Skullgirls: Reverge Labs unveils Valentine

Is a ninja and a nurse. Attacks with corpses.

Reverge Labs has unveiled Valentine, the latest addition to the roster of 2D fighting game Skullgirls.

Valentine is a ninja and a nurse - as you do - and is nimble. She attacks with medical implements, including a bone saw, defibrillators and... wait for it... corpses. She can also inject her opponents with poison. If they don't faint from the thought, first.

She is the only survivor of the Last Hope, a group of Anti-Skullgirl Lab operatives. Now Valentine serves the Skullgirl. Bwahaha.

PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade fighter Skullgirls is due out in early 2012. It stars an all-girl cast, with art designed by Scott Pilgrim contributing artist Alex Ahad. The soundtrack is the work of Yamane Michiru, who scored Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.
