Skullgirls' first male character arrives next week
Big Band, Skullgirls Encore's first male character, will make his debut on PS3 next Tuesday, April 22. He will be completely free to download for all players.
"Once a regular beat cop known as Ben Birdland, he fell flat when he got on the wrong side of New Meridian’s corrupt police force. Birdland was broken and bent out of shape by his former colleagues, but was tuned up by Dr. Avian and ASG Lab 8. Now he is armed with a full ensemble of pneumatic weaponry, transforming him into the full fortissimo instrument of justice: 'Big Band,'" Lab Zero Games CEO Peter Bartholow explained.
Described as a "high risk/high reward" character, Big Band has a versatile and powerful moveset. The downside is that his attacks leave you vulnerable if you miss or misjudge your opponent. Big Band's taunt actually powers up two of his supers, and he is the only character in the game who can parry incoming attacks. He's also the only character in the game with a penis. I wonder if there is any correlation between the two.
Check out his gameplay video below.
