It's the year of the clone characters: Skullgirls Encore introduces Fukua, the fully-playable Filia clone

Lab Zero truly does believe in taking an April Fool's joke to the extreme. This year, they have unveiled a "brand new" fighter to the Skullgirls Encore universe: a Filia clone named Fukua.


The trailer released for this new fighter may look eerily familiar, (if you tuned into Final Round 17 last month), and shows off what she is capable of. Although this character has been revealed in jest, the beauty of it all is, she is actually fully playable on PC.

Fukua may reuse some of the animations that Filia has, however, she does have some unique moves and color palettes. Below are some screenshots to get you started.
