The final boss of Killer Instinct Season 2, Aria, has finally received a gameplay video, and she is without question one of the most interesting and best-animated characters in the Xbox One-exclusive fighting game. We finally get to see her fight.
Aria is one very unique character. Unlike the other Killer Instinct
fighters, all of who only have one gameplay variation, the Ultratech CEO has three! That’s right, like Mortal Kombat X
, she’s three fighting variations that you can choose from. However, unlike Mortal Kombat X
, you can actually use all three during the fight, switching (warping) between them as you please.

More specifically, Aria has 3 body types -- Booster, Blade, and Base -- that each give her access to different attacks and traits. She is also the only fighter to have three health bars, which if added up, amount to the full health bar of everyone else's in the game.
In other words, instead of having her health split into 2 bars (one for each round), it is divided into 3 smaller ones. You must deplete all 3 health bars (i.e. defeat all three of her ‘bodies’) to completely defeat her, making for a very interesting and engaging fight.
The following video describes Aria in more detail. Watch it and let us know if she is a good fit for Killer Instinct
