The Super Smash Bros. Melee and Injustice Finals at EVO 2013 were really intense, but I was more stoked for the Injustice and Killer Instinct character reveals. During the stage demonstration, Glacius’ combo trailer finished with a teaser, showing a tomahawk fly across the screen and stick into a tree. Chief Thunder will be returning to Killer Instinct!
For those unfamiliar with the series, Chief Thunder made his appearance in the first KI, but did not appear in KI2 (So its been about 20 years). There are mixed reactions from the KI community, they arent disappointed in the Thunder, but the reveal itself, expecting more than just a teaser. Two characters in particular Fulgore and Orchid, the most iconic characters of the franchise were highly anticipated for the reveal. But at this point, people are happy with ANY fighter to be announced.
Besides the three playable characters Jago, Saberwulf and Glacius, Fulgore, Cinder, Spinal and now Thunder have been announced to return. Double Helix are doing an amazing job in listening to the KI community, and its evident through the current build of Killer Instinct at EVO 2013, changing and adding features, as well as bringing back past characters.
Hopefully we see more stuff at San Diego Comic Con, or PAX Australia maybe? What character are you looking forward to seeing next?
