Thunder is getting a fresh new look for Killer Instinct Defintive Edition, according to an announcement via Xbox Wire. Microsoft re-designed the character to be more culturually appropriate.
The company explains that they collaborated with the Nez Perce tribe in Lapwai, Idaho to create a new, modern look for the Native American. Thunder’s costume is described as being a “100 percent authentic warrior outfit derived from cultural traditions and dress."
Microsoft is offering the new skin to all Killer Instinct users free-of-charge as a commemorative token of thanks to the Nez Perce tribe. The Legend of Thunder design will be released next week on December 21st on Xbox One alongside the release for Windows 10.
