Following the addition of Annie of the Stars to the Skullgirls roster back in October of 2020, the first new character to be added to the series in 5 years, developer Hidden Variable announced that they weren’t quite done with adding in new characters just yet. In May of last year they announced that Umbrella was on deck to be the next one added to the roster. Umbrella is the younger sister of existing Skullgirls character Parasoul, and like her big sis she also has a freaky sentient umbrella companion named Hungern who helps her fight her battles. Umbrella has been available in Skullgirls on other platforms for a while, but this week she has finally arrived in Skullgirls Mobile with the release of a major version 5.0 update. Check out one of the many different variants of Umbrella in Skullgirls Mobile below.
As always, Hidden Variable has done a tremendous job of detailing all the nitty gritty of this latest update over on the official Skullgirls Mobile forums, so be sure to check that out to see everything in store for you with this latest version of the game. All players will have some special goodies waiting for them in their in-game inbox including a chance to score one of the Umbrella variants. And of course there’s still more new characters waiting in the wings, as late last year during Umbrella’s big gameplay reveal trailer Hidden Variable dropped a teaser for Black Dahlia who is another character that has long been requested by fans to be added as a playable character in the game. I’m sure we’ll hear plenty more about that in due time, but for now check out version 5.0 of Skullgirls Mobile with the freshly added Umbrella and Hungern in tow.
