Shadow Linkers (think EX moves) in the new Killer Instinct add between 10-12% damage to combos, in the current build of the game. While this could change as development continues, a combo doing 57% damage, and using two meters, is shown off in the video below by Maximilian, with the help of Double Helix Games' Dave Verfaille.

Notable details from the short, but very informative 5 minute video include that it's possible to combo after landing a throw, every fighter will have between 3-4 special moves and they'll all be Shadow Linkable, and that one of the best ways to gain meter is to have your opponent block attacks. They show a specific example of a fireball being blocked full screen netting about 20% meter for the projectile thrower.

Make sure you watch the video below for all of the details.
