* Another Post-Season 3 character was introduced in the form of Shin Hisako. Taking up her father's sword, the guardian presence within clears Hisako's mind of the bloodthirsty haze that had clouded her mind as a vengeful specter. Now, she's got a clear head and is more than ready to take on those who would defile the graves of her village.

** First of all, while it wasn't a secret for long, lots of streamers were scrambling to find Shadow Jago's secret boss. As it turns out, you must [[spoiler: get all three endings for the character of your choice and play that character again in Arcade Mode on Medium difficulty without losing a single match (not a round, just for clarification)]] just to REACH him. Once you sucessfully complete all those conditions, you skip right over Fulgore (maybe Shadow Jago destroyed him already?) and enter an 8th fight as a shadowy silhouette of Jago appears as your opponent with the name of "???".

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rjOAGCtma1k Hisako's trailer]] is no slouch, either. Her beginning narration is incredibly tragic, and sets a slow pace...but, this being Killer Instinct, instantly picks up with Hisako promising to slaughter any who stand in the way of avenging her village, while her theme blares in the background. Another Moment of Awesome happens at the end of the trailer with [[spoiler:Cinder getting teased]].

** Assuming you're not unlucky enough to get hit with an Ultra or a normal move, Shadow Jago will put you out of your misery with a very, VERY unique animation called an "Ultimate Combo". That's right, Killer Instinct's bringing back finishing moves, and what better place to start than with a {{Badass}} difficult boss? Shadow Jago dashes back and forth around his opponent, slicing them with his sword, before uppercutting them up in the air and pursuing them for one last slice before landing gently, as opposed to his opponent who just SMACKS onto the ground.
