Her daggers are the key point to user her. They are the source of her skills. She can lose them. They can also level up

She can recapture her daggers. Sort of like a boomerang




Maya's stage: City of Dawn

Her stage is set in South America

This is the tenth character. There's six more reveals left for Season 2.

This actually cements everyone returning because Maya was the worst designed, worst playing, worst everything.

Least expected returning character by a mile

They said they'd keep making seasons as long as people want them or they run out of ideas, whatever happens first

Season 4 would likely be the beginning of guest characters, too

Eh, with 6 more reveals left for the season I'd be surprised if we don't see everyone return. Cinder, Tusk, Kim Wu, Riptor + two new guys.

Probably the first character in Killer Instinct (3) who doesn't look worse than the original. We'll see how she looks in game.

They have said theyre saving some old characters for season 3.

Combo, Maya, Cinder is still likely, but I wouldn't be surprised to see them split the other 3 off for later.

Yeah, I get that original KI has a lot of fans, but the art style was so bad. Keeping faithful to it hurts KI at times.

Ah, I hadn't heard they were going to hold some back; just that there were def not bringing the old bosses back for now. It does make more sense to have a balance of new+old.

Well, old Maya looked like Janet Jackson so its somewhat fitting for the era.

It's looking like possibly 3 returning, 5 new...

Cinder (?)/Combo/Maya for S2

Riptor/Tusk/Kim Wu for S3

May be 4 returning, 4 new too. Doubt they will only have 1 character returning for S3.

Looks pretty generic and dull, will have to see her in action first. Sadira was awesome both visually and gameplay-wise, so she has big shoes to fill.
