Skullgirls Encore smells what Beowulf is cooking today on PS3

Skullgirls Encore is getting one of its most unique combatants yet today, with the addition of pro wrestler extraordinaire, Beowulf.


Skullgirls Encore has had a rich roster of femme fatales do battle for several years. But now, Lab Zero's fighter is about to get a major shakeup in the form of a rare (but not the first) male character. It's the charismatic titan, Beowulf, who brings the glamorous world of professional wrestling to the Skullgirls arena.

In true pro wrestling tradition, Beowulf brings along with him a trusty steel chair, which he calls "The Hurting." Beowulf unleashes a full arsenal of wrestling moves that wrestling fans of all stripes can appreciate! Running bulldog! Big splash! Canadian Destroyer! Brother! He even offers up some classic taunts, like Hulk Hogan's ear cup. And yes, Beowulf can string all of these moves into hard-hitting combos.

Beowulf makes his debut today on PlayStation 3 today and will be available for free for a limited time. Meanwhile, PS4 and Vita owners are still in line to get their own remastered version of Skullgirls, which will now be titled Skullgirls: 2nd Encore. Lab Zero has confirmed that this new version will offer cross-buy and cross-play, so PS4, PS3, and Vita players can all engage in online multiplayer. Unfortunately, the game will not be compatible with the original Skullgirls Encore, so current PS3 owners will have to offer a little more to make the upgrade.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
