Skullgirls makes that a little easier thanks to a character named Big Band, who…
While one-on-one battles are commonplace in many fighting games, it’s not really something you see go down in Skullgirls all that often.

Indie fighter Skullgirls is bringing the battle to iOS and Android later this year, with a game that blends fighting game action with RPG mechanics to create something . . . well, just look at it.

Good news and bad news, Skullgirls fans: the 2D fighting game's third DLC character, the Egyptian-inspired sorta-blood-mage Eliza, is out now on PC and PS3, free for the next three months.

Everything's okay, or at least, will be okay, according to Skullgirls developers Lab Zero: the game will live on.
Lab Zero, the makers of the fighting game Skullgirls, says Konami, which published the game to Xbox Live and PlayStation Network in 2012, has asked Microsoft and Sony to take the game off the services.

That escalated quickly.
