Skullgirls, Revenge Labs' downloadable game coming sometime soon ("early 2012" is the latest word) on PSN and Xbox Live, is a 2D fighter with a heavy multiplayer component. That doesn't mean it doesn't have a story explaining who its characters are, how they acquired their skills and powers, and just what the heck "Skullgirl" means, anyway.
That trailer above, which Revenge released on Friday, clues everyone in on the Skullgirls canon, then walks you through the main characters and the moves they'll use in gameplay. For more details, including the exclusive trophies PS3 users will get with the game, head on over to PlayStation Blog.
