After Season 3 included Rash from Battletoads and Arbiter from the Halo franchise, it goes without saying that Microsoft is keen to use its Intellectual Property rights to further bring in players to its Xbox One and Windows 10 exclusive fighter, Killer Instinct. So, when Microsoft released a new survey to help developers at Iron Galaxy Studios craft the next season’s roster, it comes as no shock that some familiar faces would end up making the cut.

While Eyedol, who was the final boss in the original Killer Instinct, fits the mold, a few of these don’t quite fit the Killer Instinct universe. As evidenced in the above picture, characters such as Joanna Dark from Perfect Dark, Agent from Crackdown, and Brute from Halo all are on the list, hinting that a few of these characters might make it into the game at some point.

Even further, they also gave the possibility of reimagined characters, such as Shadow Orchid, or a rushdown variant of Glacius known as Kelvin, making the cut.

What do you think of this direction in Killer Instinct? Do any of these characters strike you as interesting enough to play the game? Let us know in the comment section.
