It's (almost) Beowulf time! New Meridian's celebrity wrestler and Gigan slayer Beowulf will be made available to Steam, PS3, and Xbox 360 players on April 17th. As with all previous DLC characters, Beowulf will be free for three months after his release. If you redeem him in that time period, you own him forever. Don't miss out!
To celebrate the occasion, have a peek at Beowulf's trailer below:
Additionally, Lab Zero Games have spilled a bean or two about the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita releases of Skullgirls. Owing to the sheer amount of new content included in the next-gen editions (All previous DLC characters, new game modes, and other miscellaneous unannounced features), Skullgirls on PS4/Vita will be released as Skullgirls 2nd Encore. Lab Zero Games was happy to announce all players across the PlayStation family of consoles will be able to play against each other online! Skullgirls 2nd Encore will also be cross-buy, meaning that buying a copy on PS4 will net you a digital download on PSVita, and vice-versa.
Curious how Robo-Fortune's coming along? Lab Zero Games released a video showing off all their progress on Skullgirls' latest character, accompanied by the never-before-heard stage music of Meridian Area Rapid Transit!
Finally, Big Band slims down in a new line of plushies from Sanshee! The first Skullgirls merchandise of its kind, Lil' Band is perfect for snuggling, putting on your nightstand in dramatic poses, and making trio players rip their hair out. He's too cute for me not to mention, so give him a home!
