Skullgirls Encore is Blasted by the Tunes of Big Band

Skullgirls Encore has been available on Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and PC for some time now, but there’s still some downloadable content characters that haven’t been released for the game. First up is the very first male character in the game, Big Band, who is coming to the Playstation 3 and PC versions tomorrow, April 22nd.

Big Band will be free for all Skullgirls Encore owners for a limited time, and he packs quite a punch. Actually, he doesn’t fight with his fists, as he doesn’t seem to have any after his transformation into a pneumatic powered musical instrument. His Bagpipe Blues move helps power up all of his musical themed moves, and his theme music is definitely unique as well. He’s coming to the PC version of Encore on the same day, news that was confirmed via the official Skullgirls twitter.

Big Band was originally brought into the game as a stretch goal during Skullgirls’Indiegogo¬†funding campaign, after donors flew past the $375,000 dollar goal. Three more characters are coming later via DLC, including the Egyptian seductress Eliza, and even the April Fools’ tease of Fukua, a doppleganger of Filia, who is also coming to the Playstation 3 version for free.
