Spinal teased as Killer Instinct's latest returning fighter

New, 25 comments

The undead skeletal warrior Spinal is the latest fighter confirmed to return in the new Killer Instinct for Xbox One. In a new trailer focusing on Orchid's fighting style, Spinal makes a brief cameo at the end, teasing his inclusion in the fighting game's initial roster.

Spinal appears to retain his trademark cutlass and shield, though he's more heavily adorned in pirate-themed attire than before; he'll wear boots, shredded clothing, a much larger wooden shield and thick ropes. There's also a tease of Spinal's fighting stage, where it appears he was originally revived from the dead. The original Killer Instinct explained that Spinal, a millennia-old warrior, was reanimated by the Ultratech corporation.

Killer Instinct's confirmed roster now consists of returning fighters Thunder, Jago, Saberwulf, Glacius, Orchid and Spinal, as well as the all-new character Sadira. At least one more character is expected to be revealed before the game's launch on Nov. 22.
