Shadow Jago
shadow-jago-boss-pose.png (1605472 bytes)


Torn by inner conflict for his past deeds, Jago embraces the tiger spirit only to discover it is a false prophet. Corrupted by the evil of Gargos, Jago is transformed into Shadow Jago, a dark reflection of the once noble warrior. Driven to conflict, every defeated opponent feeds energy directly to Gargos, drawing him closer to this plane of reality and the eventual destruction of mankind.

Shadow Jago first appeared as a re-skinned Jago in Killer Instinct for Xbox One, along with being a secret boss character. When the Killer Instinct Community Fund reached its goal of $100,000 in May 2015, the developers announced that Shadow Jago would get his own unique moveset by the end of 2015. Shadow Jago debuted as his own character in the game on December 4th, 2015.

Damn, Shadow Jago looks cool. Naturally, Jago finally got (and deserves) his own Evil Ryu rendition. It's been a long time coming! It's pretty interesting how Shadow Jago evolved from just a skin into his own character with unique animations and special moves.

However, I will always remember this character as "the character I didn't unlock after buying Killer Instinct Season 3 for $59.99." Seriously Iron Galaxy? I bought the ultimate version of this game... and still didn't get to unlock Shadow Jago. :( LAAAAME. And that's why Shadow Jago will remain un-rated.
