Microsoft has announced a new fighter that is joining the cast of combatants in their Killer Instinct reboot.
The undead Kan-Ra, a Babylonian Sorcerer, is being added with Killer Instinct: Season 2‘s roster this coming Monday, November 24th.
Here’s the press blurb for him, straight from Xbox:
Cursed to rot after a failed assassination attempt on his king over 2000 years ago, Kan-Ra endured for centuries by constantly balancing the curses he places on himself with the boons provided by dark magic and artifacts. His solitary goal: to gain knowledge that will grant him absolute power over all of mankind. After getting imprisoned by Maya’s order hundreds of years earlier, an Ultratech attack on Maya’s city accidentally frees Kan-Ra—releasing him back onto an unsuspecting world that’s full of new mysteries and ripe for his… dissection.
Drawing combat powers from the dark sorceries he’s mastered, Kan-Ra explodes into battle with a unique combination of ranged attacks, nasty ground and air-based traps, and incredible situational mobility. Players will be challenged to master his distinct playstyle and diverse arsenal to best effect against his opponents.
Kan-Ra is going to be made available on Monday to existing Killer Instinct: Season 2 Ultra Edition owners, while he’s coming on November 30th to Combo Breaker buyers. New characters are also coming to the game on a regular basis until the new season ends the spring of next year.
