Super moves are featured in a lot of fighting games. Sometimes, they’re simply just fancy moves with very slight alterations ala the King of Fighters series and Super Street Fighter II Turbo.

The art team at Lab Zero Games has decided to spruce up the Blockbuster moves (supers) in Skullgirls adding a filmstrip of the character to the side whenever she performs a super. It’s a nice middle ground between plain and flashy.

It’s awesome to see that the team is not only dedicated to the DLC from their Indiegogo campaign but are tweaking the game itself to give it a bit more flair. Lab Zero Games, why does your game look so good?
