Rash From Battletoads Joins Killer Instinct


Microsoft revealed some really cool news at Gamescom this morning. In honor of Rare Replay releasing, Rash from Battletoads will be joining Killer Instinct season 3! Starting today, gamers can test play him until September 8th. Here is his move set taken from ultra-com.com:

Rash Bash – Back + HP.
Rash bashes opponent with an overhead attack, leaving them with a severe headache!

RUN! – > >  (Hold)
Rash is always ready for a fight and runs towards his enemies.

Wicked Tongue –  All 3 Punch Buttons or LB on the Xbox One controller
Rash can zipline in any direction when his tongue makes contact with a wall or opponent.  Wicked Tongue can also be used to eat most projectiles and gain Shadow Meter. Om nom nom nom!

Big Bad Boot – QCF + Any Kick
Rash kicks the opponent in the face with a spiked big boot.  Respect the Boot!

Wrecking Ball – QCB + Any Kick
Rash morphs into a wrecking ball and swings across the stage.  Causes a wall splat against grounded opponents, and a hard knockdown when the opponent is airborne.  Has 1 point of armor because he’s one tough dude!

Battering Ram – QCF + Any Punch
Rash sprouts ram horns and charges towards his opponent.

Turbo Tunnel (Activate Instinct Mode with HP + HK)
Summons a Speeder Bike from out of nowhere!  Damages the opponent on impact.  Wreck your Speederbike?  No problem!  Rash can summon another one by pressing HP+HK again while in Instinct.

To get access to Rash, all gamers have to do is launch Rare Replay and he will become play-testable. As for season 3 of Killer Instinct, it will launch in March of 2016. I love the idea of Rash joining the cast of Killer Instinct! His moves look great and it pays tribute to a series I grew up with. I’m interested to see if players will use him, especially in tournaments. That would be fun to watch.
