If you played the original Killer Instinct back in 1994, you’ll likely recall the bicephalous satyr-like end-boss demon Eyedol through gritted teeth. Its height, power, and pain-in-the-backside spiked mace proved quite the challenge, which might be why Iron Galaxy Studios and Microsoft have chosen the powerhouse as the eighth and final DLC character to enter Season 3 of the 2013 (2016 on PC) reboot.
Announced at this weekend’s Evolution Fighting Championships, Eyedol’s return was revealed just prior to yesterday’s Killer Instinct finals. He/she/it will debut on July 22 for Ultra and Supreme Edition owners, and July 29 for those with Combo Breaker bundles. Here’s a quick glance at what to expect:
