Skullgirls talks of a legendary artefact known as the Skull Heart, which has the power to bestow all wishes on to any young woman. However, if their heart is unpure this leads to trouble, as even the best intentions are twisted to evil. Those cursed in this way become the very soul of their own nightmares and take the persona of the Skullgirl.
Each of the game’s characters has their own reasons for seeking out the existing Skullgirl and getting their hands on the Skull Heart. In typical arcade fighter style, you can sit through page upon page of dialogue in-between fights of the story mode to discover the burning force of each and every one of our lovely competitors.
