Anime-style fighting fans may have more than Arcana Heart 3 to look forward to this year. Skull Girls, a new “fast-paced” 2D fighter in development at Reverge Labs, puts players in control of “fierce female warriors” in a Dark Deco world.
The game boasts itself as a “one-of-a-kind, action-packed competition” packed with “intriguing backstory” and “awesome combos.”
The game’s story is set in Canopy Kingdom, where players will take on female opponents in attempts to control the Skull Heart, a mysterious artifact with the power to grant wishes. In order for a wish to be granted, however, one must have a pure soul; if not, the wish-maker shall be “corrrupted into a living nightmare that haunts humanity”. In short, she’ll become a Skullgirl.
Alex Ahad, whose DeviantArt page can be found through here, is doing artwork for the game.
Stay tuned for more details next weekend. We’re scheduled to see the game for ourselves at PAX East.
