The video, humorously narrated by Cinder himself, shows off some of his deadly moves. One move allows Cinder to launch fireballs that attach to his foes, which can be detonated at will. “I like this new me: stronger, faster, burn-ier,” he quips in the video.
Cinder will be available in Killer Instinct on April 30 for as part of the Season 2 Ultra Edition, while the character will launch through the Season 2 Combo Breaker expansion on May 6.
Make sure to watch through the end of the video, as it culminates with a brief teaser for the game’s next playable fighter, Aria. A creepy voicover says, “Oh no. Not. Just. Yet.” Outside of her connection with the fictional Ultratech group, no further information about Aria is available.
Killer Instinct, a free-to-play game, was released in November 2013 as an Xbox One launch title. The game’s original developer, Double Helix, was later acquired by Amazon. Now, Iron Galaxy is working on continued support for the game alongside Microsoft.
