The official Killer Instinct Twitter account posted a teaser today, reading “and there exists yet another powerful Coalesced Guardian in the form of a Japanese katana.”
And that’s it. No further information has been provided at this stage, so it’s not clear whether the new character wields a katana, or is in itself a katana. Characters in Killer Instinct are called “guardians,” which gives us confidence this is a character tease, but aside from that we’ve no idea who’s up next.
Event Hubs is guessing a samurai character, numerous twitter users have proposed Ninja Gaiden‘s Ryu Hayabusa, one Ultra-Combo forum-goer hoped it would be the yet-unrepresented Eagle but with a katana. Ultimately, though, we’re going to have to wait for developer Iron Galaxies to reveal more information.
