Killer Instinct for Xbox One's first female fighter revealed

The next fighter to be revealed for Killer Instinct for Xbox One appears to be a completely new character with spider-like powers, but details on her name or whether she’s a radical redesign of a previous character haven’t been revealed.

The new character, teased at the end of a video posted (then pulled) by GameTrailers and spotted by EventHubs, apparently has the ability to throw spider webs to attack and ensnare opponents. She’s also outfitted with a pair of blades on the back of each hand and a another set of blades running down her forearms. The character is not immediately recognizable as an interpretation of past Killer Instinct fighters.

In a recent livestream for the game, Microsoft creative director Adam Isgreen said, "You will not see the next character coming in terms of who they may be." He later teased that the next character to be revealed will "fit really well into the KI lore and it’s a character that I think everyone will get a real kick out of."

Her play style, Killer Instinct producer Torin Rettig said, will be "really different" and "may provide something that’s been missing" in the currently revealed roster. Officially, the Xbox One launch game’s roster so far includes Jago, Sabrewulf, Glacius and Chief Thunder.

Killer Instinct is being released for free, but players will have to pay to unlock most of the game’s characters.
