Skullgirls' Latest Lady Fighter Is All About Decap Attacks

Downloadable 2D fighting game Skullgirls has a new contender, Ms Fortune. Who is she? And why is she so gross? Mostly because none of her extremities or her cat-head seem too well attached.

Skullgirls co-creator Mike Z offers us a little walkthrough of what makes Ms Fortune special. Not only can she bowl her noggin at her opponent, her head becomes a separately controlled entity when she does. There's also the rather icky-looking "ball of yarn" attack, which actually appears to involve Ms. Fortune wrapping her opponent in sinew and batting them around.

This is a 10-minute education on one character, which might teach you a thing or two about this unusual old-school fighting game. Skullgirls will be out for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in early 2012, after a brief delay.

    Looks pretty cool, glad people are still making 2D fighting games.

    Someone should really adapt that old flash game Bible Fight to consoles though. With the muay thai Jesus who burys opponents under a pile of bread and fish as an attack. Classic stuff.

    Considering the issues SF2HD had with keeping it under the size limit for XBLA, I can't believe this is going to make it as a downloadable title. The detail in the animation is amazing.

    THE Mike Z?

    Is a designer for this game? Wow didn't know that
