Skullgirls is a 2D fighting game by Reverge Labs that is now available Xbox LIVE Arcade and PSN. The game costs 1200 MS Points/$14.99.
This game is unique in that you play as a female warrior in a Dark Deco world. The story line is something along the lines of fighters battling it out to gain control of a mysterious artifact called the Skull Heart. It has the power to make the winner’s wishes come true.
“Fans have been eagerly awaiting Skullgirls since we announced it a year ago. Reverge’s passion and love for this game is clear in the artistry of the story and characters and balance in the gameplay,” said Jason Donnell, president and COO, Autumn Games. “Skullgirls delivers a state-of-the-art fighting game experience that will appeal to everyone, from tournament level fighters to casual fans, at a $15 price point.”
I saw Skullgirls at PAX East 2011 and 2012 and it looked awesome! I think it will be very popular in the tourney scene.
