I've been on quite a Killer Instinct binge lately, thanks to the latest (and I think, best) character so far introduced into the roster- Hisako, the Ghost Girl! A former Japanese Samurai's daughter in the Feudal Era, Hisako died fighting bandits who invaded her village. She has risen from her grave to wreak vengeance on those responsible for desecrating her shrine- none other than the villainous Ultratech and its minions.
So I guess this kinda makes her a good guy, even if she's pretty creepy.
Obvioualy, Hisako was patterned after things like the Ring movie or The Grudge (Ju-On), and her execution is perfect. Animation-wise, voice, fighting style- Iron Galaxy hit it perfectly. But of course, the best part is she's barefoot, like every good Ghostly Woman should.
Of course, those aren't the most kissable or clean babe feet to worship, but as an overall package, Hisako is still fetching for a vengeful spirit. I imagine there will be a lot of fans out there who will still find her- um, look- quite appealing.
In any case, Hisako's gameplay is pretty cool and I admit I have found myself so much more into the game after her release. She's certainly become my favorite fighter to use, even if I still think Maya (retro outfit) is the game's best-looking barefoot babe (and the one who's feet and soles I'd prefer in my face.... hahaha).
The game still has one more potential barefoot babe- hoping that Iron Galaxy has designed the mysterious ARIA the way we want her... barefoot and evil and gorgeous. For now though, we have Maya and Hisako to enjoy in this game- one babe hot, tall and sexy, the other cold, beautiful and scary. Works for me!
