Alternate Unused Story Endings Discovered in Skullgirls Game Data

    Recently an interesting discovery was made within the game files of the PC version of Skullgirls; originally the game was planned to have multiple choice endings. Ultimately these additional endings were abandoned because the team at Reverge Labs did not have the manpower needed to implement multiple choices in SG's then very simple story mode engine.

    Despite these alternate routes never having been completed they were still fully scripted and those scripts were left in the game files. You can find the alternate endings for all of the characters below, so read on if you're interested in more What Ifs of the Skullgirls universe!

    Please note that Double has only a single storyline. She has no alternate endings.
    Big Band, Squigly and Fukua also only have a single ending as they were made after it had been established that everyone only gets one ending.

    Also please note that the scripts from in engine are very confusingly laid out and not really meant to be easily read by humans. As the names of who is speaking in each section is not stored in the files and there are no completed story mode images I've had to make some assumptions on who is talking, or what exactly is happening in some scenes. I'm pretty confident I got them all correct, but it's only fair to let you know.

    Below I've transcribed the entire game script. They are identical to how you see the stories unfold in the actual game right up until you defeat Marie, so you can skip ahead if you don't want to read the entire thing.

    Better than Bella's regular ending.

    oohhh dang... there goes the ERSB rating right there. Now I want to see the alt ending peacock. Would it be like the original Peacock with it being super dark?

    I can assure you that Peacock's alternate ending is anything but dark. It's completely bonkers. I'll do that one next.

    She goes into a TV all Persona 4 style and meets with Annie, Right? DDB would have loved that type of ending.

    It's publicly available in the game files thanks to skullmod, which Mike is totally okay with so I assume so. I very much doubt SG is ever getting alternate endings at this point anyway.

    Finished reading them all myself, some of them are pretty surprising. For those who wish to do the same minus the snazzy formatting, they're located in the ui.gfs file in the EN localization folder. Thanks Cellsai!

    Vitale is the stout, younger man in Cerebella's in game ending. Lorenzo is the old man in Peacock's.

    Here's Peacock:

    Open Skullmod. Drag the ui.gsf file into the section that says "Drag .gsf files here". That'll create a folder called 'ui'.
    Go into ui > temp > localization > en and you'll find a bunch of text files. The stories are in the Arcade files.

    I eagerly checked out Peacock's wish ending, expecting something fucked up and maybe Skullgirl Peacock.
    I got something else entirely and I am not disappointed.

    I pretty much agree with everyone that Ending B for Cerebella is awesome.
    A lot more creepy without being unnecessarily brutal to Miss Fortune.
    (seriously I will never be over that.)

    I don't know, I liked Cerebella's cannon ending. I felt that the wish ending was actually kinda stupid. But you know who's wasn't stupid and totally in charicter? ... Peacock's

    So far Cerebella's Ending B is awful and Peacock's Ending B is radical, I can't wait to read the rest.

    Wow, this is the best. Can't wait to read more. lol I like how the Skullheart asked for Double. "She's supposed to keep people like you away from me". Funny. What I find strange is that Double is referenced as a female. I already knew Double's gender, but I thought she was just a mysterious "entity" in the game. I wonder what she really is.

    Double is technically just a genderless blob, but everyone refers to her as a she for convenience and the fact that she usually takes the form of a woman.
    I know but it can only be worse because making a wish makes everything worse.

    So you think that the fucking cartoony cyborg who smokes cigars out of her eyes and has cohorts that include bomb people, and Advil who has legs with no pants (Or even any underwear on *Gags on youknowwhatswhats*, and a bird ending that dosn't even relate to Marie and is the option of "I guess I can whish for some cool stuff" is going to be sadder than her A ending?







    you have some wierd standerds man
