When Vikings Attack adds three new fan-designed characters

When Vikings Attack now has a character called Victim of the Sea. Victim of the Sea. Is it my birthday?

As detailed on the PS Blog, Clever Beans held a competition asking fans to design a character for the upcoming PlayStation 3 and Vita title. (Let’s call it a “brawler”; the idea is to smack everyone.)

The three winning designs included a traditional Chinese zombie, a dancing robot, and Victim of the Sea, which caused me to do a spit take composed of 35% tea and 65% delight. Look at that little bugger. I love it.

When Vikings Attack has not been dated but was last expected before the end of the year. It will feature Cross Play, Cross Buy and Cross Save, and support up to four players on a combination of platforms.
