Spider woman uses web attacks, multiple blades.

Microsoft and Double Helix Games have revealed a new female fighter for Xbox One’s upcoming Killer Instinct reboot.

A name for the character wasn’t provided, but she appears to be entirely new, and not returning from previous games. She enters the stage attached to spider webs, uses web-based attacks, and is equipped with multiple blades.

Watch the 14-second teaser trailer below.

Thanks, NeoGAF.

    From that picture I never would’ve guessed it’s a woman lol What is it with western studios and their inability to model the female form?

    • Sevyne

      For once I have to agree with you. Kind of like how Mortal Kombat’s females are super-manly looking.

      • Budgiecat

        And now unfortunately DC female characters get to share that curse

        • shogunknight

          +1 For you all. And i thought it was only me that had the same thought, they might need to work on their female models

          • Willgaea

            Poison is half male and looks more female than most characters in Western games. Although I do have to add that a lot of Eastern games do have very feminine males in their games.

            • Sevyne

              Good point! Maybe Western devs are trying to bring balance. One side brings Girldudes? Okay we’ll bring in the Dudegirls!

              • Budgiecat

                yeah but the East has

                Travis Touchdown
                Chris Redfield
                Leon Kennedy
                Heihachi Mishima
                Jun Jazama
                Akira (VF)
                Eddy Gordo
                Agent Francis York Morgan
                Garcia Hotspur
                Ryo Hazuki
                Lu Bu
                Sol Badguy
                and many more…

                So I’d say they’re more balanced..

                • Sevyne

                  Oh I agree. I was really just making a bad joke, lol.

                • Willgaea

                  For every manly dood there is a equally feminine dood in the same universe. Likewise for women. Man I hate Griffith.

    • epy

      Probably why so many westeners have a problem with female characters in japanese games. THEY’RE NOT MANLY ENOUGH!

  • Gojira Twit

    I don’t know what to say. It’s a moderately interesting character, but not very appealing to me.

  • shogunknight

    What the? What about orchid?? Well, seems like spider woman meets wolverine looking like mileena.

  • Ritsujun


  • Pyrofrost

    How should I feel about you?

  • Eder García

    Fun Fact: the original KI main character was supposed to be a girl in red.

  • captainhowdy

    This character design looks very awesome. I haven’t been this excited for a 2D fighting game for awhile.

  • MasterSensei

    Name guess: Black Widow? I can’t think of any more spider related names…

  • talesfanatic

    thats definitely a woMan.

  • Lelouch Vi Britannia

    Budgiecat forgot Jin Saotome, and Domon Kasshu. Both are male looking oh lets not forget Heero Yuy, Amuro Ray, Judau Ashta, Spike Speagel, Nekki Basara, Hikaru Ichijyou, Lockon Stratos, Suzaku Kururugi, Kain Blueriver, Gaav and more.

    Ok i admit i might have gotten a few wrong in the process but regardless there are some Anime characters right off the bat i can tell they are male looking.

  • Lelouch Vi Britannia

    I almost forgot one the most Manliest Anime characters ever KAMINA!!

    “Who the hell do you think i am”
