A Skullgirls Valentine Redesign Will Remove Her Crosses

A new Skullgirls Valentine redesign is on the way, and this one will remove the cross design completely from the character. Hidden Variable made the announcement, which is the latest evolution of her look. All cross instances on her outfit will be changed to shuriken, as a nod to some of her attacks. Her pupils will still remain in the shapes of crosses. She will be changed later in 2022. Ileum and Last Hope’s crosses will also be removed.

The reason for the new Valentine redesign is attributed to two different factors. One is that the first change in her look was done “hastily.” The other is potentially prepare the series and her for unrevealed “opportunities.” (In some instances, imagery like crosses are removed from games for releases in certain regions.) The changes will appear in game and in art book sections and segments.

To prepare people for how the new Valentine design will look in Skullgirls 2nd Encore and the mobile release, new art was revealed. First, here’s Future Club Lead Animator Mariel Cartwright’s design. It highlights the new shade of pink being used.

Valentine’s first redesign appeared in Skullgirls back in 2014. This is due to her original design being too close to the Red Cross symbol. As a point of reference, here’s the official art showing how she looked with the fuchsia crosses.
