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".

Ravidrath from Lab Zero: People should not try to raise money for Annie, we've already got work for more than a year

Ravidrath from Lab Zero: People should not try to raise money for Annie, we've already got work for more than a year With all 5 of the DLC characters now chosen to be included in Skullgirls, many fans still have favorites they'd like to see added to the roster. Ravidrath from Lab Zero Games keeps active over on the NeoGAF forums and recently dropped a bit of information on one of the characters included in the DLC polls, Annie.

It seems there is still a high demand for Annie and Ravidrath stated that he recommends fans do not try and raise money for her. He goes on to say that the team is already booked with work to occupy the next year adding more wouldn't be a great idea.

Below is a bit from Ravidrath.

I dunno, I think I should go on record and say that people should NOT try to raise money for Annie.

We've already got work for more than a year, and a lot could change in that time. I think there's a good chance that Autumn's lawsuits will be resolved one way or another, and I think Annie would be a priority after Umbrella, Black Dahlia and Marie.
