Update: We have added a video of Rash in action to the bottom of the story.

Original Story:

During today's Xbox briefing at Gamescom, Shannon Loftis, head of publishing at Microsoft Studios, announced Killer Instinct: Season 3 is coming to Xbox One and Windows 10 in March 2016.

Although no gameplay footage was shown, Loftis said that Killer Instinct features guest characters from Rare Replay. The first announced character is Rash from Battletoads. Fans won't have to wait to get their hands on him; he's available in the game today. A brief sizzle reel of Rash in actions shows he's lost nothing since his Battletoads days. His moves are overly exaggerated, and his combos end with his feet and fists expanding in size. He even has his wrecking ball move and hoverbike.
