Skullgirls's Latest Lady Fighter, Ms. Fortune, Is All About Decap Attacks

Downloadable 2D fighting game Skullgirls has a new contender, Ms. Fortune. Who is she? And why is she so gross? Mostly because none of her extremities or her cat-head seem too well attached.

Skullgirls co-creator Mike Z offers us a little walkthrough of what makes Ms. Fortune special. Not only can she bowl her noggin at her opponent, her head becomes a separately controlled entity when she does. There's also the rather icky-looking "ball of yarn" attack, which actually appears to involve Ms. Fortune wrapping her opponent in sinew and batting them around.

This is a ten minute education on one character, which might teach you a thing or two about this unusual old-school fighting game. Skullgirls will be out for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in early 2012, after a brief delay.
