Autumn Games has unveiled a new trailer to showcase Valentine, one of Skullgirls’ newest characters. Valentine is the only survivor of the Last Hope, a group of special Anti-Skullgirl Lab operatives. Before meeting their end at the hands of the Skullgirl, the Last Hope worked for the mysterious Lab Zero and performed duties ranging from reconnaissance and sabotage to advanced research.
Now Valentine dutifully serves the Skullgirl, carrying out her will from the shadows. She keeps to herself, so much of her true nature and personality are unknown.
Slated for release in early 2012, Skullgirls is a new 2D fighting game that puts players in control of fierce female warriors. Its development team at Reverge Labs is led by renowned fighting game champion Mike “Mike Z” Zaimont and artist Alex Ahad, whose work has appeared in many publications, including Lava Punch and Girls of Gaming.
