Featuring signature teleporting moves, both sword and shield attacks, Spinal is an ancient warrior resurrected for the Killer Instinct tournament. His stage is the Shipwreck Cove, the final resting place for a countless number of ships that fell victim to Spinal (as a mortal) and his campaign to redeem some mysterious artifact of power.

Spinal is a returning character from the original Killer Instinct game, and he’s set to be released in game sometime later this month.

    OOOHHH MY GOOOOOODDDDDDD! This game is full of surprises. Gameplay is certainly next level, it gives that feeling of being at the arcade when you where just knee high to a grasshopper.

    Oh yeah, the old Ultra 64 cabinets were a big draw in my local arcade back then. I never liked KI or MK though. I was a purist who stuck by Virtua Fighter 2 and SSFT while everyone else abandoned them.

    KI and MK felt too button-mashy to me. Though I actually played a mean Spinal and was fairly good with him. Only character I could beat the game with since his combos were mostly forward and back taps.
