Skullgirls 2nd Encore enthusiasts will soon have a great reason to dust of their copies of the game again!
Lab Zero Games have revealed that Annie will be heading to the game as a brand-new playable fighter in 2021! In addition to wielding a sword, Annie will also boast a variety of sparkly abilities – much like many magical-girl TV shows!
Check her out in action below, along with a snippet of her character theme song:
“Annie and her adventures have made for popular figures in nationwide folktales, and a children’s television adaptation of Annie and Sagan’s adventures was inevitable. The show’s success lies in its pair of live action hosts, who are as convincing as their cartoon counterparts. But if the public learned about the real Annie, it might surprise them…
Annie is a seasoned fighter who has been around for a long time, acquiring many skills and powers along the way. Her sword is forged from a meteorite and can channel the power of the stars in its sweeping cleaves. Her right eye bonds her to her Remote Parasite and partner, Sagan, who grants her powers of a galactic motif. While some of her abilities carry more of a sparkly magical girl motif, Annie tries to execute them with the same sternness.”
We’ll report back as we hear more about Annie’s release in the future. Stay tuned!
