Classic Character Tusk Returns For Killer Instinct Season 3


Killer Instinct 2

The upcoming third season for Killer Instinct has another confirmed character. Tusk (along with Kim-Wu) returns from the original games in 2016 to bring the pain all over again for a new generation of beat ’em up enthusiasts.

The news broke over the weekend at the conclusion of a Twitch livestream of the Killer Instinct tournament by Microsoft Studios creative director Adam Isgreen.

In addition to Kim-Wu and Tusk, season 3 also welcomes guest character Rash from Rare’s Battletoads series. However, if you were hoping to see fan favourites Gargos or Eyedol, you be left waiting for a long time. Isgreen says that both characters would be difficult to implement due to their awkward animations and character models.

Along with the character reveal, the livestream also revealed a bunch of new info for upcoming changes planned for the fighter.

  • An updated Dojo Tutorial

  • Tusk and Kim Wu have been confirmed to appear at launch and both will have retro costumes

  • More characters will be available at launch than there were in the launch of Season 2. The remaining few will be available in the coming months.

  • Everyone on the roster will have tweaks to help balance the game to compensate for the new features and mechanics being introduced in Season 3.

  • Two characters that are currently on the roster will be re-worked. That means their set ups and how they gain meter will be different. It is confirmed that these two characters are not Glacius, Aganos, or Shadow Jago.

  • Although Ultimates for every character isn’t confirmed, it is possible for all the characters to receive Ultimates due to the tech they developed when they created ARIA.

  • They will reveal more information at Pax South in San Antonio, TX sometime between January 29-31

  • There will be more community bundles in Season 3 due to the success of the Shadow Jago Fund Raiser. The purpose of the Fund Raisers will be determined by the community on what they want to see in Season 3 that didn’t make the cut by launch. So if you want to see a certain guest character, stage, mode, feature, ect. that didn’t make the cut, make yourself heard. They are actively seeking out the community’s input.

Killer Instinct Season 3 is currently scheduled to begin around March, 2016. As well as kicking off an entirely new series of character releases, the same month also sees the release of the game on PC – exclusively for Windows 10
