Shadow Jago is set to finally become a playable character in the Xbox exclusive Killer Instinct, it has been announced.
A reskinned version of the character Jago, Shadow Jago has the same moveset and was given to those who bought a Day One 12-month membership card. He was also available in the timed Shadow Jago DLC pack, despite being the final boss of Killer Instinct‘s arcade mode.
In this new version, Shadow Jago will have his own unique moveset and balanced for competitive use after the Killer Instinct fans donated $100,000 in a crowdfunding effort designed to boost prize money at fighting game tournaments. It took less than 72 hours for the money to be raised, with Iron Galaxy promising to make Shadow Jago available by the end of 2015.
Iron Galaxy will contribute $50,000 to the prize pool for Killer Instinct at the upcoming Evo tournament this July.
