    Two recent hour-long Skype sessions have revealed a veritable cornucopia of information regarding the expanded Skullgirls universe. Having made sizable donations to the Lab Zero Indie GoGo campaign in 2013, users St. Dorothy Kitty and Maji-Omni took the time to ask Alex Ahad some questions about the story behind the game. With additional help from TheMightyBox and Makross, the information was quickly transcribed from the calls, and then your very own Skullheart news team refined it into the clear and easy-to-read format that you see before you!

    AMAZING!

      Thanks again to Maji-Omni and St. Dorothy Kitty for making the calls, and to TheMightyBox and Makross for doing the rough compiling of all the information!

      This is second fucking Christmas.
      Every bit of info here is juicy and amazing.
      The roleplayers of tumblr will no doubt be running with this information and very soon.
      Me though?
      Just made me like Peacock and Marie's relationship even more.
      And the fact a comic would have her as the main character just makes it even better.

      And because all this magnificent story the skullgirls cannot stop after the Robo Fortune!!!

      I want see all character... I want see new versions of characters (Old Peacock, Skullheart powered Painweel).. I want see years of good history and battles!!!!

      So much possibilities... we can have not only future versions characters, but past ones! Fight with the previous Skullgirls, a Old Version Elisa in a battle with Delilah (and Delilah as character). We can have a canon timeline with all this battles in the time the characters are maded!!!!

      But I wish something: even if a SG2, SG3, SG4 are made, put in all the characters as especial ones, even the one who not appear in the history anymore (because retirement, dead, etc...). So we ever will have a incredible cast to play!!!!

      I can't stress enough how much I love What If/AU/Past versions of characters in fighting games.
      It's kinda why I dig Melty Blood.
      I mean seriously here, who wouldn't wanna play as Skullgirl Painwheel or Valentine?

      One thing I've always been impressed with about Skullgirls is how much attention they've given to the backstory and lore. The only other fightgame I can think of that's made such a serious effort is BlazBlue.

      Also, I would buy a Skullgirls comic so fucking fast, you don't even know

      Yup. I never care about removing character from playablility for story reasons. Let me play as Last Hope and Skullgirl Painwheel!

      I'm Rainbow Kitty if you want to add this username in the original post lol

      I kind of wish I had asked more questions about like how they got Carol in to the lab and the procedures taken to make her in to Painwheel, and questions about how everything went down with Fortune and her gang when she was all cut up. Ah well. Hindsight is always 20/20 :)

      I kinda actually don't wanna know how they turned Carol into Painwheel, because it was no doubt very painful and excruciating and her story mode is already pretty painful as is.

      I guess Alex Ahad changed his mind about Rommelgrad, or he's just inconsistent with details.

      I assume that Rommelgrad was a country with a leader and a government at some point, but fell into anarchy during the War, so it's basically just a town now. A country could be quite small and a town could be quite big.

      I thought he already did? He said he felt there were too many Parasite users in Skullgirls already. The birds look way cooler anyway imo.

      Ms. is the marital-status-neutral title actually. Miss is what you use for unmarried women.

      so
      based on the description of the first successful synth parasite user
      is she...Ileum? i mean Guts Mama wears a mask and has that skin condition of hers (not to mention she doesn't seem all that young, so being the first wouldn't surprise), so she fits the bill pretty well, but I would think there would be more explication on her identity if it was
      unless alex was just being a cheeky butt, which is wholly possible

      Oh, by the way, 'grad' means city in Russian (and probably in bunch of other languages too), so there's that. I just forgot to tell you. So it makes more sense for Rommelgrad to be a city, not a country.
      So, how do you differ ms. and miss? O_o
      Edit: oh, you're supposed to pronounce ms. with z. Although it doesn't look like announcer 's doing it for Ms. Fortune. And pun's implying that she's 'miss'.
