Riptor Returns to Killer Instinct Today, Revel in Her Video

While the polling on a possible PC version of the game continues, new trailers for the Season 2 character roster of Killer Instinct continue to be released.

In the latest video we get a look at the new and enhanced Riptor, a genetically engineered raptor-human hybrid, which has also been modified with leftover Fulgore technology in the reboot. These clever darlings were created by Ultratech’s military division in recognition of Fulgore and Cinder’s weaknesses.

Riptor appeared in the original, 1994 Killer Instinct, but not in its sequel. This is probably the most memorable character from the original games—thanks to its close association with Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park, which came out just a year prior to the first KI—so fans from the 90s are likely to get a kick out of her inclusion in the reboot.

Riptor is available with the Season 2 Ultra Edition of Killer Instinct as of today, and from December 23rd with the Season 2 Combo Breaker.
