The next character joining Skullgirls 2nd Encore is none other than the series’ main antagonist, Marie. This new playable fighter was revealed during the Evo 2022 Skullgirls competition.
A trailer was shown after the special exhibit which features a silhouette of Peacock helping Marie to take off. At the end of the quick trailer, we see “Marie Coming Soon” strewn across the screen in large letters.
Also known as “Bloody Marie”, this contestant is destructive, but shows deep concern for the innocent. She wears a maid uniform and carries a demonic vacuum cleaner with skulls floating all around her.
While her boss battle sees her unleash attacks using projectile skulls, summoned minions, and a large dark figure that performs melee attacks, we don’t get to see what version Marie’s playable can do from the brief teaser.
The trailer also keeps it low key when we see Marie exit, simply noting that she’s “coming soon.” A release window has been provided by the official Skullgirls Twitter account, however, stating that Marie will be coming to Skullgirls 2nd Encore and Skullgirls Mobile in 2023.
Marie acts as DLC character #4 and final fighter in Season Pass 1 of Skullgirls. She joins Annie of the Stars, Umbrella, and Black Dahlia as the game’s final additional fighters.
You can buy Skullgirls Season Pass 1 on Steam now for the reduced price of US$17.49.
