Price - $3.99
Description - Grab the unicorn by the horn, a rainbow ruckus is about to go down! Override: Mech City Brawl adds Stardust to its madcap mech lineup. Launching herself in the air, Stardust can send enemies flying, or effervescently slide into a stunning spinning roundhouse. She’s as eloquently treacherous as she is elusive. Hello…she’s a unicorn! Oh, and speaking of skills, she’s got one insane Ultimate hiding up her hooves. Here’s a hint: her horn transforms into a massive drill that bores through opponents. Ouch.
Confident, creative, sassy and free, Stardust can launch a shooting star that bounces around the map until it smacks into another mech. She’s a diva with a chip on her shoulder, and her unruly approach to combat will leave rivals guessing what her next chaotic move will be!
This is one pretty pony you’re gonna want on your team!

Description - Maestro hits the arena, bringing melodic disorder to everything around him. With the ability to summon musical notes that dance around him and unleash various effects, Override’s 2nd mech DLC will have his confident opponents singing a different tune. Piloted by a toymaker who wishes for nothing more than to break away from the monotony of a mundane, digital world, Maestro’s notes can be summoned in different combinations to spark unexpected mayhem. He can cause enemies to overheat and slow down significantly, giving him the upper hand in combat, or use his Ultimate to perform a symphonic beat down!

A Gladiator-inspired mech, Bellona is no stranger to the coliseum and can perform lunge attacks and shield throws, or summon a spinning ring of blades that deal devastating damage. The gods are on her side when she performs her Ultimate: charged spears of lightning which can be thrown or plunged to stun and stagger enemies.
Price - $3.99
Description - Introducing Mirai – a technologically advanced mech and exceptional close-range fighter. Mirai can hover and fly around the map quickly, but don't expect him to run. The giant, battle-hardened Watchbot from a dystopian future prefers dropping in on enemies and summoning his plasma sword at will in order to execute devastating special attacks and combos. Mirai (meaning ‘future’) has travelled back in time to the present day in hopes of finding the root cause of the battle against xenotypes so that he can stop the disaster before it starts. Prepared to annihilate anyone in his way, Mirai has brought with him a range of abilities which include stunning enemies with electrically charged punches and kicks, using his laser beam to take down opponents from a distance, and performing his Ultimate attack that involves hurling a massive plasma ball at enemies to burn them with the heat of a thousand suns.

- Many of the Mech skins are references to popular culture such as Contessa's Raven skin being based around the DC character of the same name or Metageckons Cthulhu skin.
