Killer Instinct Devs Tease New Character That Either Is Or Has A Katana

What if it is just a floating katana though. Think about it.


The official Killer Instinct Twitter account posted a teaser today, reading "and there exists yet another powerful Coalesced Guardian in the form of a Japanese katana."

And that's it. No further information has been provided at this stage, so it's not clear whether the new character wields a katana, or is in itself a katana. Characters in Killer Instinct are called "guardians," which gives us confidence this is a character tease, but aside from that we've no idea who's up next.
