Microsoft, Rare and Double Helix has released a Killer Instinct trailer starring Chief Thunder unleashing a bunch of combos, to tie in with the game's recent appearance at PAX in Seattle. Yes, it's a little late, due to us only getting hold of the file for upload today. Bah.

In the vid, you can see Thunder wielding his tomahawks and stringing together some devastating strikes, pummeling Jago - the game's default combatant who comes as standard with the free-to-play Xbox One fighter - into submission.

The video also ends with an all-new female character shrouded in a red hood and sporting some nasty claws. Who is she? She's called Sadira and is apparently the first female villain in the series. Other characters confirmed so far include Jago, Sabrewulf, Glacius, Thunder, Cinder, Fulgore, and Spinal. Killer Instinct will be heading to Xbox One.

*Straight from Wikipedia* The new character in the red hood is...


On August 23, 2013, Double Helix Games revealed a new female character in the Thunder combo trailer.[15] On a later stream, it was announced that her name was Sadira.

Little is yet known about Sadira, and all information about her is gleaned from her trailer appearance. Sadira wears a magenta-colored Arabic hijab with spider symbols that covers her entire head except for her eyes. She makes extensive use of spider webs in her attacks, and appears to have forearm-mounted weapons consisting of metal claws and upright blades. Her gameplay appears to revolve around doing aerial juggle combos, a mechanic that has not been seen in the Killer Instinct franchise before. She is extremely pale, having little to no skin pigment whatsoever, and her eyes are unnaturally blank. Her legs are visible through a gap in her clothing, and she wears high-heel sandals with tattered stockings. It is implied that she will be the first female villain in the series.

Anyone know if the emulated version of the original that you get in the ultra pack has online multiplayer? I haven't read whether they have announced it yet or not

"Cinder, Fulgore, and Spinal"

When was this confirmed??? Haven't seen any trailer or gameplay footage from them. I hope this is true.

@#1 Nice try. The first appearance of NightWolf wasn't until MK3 in 1995 and Killer Instinct came out in 1994 with Chief Thunder. Know the facts.

I thought this free only on the paper? You get like one character and have to pay for others/buy bundles? I have no interest in fighting games, because I suck in them and my glory days in genre are long gone, but at least it looks cool=D
