Riptor returns to Killer Instinct: Season 2

Another new character’s been revealed for Killer Instinct – and the game’s resorted to its animal instincts. Riptor, a sort of cyber-dinosaur is preparing to re-enter the ranks, hitting the Xbox One exclusive fighter on Wednesday for Ultra Edition owners.

Already a fan-favourite, developer Iron Galaxy has re-fitted Riptor with Ultratech’s cybernetics, meaning she can pounce, bite, breathe fire and attack her enemies with a whip of her tail. Her unique vocal audio comes from Supervising Sound Designer Zachary Quarles, who explains it is “primarily my own voice and a plunger”.

…and yes, as we’ve come to expect from Killer Instinct, the new character’s already being teased: Could that be a hint of Killer Instinct 2 boss Gargos at the end there?

We’ll have to wait and see.

If you have the Ultra Edition of Killer Instinct: Season 2, you’ll get access to Riptor as early as this Wednesday. If you have the Combo Breaker edition, you’ll get yours from December 23.
