These New Characters Could Make It Into Skullgirls, Too


In just a day, the fundraiser for Skullgirls has acquired over $90,000 of its $150,000 goal that will help the developer, Lab Zero, add a new character to the fighting game. Since that goal is in sight, Lab Zero have also begun to reveal other characters that they could add to Skullgirls, should the contribution goals for those be met as well. Here’s what they’ve announced so far:


$375,000: Big Band ($400,000 for Big Band stage and Story Mode)



$600,000: One of the below, by fan vote ($625,000 for stage and Story Mode)



Lab Zero actually have even more characters designed for the game. For every $20,000 they raise, they’ll reveal a new one, making them eligible for a vote. These characters were initially intended to be spread across three games, but Lab Zero have begun to reveal some of them early to spur interest.
