Penny Arcade accidentally leaks that Fulgore will be the final Season One character for the new Killer Instinct

A little less than a month ago, Penny Arcade revealed the cover art for the Killer Instinct Pin Ultimate Edition that may have accidentally leaked two characters that weren't known at the time. In the new Killer Instinct, each character has a special icon associated with them. Upon further investigation of the cover, there were two icons we haven't seen yet. A skull with crossbones, and a radioactive symbol. Fans quickly figured out that the skull and crossbones must be for Spinal, and sure enough, Spinal was confirmed at the end of Orchids combo trailer. 

The other symbol was a little harder to figure out. Most fans came to the conclusion that it was either Fulgore or Cinder. Looks like all the speculation can be put to rest.

Eventhubs reports that earlier today, Penny Arcade posted an article where they showed the inside of the Pin Ultimate edition and OOPS, looks like they forget to block out the last name. Fulgore is listed at the bottom right, next to the recently revealed Spinal and the other season one characters. The picture was soon taken down and replaced by another with "TOP SECRET" over Fulgore's name. The damage had already been done as the picture was saved and is now out in the wild.

So it looks like your season one cast of Killer Instinct will be Jago, Saberwulf, Thunder, Glacius, Sadira, Orchid, Spinal and Fulgore. Not too shabby if you ask me. I have been waiting 17 years for this game and it's only a few weeks away. Killer Instinct will be released digitally when Xbox One launches on November 22nd.
