First in-game footage of Skullgirl's Big Band in action - shows off his 3rd Strike-esque parry

First in-game footage of Skullgirl's Big Band in action - shows off his 3rd Strike-esque parry During Anime Expo 2013 this past weekend, the Salty Cupcakes stream held a Skullgirls broadcast. Included in this live feed was the first in-game look at the 2nd DLC character in the works, Big Band.

Mike Z notes that Big Band is clearly one of the largest characters in the game and is actually as tall as Double (sans the saxophone on his back.) Although he isn't equipped with any attacks at this point, we do get to see Big Band's parry as he thwarts Valentine's attempt at hitting him with a super.

The quick Big Band demonstration begins at around 1:35:00 in the stream archive.

Smash Bros. has over 550 sign ups for EVO - game-by-game breakdown of CEO's registrants

Smash Bros. has over 550 sign ups for EVO - game-by-game breakdown of CEO's registrants Mr. Wizard mentioned today that Super Smash Bros. Melee, a game that was added to EVO 2013's lineup by the fans, currently has over 550 players registered to compete.

This is a huge number of players, especially for a game that wasn't even originally going to be in the lineup, but was added because fans raised almost $100,000 for breast cancer research.

To give these numbers a bit of context, we're comparing them with CEO 2013's current lineup, which is going down this weekend in Orlando, Florida. CEO is sure to be one of the biggest tournaments of the year, and their registration just closed, but they'll be accepting emergency registrants at the door. As such, these numbers aren't final, but do offer a solid look at how things should end up.

Juju officially removed from Skullgirls due to confidentiality agreement breach

Juju officially removed from Skullgirls due to confidentiality agreement breach Juju was a Skullgirls character that was created by Lab Zero for the DLC character votes based off of suggestions from a fan named Ceemcneil. To avoid any legal issues, the company tried for some time to acquire the full rights to Juju and make her an option for fans to vote on during the polls.

The legal matters had since been resolved and things were looking up for the sniping assistant of Parasoul. Unfortunately, a confidentially agreement was recently breached by Ceemcneil and as a result, Juju will no longer be a part of Skullgirls.

Below is an official statement from Ravidrath over at Lab Zero games on the matter.

There was a confidentiality agreement in the contract Mr. McNeil signed, so I'm extremely disappointed that after working for a few months to get this resolved, the creation of this thread has ended any possibility of using Juju in the future.

We tried to get this resolved favorably despite continued disruptive and unprofessional conduct on Mr. McNeil's part, often against our own better judgment. His behavior in the Skullgirls community has made Juju an extremely divisive topic within Lab Zero and I soldiered ahead because I felt it was the right thing to do. But with this breach of confidence, none of that matters now.

To say that I am disappointed in this outcome would be an understatement.

This decision is final - sorry to all of Juju's fans, but I can't afford to waste any more of Lab Zero's time and money pursuing this.

For a more in-depth description of how Juju's creation and demise came about, check out this thread on the Skullheart forum.

Skullgirls to be released in Japanese arcades on Taito's Nesica system

Skullgirls to be released in Japanese arcades on Taito's Nesica system It was confirmed yesterday by the official Skullgirls Twitter account that the game will be seeing a release in Japanese arcades some time soon. An arcade release document listed Skullgirls as an upcoming title to be playable on Taito's Nesica system.

Skullgirls is headed to Japanese arcades on Taito's Nesica system!

Lead Skullgirls designer Peter Bartholow further confirmed the Japan release by stating his excitement toward the project and how the team sees this more as a chance to get Skullgirls out there as opposed to an opportunity to make money.

We are stupidly excited for this just because I can’t think of a single other non-Japanese dev that can say they have a game out in Japanese arcades. We see this more as a marketing opportunity for the property and other versions than something we intend to make a lot of money on.

Bartholow also mentioned that the Skullgirls team is not working on this port themselves but rather, a Japanese development team is. The developer for the Japanese Skullgirls arcade release has not yet been disclosed.

It is said that the arcade version of the game will receive all of the upcoming DLC characters. According to Bartholow, we can expect to see Skullgirls in Japan "as soon as possible".
