Lab Zero Games' fighting game Skullgirls will come to the PlayStation 4 with last generation controller support after months of testing.
Developed by Naughty Dog's John Bellomy in his free time, the coming PlayStation 4 build of Skullgirls Encore will feature plug-and-play support for PlayStation 3 arcade sticks and controllers. Lab Zero CEO Peter Bartholow mentioned that sticks such as the Mad Catz Arcade FightStick Tournament Edition as well as custom controller boards including the Cthulhu series of boards will work immediately with this build. No other arcade sticks or custom boards were mentioned if they were compatible.
As long as the controllers when plugged in are generic USB controller-based and not recognized as a DualShock 3 controller, they will immediately work. Bartholow expressed that Akishop Customs' PS360+ controller board as well as the popular inPin PlayStation 2 to PS3 converter.
Still in development, Lab Zero will release their driver for developers to use and update as long as they attribute the original developers. A compatibility list will be available online in the coming future so stay tuned! For now, check out a demonstration of the existing code by Lab Zero's Mike Zaimont after the jump!
