Girl Fight is the all-female fighting game coming down the pike for XBLA and the PSN. It’s newest combatant is Ghost, who’s not so much spirit as she is nimble and handy with dual ’45s.
Ghost serves as the speediest member of the Girl Fight cast and wears an outfit that’s equal parts gravity defying and S&M inspired. Slightly reminiscent of Leeloo from the Fifth Element too(remember that one?), isn’t it?
Ghost was a government agent who specialized in wetwork and black ops. For over a decade, she was sent around the world on missions that only a handful of people were authorized to know about. Sometimes she was called upon to be a thief, other times she was a spy, and when the mission required it, she would be an assassin.
As the years passed, her grim occupation began to take its toll on her mind. She was haunted by her crimes, consumed with remorse for the lives she had taken. After ten long years of staining her hands with blood and carrying secrets that could topple nations, she fled from her life of murder and tried to start fresh with a new identity.
Months passed without incident. She began to feel safe. She thought that she had successfully escaped her employers. She was wrong.
Aside from the fact that Girl Fight looks like a gimmicky way to get a bunch of half naked females together to pull hair and tear clothing, it actually seems like developer Kung Fu Factory is putting a lot of work into it. Each fighter has her own repertoire of moves and individual hooks, as well as their own arenas that actually look really neat.

We’ll see what the finished product looks like when the ‘M’ rated battler launches for the PSN and XBLA later this Summer. If you’re headed to PAX East though, you can catch an early glimpse of a playable build at booth 808- that’s Reverb Games’ PAX home.
