Game Preview – Skull Girls release date (sort of) & a new character


Skull Girls, the first all-female fighting game (outside japan), is coming along rather nicely with some news. First off they nailed down a release date: early 2012. Yeah I know it’s not quite zeroed in, but they say the extra time will be worth it. Now for the real news, the people at Autumn Games & KONAMI reveled a new character for the growing harem of brawlers here. The name’s Painwheel and once she was a normal everyday school girl until she was kidnapped, experimented on, and mutated into a psychopathic killing machine. Now she struggles to keep her sanity in check all the while being used to win the Skull Girls tournament; will she be able to escape from this less than ideal predicament? We’ll all find out in 2012.
