Skullgirls new character is a Fukua to Street Fighter

Lab Zero has added a new character to Skullgirls. Fukua is a recolored “clone” of Filia that uses much of her animation set. The character is a tongue-in-cheek homage to the palette-swapped characters that many fighting game franchises have used as a development shortcut. In particular, the announcement video seems to skewer the newest character revealed by Capcom for Ultra Street Fighter 4 which was Decapre, a clone of Cammy. Fukua was added to the beta and main versions of Skullgirls yesterday.
