5d ago - Lab Zero Games CEO Peter Bartholow posted up some new videos today announcing that Big Band is coming to Skullgirls Encore on PS3 this Tuesday.

To quote: He's almost here: Big Band, Skullgirls Encore's first male character, arrives for free next Tuesday, April 22nd!

Once a regular beat cop known as Ben Birdland, he fell flat when he got on the wrong side of New Meridian's corrupt police force. Birdland was broken and bent out of shape by his former colleagues, but was tuned up by Dr. Avian and ASG Lab 8. Now he is armed with a full ensemble of pneumatic weaponry, transforming him into the full fortissimo instrument of justice: "Big Band."

Big Band is Skullgirls's first male character, and lives up to his name with unique gameplay mechanics that take advantage of his tremendous size and musical motif.





Big Band's a high risk / high reward sort of character - he has a versatile and powerful moveset...

To quote: We've got some big news: Skullgirls Encore is launching on February 11th!

...wait, what? Isn't Skullgirls already out? It was! But it's currently not.

To release the new content funded by our successful Indiegogo campaign, Skullgirls had to undergo a painful publisher transition, one that required removing the game from the store entirely and resubmitting it.

But don't worry - everyone who previously purchased Skullgirls will receive Skullgirls Encore and the DLC Character Color Bundle free, which we'll detail at the end of this post.





If you haven't checked out Skullgirls since its original launch in April 2012, you'll find a lot of new features in Skullgirls Encore:

• Literally hundreds of gameplay and balance tweaks
• Faster gameplay
• The new "Drama" meter keeps combos from getting too long without compromising creativity
• Hugely expanded training mode, and still some of the best tutorials in the fighting game genre
• Improved online play
• Gorgeous new stages, with new music from the...

Lab Zero Games Unveil Skullgirls Update: Free Character and Stage

50°
59w ago - Lab Zero Games CEO Peter Bartholow unveiled a new Skullgirls update today which includes a free character and stage with details below.

To quote: Last week, Lab Zero Games, the new developer of Skullgirls, started an Indiegogo campaign to keep the game growing with the addition of new characters.

The results have simply blown us away – our amazing fans raised $150,000 to fund Squigly, our first DLC character, in under 24 hours. And now, a week later, we've more than doubled that and are well on our way to funding a second character.

So sometime this summer, all owners of Skullgirls will be able to download Squigly free! Not only will you get this awesome, parasite-infested opera singer to play with, you'll also get her story mode and a new stage.

In addition to Squigly's stage, we'll also be developing a new stage, the River King Casino, that will be also be released free. Check out this early concept sketch:

I did say it was early. But in the coming weeks, you'll see that rough sketch turn into a beautiful, hand-painted 3D stage.

In addition to an all-new track by Castlevania: Symphony of the Night composer, Michiru Yamane, this stage will feature our "Patron Saint" contributors'...
