Killer Instinct to get more blood and tag team modes

Xbigy Games takes a closer look at some of the footage from Killer Instinct. (Killer Instinct, Xbox One)

Awesome news tag team mode is a plus for this terrific game.
Snookies12  +   726d ago
You don't know if it's terrific yet though... It's by developers with a really bad track record. So, even though I'm a HUGE Killer Instinct fan, I'm quite worried to be honest. I guess I'll see when it comes out... I want it to be good, I really do. It's just that I'm not convinced yet is all. :\
Xbigygames  +   726d ago
I won't be convinced until I play it either, but all the feedback has largely been positive so far.

The devs have a bad track record, but they have pretty much been rebuilt by MS with people that worked for different fighting games.

Will know more come Nov :D

I was at first a bit skeptical when i heard who was developing it but every single preview of the game by people who have actually played it has been extremely positive. It also helps that i am highly impressed with what i have seen so far.

MadCatz themselves are sponsoring Killer Instinct. You don't think that if the game didn't perform well, that MadCatz would think to sponsor something like this? Besides people like Maximillan on Youtube who have a history of fighting games have said that it's great.

I was kinda sceptic after the announcement but playing it at E3 was pure awesome, especially gameplay with the arcade game set. i especially am a huge street fighter fan and this may be better, need o play more in my opinion.

@Robochobo - I didn't say it was going to be bad. I just said we don't know if it'll be good yet. There is a reason I'm wary. If the developers haven't made great games in the past, it should be understandable that I'm worried about the fate of a franchise I really love. That's all it is... Not saying they're going to screw it up. I just hope for the best is all, and we won't know how well it holds up until it actually comes out. It seems like people disagreeing didn't quite get what I was saying.

We do know it will be good, cause it has yet to receive a negative preview from people who played it.

On top of that we know facts like the original KI people are overseeing the project.
Then theres also community feedback that Double Helix is listening to.

@Snookies
I agree, it's the fact that it's not made by the original developers that makes you hope that Killer Instinct is as good as the ones from the 90s. Plus I don't like the developer's history, but if Rare is helping them out then most likely this will stay true to the original. Performing some of the craziest combos in any fighting game being the main thing. But all in all, I hope it turns out great. I was a big fan of the original, even played the arcade version before it hit the N64 known as Killer Instinct: Gold.

I feel like those devs have been stuck with crappy movie properties and have only been able to sink their teeth into one presentable game.

Maybe this is their time to shine. I get what youre saying though. I am not big into fighting games, but I have a lot of friends who are excited for this title. It would be a shame for them to blow this with lame mechanics or whatnot.
aceitman  +   726d ago
And u may have to buy the modes.
Erudito87  +   726d ago
i was excited until i saw double helix was involved
Foxgod  +   726d ago
Lurk more, then youl find out why Killer Instinct will be awesome.
Erudito87  +   726d ago
i still have my original super nintendo cartridge but console is broken lol
Xbigygames  +   726d ago
read the comments above...
Foxgod  +   726d ago
This game is going to be bloody marvelous.
Stryfeno2  +   726d ago
Bloody Extrreeeeemmme
No_Limit  +   726d ago
Day One...now with blood.
mcstorm  +   726d ago
I cant wait to get this on my Xbox one and November cant come quick enough. Wanted a KI game since the N64.
supraking951  +   726d ago
This isn't Rare and this isn't going to be the Killer Instinct we once loved and knew. M$ threw out all the precious nostalgia out the door and pissed all over it with this Xbone free to play non sense.
They didnt even bother to release it on 360 where millions of loyal fans wanted it on the first place.
PS4 out yet?
Foxgod  +   726d ago
The creator(s) of the original Killer instinct are overlooking this project.
So it doesnt matter if its Rare.

I rather have the original creators work on KI, and have Rare work on something else.

And why the heck would we want a 360 version, isstead of this amazing fullhd 60fps with awesome particle effect goodness?

Most people that were at Rare left years ago.

Your mentality of, "We wanted the game, they didn't make it for the console I wanted, but fuck them - now they are making it," is pretty special.

I smell a fanboy...
Foxgod  +   726d ago
What are you talking about, we wanted them to make it for the Xbox, and they are making it for the Xbox, stop your senseles whining.

And again if you didnt read it, the original creators are overlooking the project......
Robochobo  +   726d ago
What is... Kevin Lobb himself. The man who made the original Killer Instinct is helping make this one. Edit: Think Goldeneye as well, the Klobb was named after him.

i love that they're listening to the fans... so far the game has received nothing but positive reviews i hope the final build lives up to the KI hype!
mcstorm  +   726d ago
I agree. I know the One has had a lot of stick over the DRM and once every 24 hour sign in but the games speak for them selfs and for me the one has the best line up of games I want at launch. Add that to the amazing games I am picking up for my Wiiu its going to be an expensive end to the year.
Stryfeno2  +   726d ago
Alex Valle, Justin Wong, Ryan Hart and Maximillan said it was fun and a rival in the FGC.

Most of you n4g fanboys don't know who these people are and if they say the game is good....trust me, the game is good.

Killer Instinct on Xbox one day one.
BlaqMagiq24  +   726d ago
I know who they are and I gotta admit they made the game look real fun to me. Saw someone pull off an 80 hit ultra.
sandman224  +   726d ago
I hope double fenix delivers the goods. I grew up going to the arcade and spending a ton of quarters in KI. It was my favorite fighting game.
weirdo  +   726d ago
this looks utter poop. i'll stick with the mame version, thanks.
Neoninja  +   726d ago
I'm so excited for this game. I knew they would add more blood, but not a tag team mode. I really can't wait to see more of it at EVO!
Stryfeno2  +   726d ago
^^^This
Belking  +   726d ago
Yes! This is great news. Killer Instinct is gonna be awesome to play on day 1.
reko  +   726d ago
