Big Band, Skullgirls Encore’s next free DLC character—and first male character—is coming to PlayStation 3 next Tuesday (April 22nd). Lab Zero Games CEO Peter Bartholow said to Siliconera that the Xbox 360 version of the character is still being tested and that the studio is waiting to hear back from Microsoft on that front.


“We expect to find out the results of that early next week,” Bartholow said via e-mail.


Meanwhile, you can view a trailer for Big Band above and find more details on the character at the PlayStation Blog. Additionally, Lab Zero have provided a sneak peek at the next free DLC character, Eliza, in their PS Blog post as well.

    • Sperium3000

      Eliza is just such a vampire-y name, kinda like Vlad, or Bartory, or Chocula.

      • otakumike

        Always had a sneaking suspicion that Putin is a vampire.

        • Sperium3000

          Don’t be silly! -Everyone- knows that Putin is an alien spy transformist karateka hamster.

        • DragKudo

          Nah he’s a cyborg from the future.

  • Sperium3000

    Big Band’ll her make her dance, Big Band’ll her make her dance, these Skullgirls clapping, and they ain’t using hands!

    Didn’t even know this guy was free, it’s going to be hard deciding if I want to main this or JoJo ASB.

    • Ninjagoon

      i feel really bad that i understand this reference lol

  • z_merquise

    I’m looking forward to this. Haven’t played Skullgirls for some time now so better brush up again.

    Also, gotta love the Fist of the North Star reference here:

    • SlickRoach

      YOU WA SKULL’D!!!

  • Vash bane

    I now this is old and all but. is it really still called skullgirls yet there’s a male being added? XD

    • Cellsai

      The Skullgirls are the villains of the game. It tells you this in the first 5 seconds when you turn on the game.

      However, I still feel you are correct and we should complain to all the other companies about the blatant lies in the titles of Smash Bros. for all its female cast, King of Fighters for its female cast, Tekken for allowing people to use kicks and not just Iron Fists and Street Fighter for having the cast fight indoors.

  • CptPokerface

    Big Band honestly surprised me, he’s a great character. I’m personally more excited for Eliza, she’s got so much style. As usual, I can’t wait.

  • TruSpindash

    He looks really good, can’t wait to try him out.

  • Can’t wait for “Menace” To be playable soon. ;)


  • TerrenceEncore Jones

    Now this character is cool!
