Back in October we first showed some artwork
depicting Painwheel. The former schoolgirl turned horrible monstrosity is easily the most disturbing fighter to be found in Skullgirls
. Developer Reverge Labs released a new trailer today showing off Painwheel in action, alongside her official bio:
Once a normal schoolgirl named Carol, Painwheel was kidnapped by Valentine and delivered to the Anti-Skullgirls Labs' secretive Lab Zero. There she was implanted with the synthetic Buer Drive and Gae Bolga parasites and infused with experimental Skullgirl blood, transforming her into the monster she is today. Violent and unstable as a result of these experiments, as a precaution she's mentally controlled by Lab Zero's powerful psychic director, Brain Drain.
Fueled by rage, she draws her power from her pain and fury. Despite that, the soul of that scared young girl still lives on inside this monstrous body, desperately fighting off the onslaught of voices that would control her.
In addition, we have some older footage of Reverge Labs putting Skullgirls
to the test themselves. The first video here is of Lead Tester "JasonD" taking part in a fight between Parasoul and Cerebella.
The second match features Lead Tester "JasonD" going against Lead Programmer "MikeZ" as M. Fortune and Filia respectively.
is slated for an "early 2012" release onto the XBLA marketplace. No price has been set.
