Riptor is coming to Killer Instinct on Xbox One next week with the 2.2 update, and Iron Galaxy has word that the dinosaur will look a bit different than what fans of the series are used to.


According to a blog post on the Killer Instinct forums, Riptor is no longer a human-raptor hybrid, but a Cybernetic Raptor. All of her moves from her previous intact save for the upperclaw attack which has been replaced with “clever girl”, a nod to Jurassic Park.

Her full repertoire will be revealed on Monday along with her storyline and stage.

Killer Instinct’s 2.2 update will also include some holiday-themed costumes for some of the fighters.

The Ultra Release will arrive on December 17 and the Combo Release is scheduled for December 23.
