Is Chief Thunder heading to Killer Instinct for the Xbox One?


New details have been spraying like an arterial geyser about Microsoft and Developer Double Helix’s Xbox one Reboot of Killer Instinct since Evo took off this weekend. While so far we’ve only seen series mainstays Jago, Saberwulf and Glacius step into the combo-crazed combat that Killer Instinct is known for, a brief moment at the end of a demonstration trailer showcasing those three characters hinted at the next warrior likely to be revealed- Chief Thunder, judging from the signature tomahawk sticking from that bit of wood.

While the Native American warrior ranks pretty close to the bottom of my list favorite combo-centric combatants, right along with that bony brawler Spinal, it’s always good to see the roster of this old-school reboot expand.

I’ve got my fingers crossed to see the series’ iconic femme fatale Orchid or Killer Instinct 2’s claymore-wielding barbarian Tusk. Who would you like to see make their way to Killer Instinct? Let us know in the comments below!

  • We listed Killer Instinct as #82 in our Top 100 SNES games last year, and the game has been a gaming reboot we’d like to see for some time now. We also included Killer Instinct as one of 11 retro remakes we need right now back in July.
