Skullgirls Encore’s First Male Character is Big Band, Unleashes on April 22

By   /   Apr 19, 2014

Skullgirls Encore, until now, has had an all-girls cast. However, that doesn’t mean there were no men allowed; the game’s first male character has been announced by the developer along with a trailer and the special features of the character named Big Bang.

The chief executive officer of Lab Zero Games, Peter Bartholow explained the abilities and special features of Big Bang in great detail over a the PlayStation Blog where the reveal trailer was originally posted:

“Big Band’s a high risk / high reward sort of character – he has a versatile and powerful moveset for just about any situation, but many of his attacks will leave you vulnerable if you miss or misjudge your opponent. Big Band’s “Bagpipe Blues” taunt actually powers up two of his supers: Super-Sonic Jazz and Tympany Drive. So if you can end a combo and squeeze in a taunt while your opponent is knocked down, the next time you hit could lead into some really huge damage.

Big Band is also the only member of the Skullgirls Encore cast who can parry incoming attacks. He’ll still take a little damage when parrying, but it will give you the opportunity to retaliate against your opponent with a special move or combo.”

Pretty cool, no?

Moving on, Bartholow also announced that the palette swap for an existing character called Fukua will be out in the coming weeks and that the next DLC will bring you Eliza, a lounge singer from Egypt.
