The Skullgirls has secured enough funding for a second DLC character.
The developers behind the acclaimed 2D fighter have enjoyed quite a bit of success with their Indiegogo account. Lab Zero Games has reportedly received enough donations to ensure that Big Band will soon be added to the game.
The team behind Skullgirls has currently amassed $380,000 on Indiegogo. The new character will get his own stage and music once donations reach $400,000. Big Band is also the first controllable male character to be added to the roster.
The developers are no doubt overwhelmed by the response from the Skullgirls community. Since the game has struck a chord with fans, many people haven’t had a problem helping the team bring the proposed DLC to life.
“Once again, Lab Zero would like to thank you and everyone else that have contributed to this campaign! We are unbelievably grateful to have such devoted and supportive fans, and can’t wait to get this new content into your hands,” the designers said in a statement.
Although Big Bang is now officially being added to the game, Lab Zero isn’t resting on its laurels. Should the company reach $600,000 in donations, a “mystery character” will be added to the roster.
“Once Big Band’s story mode and stage are funded, we’ll begin releasing information to help you make your decision for the forthcoming Mysterious Character vote, so keep those contributions coming in,” Lab Zero said.
Skullgirls isn’t your everyday brawler. While it’s colorful characters and delightful presentation may suggest it’s for casual gamers, the fighter is actually a bit tougher than one might expect. Even those who spend quite a bit of time playing these games will find the title to be a challenge.
The game is currently available for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. A PC port is expected later this year. Learn more about the project by visiting the official Indiegogo page.
