Spinal's shield has magical, moving tentacles on it, players can swap out Jago's sword, Sabrewulf goes steam punk - IGN's Killer Instinct footage Yesterday, IGN brought Killer Instinct fans a metric ton of new information in the form of their live stream. We got to see Orchid in action for the first time, a teaser at the next character to be added in season 1, Spinal, and much more.


As a follow up, IGN put out their Rewind Theater video featuring Orchid's official combo trailer. Breaking down some of her attacks and moves we saw in the trailer, the rewind also pointed out something very interesting about Spinal. Apparently, his shield has these odd tentacle like extremities, that move around on their own.

According to the developers, Spinal's shield was envisioned to be from the mast of his ship, and with the magical looking runes that line it, we may see some very interesting move properties and gameplay from this character.

Additionally, the first Killer Instinct character accessories were shown off during the stream, and the footage of them in action is now live. Jago has an "ancient warrior" theme, and can actually equip different swords, Sabrewulf has a steam punk vibe going on, and Glacius dons a futuristic helmet with shoulder pads.

Hit the jump to check out the footage of the first shown Killer Instinct accessories in action, and let us know what you think about the wave of Killer Instinct info that has developed over the past two days.
