The giant skeleton hands in her lineup shot have to play a role in her gameplay style, right? Necromancer Shinnok has three special attacks with giant skeleton hands, two are projectiles and one is a command grab. Devil's Flick is good to push the opponent away. Judgment Fist can work similarly to Peacock's Shadow of Impending Doom.

Sadly I couldn't find any gifs, so I can only provide you a video



I also wonder how is she going to move around? Is she going to hover or walk?

She's going to fly around on her vacuum cleaner.

Oh yeah, we need a Shinnok palette for Marie.

Well, she has them in her concept art for a reason...
I want to believe!

But Marie's story mode probably would be very lore-heavy. I hope so, at least.
Yeah. I'm thinking her story would revolve around how she and Patricia became friends and how she became the new Skullgirl afterwards. Should be pretty interesting to say the least.

vacuum cleaner can make wind yes plz..? T_T More expecting some touhou movement tho.
I'm pretty sure the main way her vacuum cleaner is gonna work is like Rachel Alucard's wind from Blazblue. Rachel is in her gameplay inspiration after all and another inspiration she has is "Mega Maid" who can use a giant vacuum to suck in or expel out objects.

Originally, it's stated that Marie could interact with the corpses of her opponents via the vacuum cleaner to gain some sort of a bonus.
I hope this demonic cleaning appliance will have more functions. Too cool not to have.
Mega Maid palette when.

I hope to get more information about the Skullgirl's connection to The Trinity.
And more lore on Double.
Always good to have more lore on Double.

I unironically hope Marie's story is something extremely melodramatic -- to the point where it feels out of place with the rest of the game. Just really hammer in that Marie is a young girl who gave up her entire life for the sake of avenging her best friend and that in-spite of Marie's devotion, her own indomitable willpower will ensure that she remains weak as the Skullgirl and possibly make her quest fruitless.
Not to mention that her best friend was specifically engineered to kill her and that Peacock's own aloofness and irreverence contrasts so heavily with Marie's somber and tragic personality.

Also it feels highly likely that she’ll die even in her own story mode.

I think it would be amazing if you have a fight where it's playable marie vs boss marie. Framing it as marie fighting against the skull heart's influence or something like that.
That would be cool but I doubt it'll happen unfortunately. But, yeah. I can definitely see her dying at the end of her story which would be very sad to see. :(

Forgive me if this is kinda off-topic (I don't feel like this warrants its own thread), but do you think we can expect an update to the game's intro after Season 1's completion?

Logically speaking, we should.

Far as I know, we have only got updates to the intro when the game got named updates (specifically, Encore and Second Encore). I don't think they will make one just for Season 1, but if we get a named update after Season 1 (which I think is a possibility), we could.

I noticed they replied to two of the comments here.

"Attendees are allowed to film and take photos at the booth as long as it's not a "stationary setup" like a tripod, or using flash / lights. We encourage players to share their Dahlia footage!"

So there should be some footage of Dahlia pretty soon then.

"This is from her walking animation. Love that confident swagger! Not all of her animations are cleaned up yet, but this one just screamed 'social post'!"

Which would imply that the majority of her animations are cleaned up, so I'm guessing she'll be around the same as Umbrella was when she was first released into alpha.
