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 teaser trailer was shown after the special exhibition that features a silhouette shot of Peacock helping Marie off the ground. At the end of the quick trailer, we see “Marie Coming Soon” strewn across the screen in big letters.
Also known as “Bloody Marie,” this contender is destructive, yet shows a deep caring for the innocent. She wears a maid uniform and carries a demonic looking vacuum with skulls floating all around her.
While her boss battle sees her dishing out attacks using projectile skulls, summoned minions, and a large shadowy figure that performs melee attacks, we don’t get the chance to see any of what the playable version of Marie can do from the brief teaser.
The trailer also remains tight lipped on when we’ll be seeing Marie released, simply noting that she is “coming soon.” A release window was provided by the official Skullgirls Twitter account, though, stating that Marie is coming to Skullgirls 2nd Encore and Skullgirls mobile in 2023.
Marie acts as DLC character #4 and the final fighter for Skullgirls’ Season Pass 1. She joins Annie of the Stars, Umbrella, and Black Dahlia as the game’s latest additional fighters.
You can purchase Skullgirls Season Pass 1 on Steam right now for the discounted price of $17.49 USD.
