Skullgirls OST - River King Casino Stage

Skullgirls OST - River King Casino Stage

River King Casino is a stage in Skullgirls Encore. Taking place in the heart of New Meridian's River King Casino, the decor consists of slot machines, blackjack tables, and a host of gamblers looking to win big. The casino is a Medici Mafia hangout and many members can be found there.

River King Casino appears in Squigly's story mode, and is unlocked by default for use in multiplayer and training. The stage also appears in Big Band's story mode.


Being one of the biggest and brightest buildings in New Meridian, it's only fair that the River King Casino's interior be decorated to match. The spacious gambling floor houses not only blackjack and slots, but a large octopus-shaped water fountain, glass tubes through which Dagonians swim, and a massive revolving aquarium that spans the entire breadth of the stage.

NPC CharactersEdit

The fully animated NPCs that appear in the background are submitted by Skullgirls Indigogo backers who donated at least $1,000 USD to the campaign. They appear in six different sets and the set chosen is rotated every time the stage is selected. The NPCs on stage also always remain in the same place. All NPCs excluding Beatrix are original non-Skullgirls related characters.

The following displays a list detailing the various NPCs, being ordered by the set number from left to right of the stage:

Skullgirls - Early Work-in-Progress River King Casino Music - Piano Melody

Skullgirls - Early Work-in-Progress River King Casino Music - Piano Melody

The stage music while it was still work in progress. This version features the first take on the stage's basic melody. With the melody being established, Michiru Yamane, the composer, began layering other instruments in for the final track.


  • The River King Casino can be seen at a distance in the Streets of New Meridian and Medici Tower stages.
  • River King Casino houses half of the original characters promised to backers who donated more than $1,000 during the Keep Skullgirls Growing! fundraising campaign. The remaining half appear in the Glass Canopy stage.
  • Riccardo and Lawrence appear in the background, once again harassing Minette. Additionally Vitale and Ottomo appear watching the fight from a balcony.
  • According to Big Band's origin story in Skullgirls Mobile, Lorenzo Medici had Vitale create the plans for the casino 16 years prior to the game, calling it "Project River King". This was done as a result of his illegal gambling operation being foiled by Big Band and Irvin, and he decided the project would be "fully legit".
