Seeing how Ultratech plays a big role in Killer Instinct’s story, what if they dedicated a whole costume inspired by their shady work? By capturing one of the established characters, and fully modifying them to where they look and sound like a new character, but they’re just a skin setting for a normal fighter. Think of it like how Netherealm does with MKX’s Hanzo Hasashi or Injustice’s John Stewart.
The character that I think would be a good start, it’s Jago.
I mean since Season 3 is technically over with, but more updates are due to come supposedly, giving a special costume to players could be a neat way to hold us off until the next project arrives, and could be a decent place holder for no 9th character. In fact, since Shadow Jago doesn’t have a Retro skin, why not go for this instead? Replacing all the Shadow auroua engulfing him, instead its a cyberspace like grid, and his voice being more artificial whenever he talks.
If not for this KI, maybe for the possible sequel? What do you think of the concept
That kind of evil is exactly what I’m talking about , but taken to a much more extreme measure. We already know Eagle is Fulgore, but since his design in the reboot is really up to our imagination, seeing how we never saw him before his death, having a character we’re already familiar with go through a similar format, but still maintaining the sculp of the original character, that could probably be an interesting ark, cannon to the story or not.
They could give em’ “what if” costumes. “What if jago and company sided with ultratech?” I dunno. From a lore standpoint I’d rather not see it come to fruition into the canon. Just a “what-if”. The last thing I need is to start having things like Shago (who reasons I don’t know why they actually let him be his own thing in the lore is beyond me.)
Would be good for a KI sequel since the chances of shago being on a next game are low due to death of Gargos.
ARIA should clone Jago and turn it into a cyborg. It should retain shago’s moveset without any explanation.
