If you like your fighting games strictly on a two-dimensional plane and with just a single gender, you might want to start paying attention to Skullgirls, a new independently developed fighting game coming to Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network.
Skullgirls is the work of Reverge Labs, lead by ex-Pandemic developer and fighting game expert Mike “Mike Z” Zaimont. It’s a combo-laden girl-versus-girl brawl, pitting girls with deadly hair and short skirts against each other in mortal combat. And now, after making a few appearances at fighting game tournaments and conventions, Skullgirls is coming to consoles.
Expect Skullgirls to hit XBLA and PSN between June and August, with our first official hands-on preview happening next month.
