‘Skullgirls’ Secures Funding For Third DLC Character

The 2D brawler Skullgirls has generated enough money on Indiegogo to fund a third DLC character.

In addition to the new mystery fighter, players will also get a new level and a story mode associated with the character. However, which combatant makes it into the game will be determined by the internet.

If you didn’t donate at least $1 to the Skullgirls Indiegogo campaign, then you cannot take part in the voting process. However, you will be able to download the characters for free after they are finally released.

The folks at Lab Zero Games have unveiled a total of 32 characters the team had designed for possible DLC packs and future sequels. Those who donated to the cause will ultimately determine which one of these characters makes it onto the game’s roster.

With a little over a day left on the clock, Peter Bartholow announced that Lab Zero would donate the Skullgirls engine to the folks at Mane6 for the brawler Fighting is Magic if donations soared to $725,000. Bartholow added that the team would transform Robo-Fortune into a playable character if this stretch goal is met.

Earlier this month, Skullgirls added Big Band to the game. This marks the first male character to make it into the fighter. The brawler’s level and story were later added when donations reached $400,000.

“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,” said shortly after Big Band was funded.

Skullgirls is currently available for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. The PC version of the game will be released later this year. If you’re a fan of the genre, this brawler is definitely worth checking out.
