The simple things in life are often times the best, and when you combine some of these elements you get a frantic 2D fighter along the lines of the upcoming Autumn Games release Skullgirls. Bringing together fierce fighting action and what the Barenaked Ladies would refer to as “boom anime babes,” Skullgirls draws upon our guiltiest primal pleasures and then draws us in with a diverse and colorful cast of characters and overwhelming fun factor.

Not content to merely exist in the realm of a simple straight-up downloadable fighter, the story and characters in Skullgirls have been fleshed out in the latest trailer. If you’d like to get your hands on the lovely ladies of Skullgirls, then look for them when the game releases in 2012 on Xbox Live and the Sony Entertainment Network!
