Next Gen Fighters: Step up!

As a gamer that loves fighting games I cannot wait to see what the next gen consoles have to offer. Will we see new versions of popular titles like Street Fighter, Marvel vs. Capcom, Mortal Kombat, Soul Calibur, and Tekken? That would be lovely but, what I really want to see is a fresh fighting game, something new instead of recycled. Persona 4 Arena did that for me this Gen. It took a very good RPG and made it a fighter and a good one at that. The graphics where nice, the game mechanics were somewhat recycled from Guilty Gear and Blaze Blue series but were solid.This type of fresh outlook is what next gen consoles really need. (PS4, Wii U, Xbox One)

Microsoft have been busy with the Killer Instinct brand, so most likely we'll see KI3 on the X720.
Just hope it's not some Kinect2 fascade, it's a game that I'd buy a Xbox720 for.

How could they implement Kinect with Killer Instinct? I know that is what everyone says, but seriously, how could you pull it off? If anything it might have voice controls or something for the menu's, but if people are going to assume something, at least figure out how they'd pull it off.

They'd probably release Killer Instinct on XBLA and see how it did before going with a full new retail release.

Better be at least a T and have no Avatars in it.

If this comes back, I want Clayfighter to follow :P

I hope it makes its way to ps4. I prefer the controller for fighters. I'm going off of the 720 leaks that tell us the controller is pretty much the same. So ds4 would feel better for ki3 or any other fighter. And for the record I wouldn't buy an arcade stick to play a fighter.

A.Microsoft owns the Killer Instinct IP
B.You have never touched a PS4 controller, how do you know it'd feel better for fighters?
C.Are you seriously basing rumors as fact for the next Xbox controller?

I just noticed your a one bubble.....

Kicking myself for feeding a troll..

I used to love my fighting games but this gen I just switched off from it all, def needs new fighting franchises. Stop with the street fighters and tekkens.

Every fighting game this gen has become an off-set of Marvel Vs. Capcom:

Launch > juggle > juggle > juggle > juggle > tag > juggle > juggle > super move = at least 50% gone.

Picked up Tekken Tag 2 the other day, i'm done with it after 400 fights online. Set up the launchers, take 50% health, rinse and repeat.

The Kinect sucks I hope they do away with that peroid. Shortstory should a bought a wii. I was a big fan of this series back when I was a kid. Its been been dead and buried for a long time so they should just leave it that way. They have also been talking about making KI3 for the last ten years. It could happen but I doubt it.

i cant wait for Killer Instinct on the PS4 and X720

josephayal I hope you're seating in a block of ice because when it comes it'll be for Xbox since Microsoft owns Rare the owners of the Killer Instinct IP.

They should make another "Eternal Champions" for Ps4/xbox i use to love that game.
Arai  +   718d ago
You guys do realize that Rare is owned by Microsoft, right?
Meaning it would be exclusive to the Xbox 360/720 if it happens.

Even I would have prefer to play it on a DS4 controller, but facts are facts.
