Mysterious New Character Hints at Possible New Content for Killer Instinct

on December 10, 2016 10:56 AM

Recently a few tweets appeared showing user Julian Duran coming across a new, unannounced character for Killer Instinct. ‘Kilgore’ apparently popped up the Xbox One menus for the player and not surprisingly, shares a similar look to the killer machine Fulgore. If this leak is accurate, it’s likely not just a reskin of the season 1 robot: Kilgore sports a Gatling gun arm which does not fit in Fulgore’s moveset. This new character could act as a Shadow Jago type character that has a similar design to the original but a completely different arsenal of moves.



The fighting game recently wrapped up it’s third season and nothing has been said about the possibility of a new one. New content has been released since then but it has just been skin packs. Back in July, Iron Galaxy released a survey to their forum members that asked about the future of the series. There were questions about what new characters fans wanted to see and mentions of shadow versions of Orchid and TJ Combo. Guests spots were also explored with Joanna Dark and a Crackdown agent mentioned.

While it might not be a complete new season, Killer Instinct is far from losing support from Iron Galaxy. The game is Microsoft’s premier fighter and the Definitive Edition just landed on Windows 10. While Kilgore’s design (and name) aren’t that inspired, I’m excited to see more (potential) new content for the game and to see how the devs will continue the fight.
