Native American redesigned for reboot.

Chief Thunder will join Jago, Sabrewulf, and the rest of the roster in Xbox One’s upcoming Killer Instinct reboot.

According to Double Helix studio head Patrick Gilmore, “Chief Thunder was in the roster from the moment we started planning this game.”

Chief Thunder is a “grappling” character equipped with two axes, and has been re-envisioned and modernized from his original design.

See him in action in the video below.

    Old Chief Thunder was better IMO, but this one doesn’t look bad either.

    So far I hate all the redesigns… Very nervous to see what they did to Fulgore

    • ECM

      Kinda stunned (though I shouldn’t be) that they’re apparently modeling them all after MK designs.

  • samsoja

    so nice, omg hope they have a good sabrewulf dlc.. cuz dis one looks like the wolf from red riding hood :D

  • LastBoss

    I couldn’t stand the original K.I but this one is doing justice for the series, and the most appropriate time to come out with the pseudo SFIV/MK style.

  • shogunknight

    That 60 fps, looks slick

  • Neutron15

    he looks amazing, and nice crows XD

  • Willgaea

    How is he going to hurt people with his mohawk upper, without a mohawk!

    I really liked the first Killer Instinct when I was a child, so maybe I’m biased in my judgement but this might be a good game. (As always, to me the most important aspect will be if it has a great story mode or not).

    Watching some videos there are things I don’t quite undersand. Watching a Jago vs Glacius fight I saw that after making a Combo Breaker the combo was not broken and glacius kept hitting. Does anyone know how this works? Thanks

      To address your question, they now have Counter Breakers, so that is why Glacius was able to continue with his combo.

      • SolarisSpell

        Co-co-co-combo breaker!!

        Co-co-co-counter breaker!! ^_^ Hehe

    The nostalgia for this game continues, I hope they can just bring back everyone from the last KI game.
