New Trailer Released for SkullGirls’ Painwheel

on January 19, 2012 8:00 PM

Hype for Reverge’s 2D fighter SkullGirls just keeps building with every new character reveal. Enter Painwheel, a parasite ridden, unsightly monster who was once an ordinary fifteen year old girl before she was kidnapped by Valentine, mutilated and controlled by Brain Drain. Although Painwheel’s existence has been anything but a secret for the last few months, she’s yet to have her own formal reveal trailer. Until now that is.

Painwheel’s gigantic windmill shaped blade provides her with formidable mobility, despite the fact that she is apparently optimal in close-ranged combat. Pair that with enormous damage and plenty of tools and Painwheel looks like she’ll cause plenty of problems for the…less hideous part of the game’s roster. Hit the break to check out the trailer. SkullGirls has no release date but does have a Q1 release window, meaning will be playing within the next few months.
