Another DLC character incoming
Publisher Autumn Games and developer Hidden Variable have released a gameplay trailer for Skullgirls 2nd Encore that features the Season 1 Pass downloadable content character Black Dahlia. The Season 1 Pass, which includes Black Dahlia, Annie of the Stars, Umbrella, and a fourth character, is in active development for Switch right now.
We don’t have a release date for the Season 1 Pass on Switch just yet, but we do have full details on Black Dahlia. You can learn all about this character in the official description below.
Black Dahlia’s key Special Move is using her massive gun-arm to launch slow-moving explosive rounds that detonate on contact. These explosive rounds don’t have the fullscreen reach like other zoning tools, so she’s more effective at mid-range where she can approach alongside them using her forward dash and unique “Onslaught” jump.
Onslaught is Dahlia’s unique movement ability that leaps towards the opponent allowing her to attack from the perfect angle. It can be used from the ground and the air, and the distance covered by the ground version adjusts based on how far she is from the opponent.
In future Alpha updates, Black Dahlia’s reload will be enhanced with unique rounds beyond her classic explosive shot. For example, one unique round creates a flaming hazard on the stage to enhance her zoning, while another turns her next shot into a powerful short-range buckshot. Her gun holds six rounds, after which she’ll need to reload.
Her remaining Special Moves will be focused on escaping and tricky movement, and you’ll just have to wait and find out what’s in store for her Blockbusters!
