The newest edition of Friday Night Friday Skullgirls on GameTrailers has some cool stuff on display, featuring Sanchez playing solo Parasoul vs Render playing solo Valentine! It’s a very close match, with each round going down to the wire. Sanchez’s Parasoul is really good, but the real highlight is in Valentine, as there’s a bunch of new stuff that wasn’t shown in last week’s FNF.
First off, her cinematic Level 3 super gets used here, and it is glorious. Izuna Drops are always hype. You also get to see her syringe projectile get used to great effect. From what I can tell, the syringes can’t be thrown until they’re filled up with something. So she has a special that allows her to fill up a syringe with poisons of varying status effects, including life drain and hitstun elongation. It kind of reminds me of Jam’s Asanagi no Kokyuu, since it’s so slow. Seems like one of the guaranteed ways that allows her to fill a syringe is off a throw. Speaking of throws, I’m getting this Chipp Zanuff vibe from her throat-slitting air throw.
