Double Helix Games Releases New Character Teaser for Killer Instinct

By on August 23, 2013 at 6:21 pm

Interested in who Double Helix Games plans to add to Killer Instinct’s playable roster past the four veterans who have already been revealed? Then look no further than this brand new teaser for an aerial-heavy female fighter who is, as of now, mysteriously without a name. Could it be Kim Wu as Max puts forth in the video title or a brand new addition to the series?

Check out the short video below and let us know what you think.

    Looks like a character straight out of MK. And Kim Wu used Nunchucks, if my memory serves me right.

    • Rahmel Bland

      Yeah, but Chief Thunder wasn’t a grappler and now he is. It’s probably Kim Wu.

      • windsagio

        Maybe She saw fulgore in the distance and it was creepy, obsessive love at first sight?

        • Rahmel Bland

          Haha, that’s pretty funny man.

  • RomanceHD

    I saw a dive kick at the end, I think Justin Wong’s spidey senses are tingling Lol

  • Joshua Dionne Johnson

    New character, why else would the say Welcome?

  • Robert Ng

    wouldn’t a radical redesign of orchid be more likely?

    • O. G. King Haggard

      They don’t want to be lynched, Robert.

      • ReddChief78

        Too late

  • O. G. King Haggard

    This game just became Mortal Kombat… 🙁

    • O. G. King Haggard

      Okay, that’s a bit harsh, but damn, this chick looks out of place.

      • JELIFISH19

        How is that even possible? So far, we have a warrior monk, a werewolf, an alien, and a native american chief. I think just about anything fits in the universe at this point.

        • ReddChief78

          That’s cool as long as it’s something original but ripping idea’s and designs from other games is not
          Jago looks like Killik from Soul Calibur Thunder looks like nightwolf they used Taz to design Saberwulf and Glacius looks like that thing from the movie The Fly now this new character looks like a MK character

          • Amer1ka

            You do know KI existed before a lot of the other properties you just mentioned right? And you’re REALLY reaching when trying to come up with comparisons. Most of those have nothing in common with the character models and animations from the new KI.

          • Justin Archer

            I thought you were serious until I saw Taz. Funny though.

      • Kaihedgie

        Midway did publish the first game, to be fair.

    • Joel Anderson

      More like that Justice League fighter. Getting a Batgirl vibe off this character.

  • Thomaz Barros

    I for one welcome the Aerial Spider Chick

  • Varyus

    So Ibuki left Street Fighter for Killer Instinct?

  • Jordan Hoffman

    They sooo ripped off mortal kombat. Just look at her… uhhh…. stuff!!! It’s straight out of mortal kombat! And they ripped off street fighter too! She’s got a claw just like Vega and she throws kunais just like Ibuki, and she floats on spider webs like… uh… Juri? And I think I even saw her do a tatsumaki senpukyaku in there too! And they even ripped off Killer Instinct! I mean just look at her, it’s like they’re trying to copy Killer Instinct’s style to make her. Not foolin me.

    • Guest

      Dude I don’t like this game, but STFU.You just meshed characters together and said they were copying.

      • Courtney Houston


      • Amer1ka

        You totally missed the joke. That plane flew right over your head while doing a couple 360’s, the co-pilot bailed out and floated down past you and while pulling a giant banner behind it that said, “THIS IS A JOKE”.

      • This COULD just be an even higher form of reverse-trolling ushered in by the new age of front-pagery…

      • Justin Archer

        You don’t like a game you haven’t played? hmmmmm…

    • GuyAlpha


      – Sub Zero, Tekken

  • Jacob Paul Schmidt

    She is taking up one of the 8 slots. Epic Face Palm

  • martin rush

    female scorpion?

  • pootnannies

    it’s like Injustice and and MK had a baby and she got lost in KI 🙁

  • Impulsze N Laydeej

    maybe its orchid…. spider…. webs… i see a connection

  • FlyinJew

    awww wtf?

  • Anthony Walker

    I’m liking this aerial chick and her moves so far, but will we ever get to see her face?

  • Bobby E. Adams

    Not bad. If the game ends up huge ill pick an Xbox One up. Just bought a PC instead for now

  • Travis Lynn

    She looks more like a Marionette Puppet than a spider chick. The shoes are what give me that idea.

  • ArmchairTitan

    Spikes / blades on hands, Fulgore confirmed female.

  • Trevor Clarke

    Elise OP

  • Trevor Clarke

    But the Twist is, it’s a guy

    Like Ash Crimson #Kappa

  • DRIG

    First time seeing a spider-like character excluding spiderman

  • Beb0p

    You know, it probably is a guy character. The arm, chest, face says guy.

  • JoanLein

    that…WELCOME do you want to play a game?……(SAW movies XD)

  • Deusxmachina

    KI Central confirms that this is a brand new character named Sadira.

  • leingod

    I would’ve preferred to see a returning character instead. I’m not against new characters in fighting games, but when there’s so few slots available for launch characters (six) I’d rather have the classics first.

    • Trevor Clarke

      But do you really want the Nintendo strategy of reveal?

  • Sergio Reyes Ledesma

    amazing video
