You might remember that all the way back in 2022, the team behind Skullgirls 2nd Encore announced planned changes to the ninja nurse, Valentine. Today, through the test animation above, we finally get to see how those tweaks are coming along.

The devs said the revamp all came down to Valentine’s crosses. Long time Skullgirls fans may recall a similar situation many years ago when Valentine’s red crosses were hastily updated to their current fuchsia design to avoid potential legal issues. Now the team is taking things a step further with a complete rework of the icons.

Going forward, Valentine’s colored cross shaped iconography will be replaced with a new pointed shuriken design, and she’ll get a new pastel pink color. (Her eye color and pupil shape will remain unchanged) Every frame of Valentine animation in Skullgirls 2nd Encore will be updated with the new design, along with any story mode art or other art pieces included in the Digital Art Compendium. Other characters that feature this cross shape like Ileum and the Last Hope will also be updated.

There’s no word on when the new design will be implemented, but it’s nice to see things coming along. We’ll keep an eye out for release date information and bring that to you when it’s available.
