of guests having played the mode). The matchmaking method is based on the total fighter score of the 3 chosen fighters (as a result, choosing higher-point fighters results in getting matched with tougher opponents). If the player wins a match, they will get an amount of score that counts towards reward tiers of the Prize Fights' theme (for example, 'Medici Shakedown' theme contains Canopy-Coin reward tiers). The more the player wins, the longer win streak and, therefore, the higher score multiplier will be so the player can get to higher reward tiers.

The following are Prize Fights' themes:

  • Blood Sport (Eliza)
  • Casket Match (Valentine)
  • Cutting Room Floor (Peacock)
  • Medici Shakedown (Canopy Coins)
  • No Pain, No Gain (Painwheel)
  • One-Man Band (Big Band)
  • Rumble Pack (Beowulf)
  • Two to Tangle (Filia)
  • Dame of Thrones (Parasoul)
  • Medici Pit Fighting (Canopy Coins and Gold Moves)
    • Medici Fight Club
    • Medici Crime Spree
    • Medici Heist
  • High Wire Hijinks (Cerebella)
  • Hot Off the Presses (Skill Points)
  • Second to Nun (Double)
  • Show Me Your Moves (Move Relics)

Daily EventsEdit

Daily Events is a game mode unlocked by finishing 'Who's The Boss?' in the Story Mode.

The mode is akin to a daily Story Mode with varying sets of fights and rewards based on themes. Rewards for completion are Canopy Coins, a Special Move and a Blockbuster move. The quality of the moves (Bronze, Silver or Gold) depends on the difficulty (Basic, Advanced and Expert, respectively).

Each day in a week has a different theme:

  • Mon: After School Special (Filia)
  • Tue: Walking The Beat (Big Band)
  • Wed: Routine Checkup (Valentine); Wednesday Night Rawr (Beowulf)
  • Thu: Anger Management (Painwheel)
  • Fri: Tickets to the Fun Show (Cerebella); Double Feature (Double)
  • Sat: Saturday Morning Cartoons (Peacock)
  • Sun: A Royal Audience (Parasoul); Bloody Sunday (Eliza)

Fighter CardsEdit

In lieu of a roster made up of completely different characters, Skullgirls Mobile has fighters based on six different color palettes (including the original) of cast members from Skullgirls 2nd Encore, each with a unique title besides the character's name. They are split between rankings of bronze, silver and gold (with two palettes each per rank) and each character palette is associated with its own element: fire, water, wind, light or dark. In-game, this is explained as summoning fighters from parallel dimensions through the use of Relics.
