It’s been a little over a month since Autumn Games and Konami decided to sever their business ties to one another. Since then, Konami decided to request that SkullGirls, the popular fighting game made by Autumn Games and Konami, be removed from both PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade. Konami asked that PSN remove SkullGirls by December 17th, and Xbox Live Arcade remove theirs by December 31st. News of the games delisting came about due to an announcement made by the game’s Design Director Mike Zaimont on the SkullGirls Weekly Stream channel.

Zaimont stated that Konami made the request straight to Sony, completely bypassing Autumn Games. Autumn Games had to find out from Sony. He also said that if the team can finish the new build of SkullGirls before the deadlines, the game may not be removed from PSN. If the deadline is not made however, you can say bye-bye to SkullGirls on PSN.

The new version of SkullGirls coming to Xbox Live Arcade will be published by Marvelous AQL, the only downside is that the property won’t transfer over completely to Marvelous from Konami until after December 31st.

If these deadlines aren’t met, don’t be too surprised to see SkullGirls disappear. Zaimont also stated that he still was unsure as to whether owners of the Konami version will still be able to compete online after their version is removed from the digital stores.
