Eliza Chosen for Skullgirls DLC in First Character Vote

By on April 29, 2013 at 10:00 am

The vote for the first fan chosen mystery DLC character in Skullgirls has ended, and the winner is Eliza.

Eliza is a lounge singer with a darker side. By day, she organizes several blood drives for charity. By night, she feeds that blood to her parasite, which keeps her young and immortal. Beneath her beautiful skin she is little more than a living skeleton, wrapping herself in the trappings of youth.

Eliza is one of the many characters that Mike Z provided a mechanics preview for on the Lab Zero stream. When hit, blood (or, due to ratings problems, sand, ooze, or red jelly) flies out of her and sticks to a location on the floor. She can then use this blood to attack the enemy or recover her health.

The next Skullgirls DLC vote is starting today. It is unclear as to whether or not Lab Zero will be keeping the same voting format, or trying a new one. When they asked the fans, most said that they were satisfied with the vote so far, but at the same time also said they would like to change and speed up the voting format.
