Killer Instinct gets Cinder

Teases Aria.

This week fighting game Killer Instinct gets a new character: Cinder.

In the video, below, we see Cinder in action, courtesy of a stream by developer Iron Galaxy (skip to the 20 minute mark). Cinder was one of the playable characters in the original Killer Instinct, developed by Rare and released in 1994. In the Killer Instinct reboot, released alongside the Xbox One in 2013, Cinder employs an aerial-dashing-trapping style of play.

The fiery fighter is added to owners of the Ultra Edition of the Xbox One exclusive on Thursday, 30th April. Combo Breaker Edition owners have to wait until 6th May.

Cinder is the eighth character of Killer Instinct season two. In the video below is a teaser for another new Killer Instinct character: Aria, the leader of Ultratech.
