You may have seen the announcement about the Killer Instinct community fund project a few days back. Just three days after it went live, the $100,000 goal was met.


As a result, the community will receive huge pot and prize bonuses at future tournaments, and will be seeing Shadow Jago as his own character by the end of 2015.

Here's a statement directly from Iron Galaxy Community Manager, Alex Jebailey:

"We are SUPER EXCITED to announce that the Killer Instinct Crowdfunding initiative has SUCCEEDED! We hit the goal of $100,000 within the first 72 hours of the offer going live! There is now $100K in the community fund for tournaments and we are pleased to announce the first tournament we are supporting - EVO this July! We are contributing $50,000 to the prize pool for Killer Instinct. And Shadow Jago will finally become a real character in Killer Instinct with his unique boss moveset, balanced for competitive play!"

Congratulations to the KI community in proving your support for your game so quickly and strongly. You can see the official announcement over at the Ultra Combo Forums.

Thanks to likewoah and a few anonymous tippers for the submissions.
