Do you have Killer Instincts?

jago_vs_sabrewulf_1

If you are an arcade fighting game junkie, you’ll remember the 1994 Rare game Killer Instinct. As announced at E3 it’s being remade exclusively for the Xbox One, check out what the developers have to say about it.

Killer Instinct for the Xbox One is in development by Double Helix Games. In this developer documentary, the team takes you behind the scenes of how the game came to be and what they’re planning for it.

So far three completely redesigned characters have been showcased: Jago, Sabrewulf and Glacius. No release date has been specified. If you want a more in-depth look at the game itself, you can read our E3 hands-on with the game. It has been said that Killer Instinct will release as both a retail and free-to-play title, coming with only Jago. If players want more characters, they’ll have to purchase the DLC.

Here, have some screenshots.

I like bacon and games, and occasionally I say something coherent about it. I'm not old or cynical, and I'm not the Dork Knight. I AM SHE-RA! Wait, what?

    Oh man, I really hope they don’t screw this up. Problem is these okies do not have a good rep!

      The environments are nice, but the particle effects really make the game shine. The character models are very current gen looking, otherwise.
      I can’t wait to see what Capcom do with Street Fighter for next gen consoles.

        FOUND IT… OLD FUTHER FUCKING OLD SCHOOL. The new one has nothing on stop motion

        • OneManRiot

          I still play this game regularly on MAME… I hook up my PS3 controller to my PC and try to do as much shadow combos as possible….

  • Weanerdog

    This was the game with the lady who did the booby fatality was it not

    • Argentil

      That it was.

    • OneManRiot

      Her name was Orchid….

    This is what I was going on about the other day.

    STOP MOTION!!! REMEMBER THAT RARE OOOOOPPPPssss I forgot, RARE are not doing this one.

    BESIDES MY POINT. STOP MOTION

    Like PRIMAL RAGE, KILLER INSTINCT and MORTAL KOMBAT 1. IT was all stop motion, clay fighters, real actors,

    I never FUCKING understood how suck a cool art form could get so lost but during the time of GRAPHICS hard knocks IT FUCKING ROCKED.

    That SPINE RIP back in 1994 was so FATALITY because it felt REAL more than anything NEVEREALM STUDIOS can think up.

    This is what I grew up with. NOW WATCH KIDDIES. This is before THE ESRB STARTED COMMING IN THEIR PANTS.

    IT SICKENS MY OLDSCHOOL GAMING BONES

    THIS IS THE SHIT NOOOOOOOOOOOOOBOT

    KILLER INSTINCT MUST BE STOP MOTION LIKE MK1 OR IT FAILS.

    YES!!! YOU MO FOS. The games master was the best scientist who died 3 months ago SIR FUCKING Patrick Moore

    This is the TV that Rince This and OVG watched in England back in 12992.

    OLDSCHOOL I salute the best scientist of our popular time Patrick Moore

    You new age gamers SUCK. I would rather watch Christopher Reeve get drunk in a bar WITH NO MUSCLES than this CGI SUPERBOLLOCKS SUPER DOOOPERMAN.

    GOD DAMMIT, why can we just not keep things the way they were without CGI as a WHORE in the background.

    It is all so over the fucking top. The Spock Kirk scene OLDSCHOOL beats that JJ Abrahams rush job while 3 other action scenes are all going on at once.

    Do you newbies not realize that it was the scene that counts???? your attention span and forgettfullness is making me feel really old.

    KHAAAAAAAN!!!! OLD SCHOOL far better than new. Not even my Grandfather would say that, because he would say new is better than old. BUT DARN we live in an age where the kids who apprichiated music from beyond their time (like the 70s and 80s) are telling the kids to TRY AND OPEN THEIR FUCKING EYES) To appreciate more than THE NOW.

      FUCK JUSTIN BIN LINER!!! YOU STUPID FUCK HEADS and listing to some shit before my time.

  • Argentil

    Did someone tranquillize OVG?

      Devils Urine

    • http://lazygamer.net/ OVG

      Tee hee hee. You remember OldFarts rants 2 years ago?… WELL IM BACK

      • Argentil

        Nope, thankfully I’m a very intermittent reader and I missed out on those particular outbursts.
        Have a cookie, or maybe go nuts on some drums if that would suit you better.

          The worst thing is having a competitive brother who is now going on about having more hits on LG than me… lol

          • http://lazygamer.net/ OVG

  • FoxOneZA – X-Therminator

    I remember the pain that was Perfect Dark Zero when the Xbox 360 launched. I hope we don’t see the same fate for Killer Instinct.
