Set to be fully released in early 2022, see Umbrella in action with the latest trailer for Hidden Variable Studios, Future Club, and Autumn Games’ Skullgirls 2nd Encore.
Umbrella is the younger of the two Canopy Kingdom princesses and packs raw magical talent. To craft her moveset, the team took inspiration from Guilty Gear: Accent Core’s Holy Order Sol, Marvel Super Heroes Shuma-Gorath, and Super Smash Brothers Brawl’s Wario.
Below is the official synopsis from the Indiegogo page:
The younger princess of the Canopy Kingdom, Umbrella is drawn into the current conflict by a familiar presence. She has grown up sheltered from the full circumstances surrounding her mother’s death. What effect will the truth have on her?
Umbrella’s living weapon, Hungern, has an insatiable appetite. Choose between using Hungern to end special moves for extra advantages throughout the match, or let his hunger build up for more damage later.
Hungern takes on the shapes of various nightmarish mouths as it tries to consume the enemy, ranging from horse heads to anemones. Expect lots of teeth! Some of its attacks may have a bit of a Takashi Murakami vibe to them.
See her in action with the trailer below:
