IGN and Double Helix show you what the new Chief Thunder looks like in Killer Instinct for the Xbox One.
The game is looking really good
Incredible. Jago is still my favorite redesign. So friggin hyped for this.
Oh man Chief Thunder looks badass...loving these charachter reveals, it not even Gamescom yet. MORE, just show me more. Good times to be a gamer.
Killer Instinct is one of many killer apps for the Xb1.
He Looks Awesome and the gameplay looks great! Hoping this version of the game creates a franchise.
agreed. if they can nail this, then hopefully it will continue
Love this character design. The cyber punk version of the old games just wouldn't work with the vision of the new game. Love the first 3 characters and love Thunder here. November can't come fast enough!
totally agree. the 4 characters so far look great i aint bought a fighting game since tekken tag on my launch day ps2 lol. but this is getting downloaded day one. looks awesome
AMEN KI just keeps getting better and better I am still crossing fingers and toes and hoping to see gameplay with my all time favorite KI character Spinal. I'm so psyched for this game (DAY 1 purchase for sure, which is a no brainer for me personally) that I just have to scream: ULLLLLLLLTTTTTRRRRAAAAAA COOOOOOMBO!!!!!!!!!!
i wonder who they are going to show at gamescom?? i have to agree, the game does keep getting better. and listening to the guys talk about it on the vid, they sound passionate about it. lol that ULLLLLLLLTTTTTRRRRAAAAAA COOOOOOMBO is going to sound great blasting out of my home cinema. i just need to know the release day now. i want to book a few days off of work
He looks so bad ass! Thunder definitely makes the most sense as the character to become a grappler, since we all knew the game was getting one. Cannot wait to see more at Gamescom and pick this up in November! Edit: Btw did anyone else notice the color swap on Jago? I'm thinking that might be Shadow Jago.
WOW. He looks awesome. I'm loving the 60fps.
Yeah the 60 fps makes we just really wanna see this game in person again, rather than watching videos online :/
This guy dedicates his youtube channel to fighting games and is a great resource for KI Xboxone information, combos...etc http://www.youtube.com/chan... He is actually pretty good at the game..already did a 100+ combo..
Thats Nicolas Cage!
Pretty sure the video is capped at 30FPS.
http://youtu.be/h_gROzjqaX0... It runs at 60FPS.
Oh I know the game runs at 60FPS. I mean when it gets uploaded to Youtube it gets capped at 30FPS. It is like that with all Youtube videos.
It's sad it's only on the Xbox one : /
Rumor and speculation says that ps4 will be getting Bloody Roar. Which is another game that I would love to see make a comeback. The only thing I think I am going to miss is his PHOEEEEEEENIX projectile. KI does look great though....cannot wait to play it.
Bloody Roar,I remember playing that game the first time..I loved the ending last hit replays...
Ah we'll.... ;0)
Where else would it release??? Killer Instinct belongs to Rare and in turn Rare belongs to Microsoft. Yeah its highly doubtful this game would release for the Ps4 as well.
That's what I'm talking about..I'm waiting for T.J COMBO
The more I see of this game, the more it impresses me.
Thunder looks awesome but still not going to buy xb1 day one.
Not saying it doesnt look great, but... I miss the mohawk. seriously :(
i dont know, the mohawk always made me think of birdie from street fighter (the original)
Damn. Xbox One hitting it right out the park with this one. Talk about a variety of games to own and play at launch. Thunder is looking super bad a## I am not mad at the new direction they went in. Good job DH, you guys are finding your stride and going with it. Edit: @kewlkt007 LOL at TJ Combo! yea man, I want to see how they'll update him. I really hope they don't go the stereo typical "black man-boxer" route that a lot of other fighting games do...but I think they will anyways. Edit2: @melman I was actually going to comment on that after my TJ remark which is why I said they would probably go the stereo route. Doesn't matter though, still loving the hell out of this game. XBOX ONE DAY ONE!
Rejoice it's on xbox one. People have been waiting so long for this game. It's been a very long time coming and it's looking to be a killer gamer. :)
While I agree with the first part of your statement, the second part doesn't really make any sense. You might as well say the Chief Thunder should not be and Indian man with 2 tomahawks. I hope they keep him as close to the original as possible with a few updates.
This is looking fracking aaaaawwweeesomeee..... This is my most anticipated game of the next gen....
If there was one game to ALMOST force me to BUY an XBONE is Killer Instinct!! WOW looking sooo GOOD!!
Chief Thunder looks GREAT. I love the thought and detail the devs have put into the new direction of his appearance and story line. I agree with gedden7. Even though I'm a Forza fanatic, this is the game I have been waiting on for nearly 20 years and the biggest reason I would want an XBOX ONE. These devs come off so passionate about this franchise and the work what they're putting into this title. Now I'm anticipating more information / new character videos. I wanna see TJ Combo next.
Now that kinect isn't needed i can finally get an xone and KI.But after a price drop. Also why does he remind me of T.Hawk so much?
Looking pretty good, looking forward to Fulgore, Spinal and Tusk
Weird that a fighting game is my most anticipated game for a new gen. Double Helix is knocking this one out of the ozone.
I look forward to seeing FulGore's new design.
I honestly hope they announce him next!
This looks awesome. Looks like double helix has found its calling.
It looks freaking amazing! Im digging the new look. Cant wait to play this on my future XBO come release date.
He looks awful, what trash. I was a huge KI fan in the SNES days. No feather mohawk no Thunder.
Yo Chief Thunder look boss. I already can tell he's going to be a very good character. Next character that need to be revealed is fulgor, riptor, or spinal
It looks great for real the new chief...they should put the mohak back for real that guy its gonna look badas with his original mohak i think....it looks like nightwolf maybe a lil bit but if they change to that mohak mmmmmm that'll be great i think...anyways it looks great ok.but if u put tha mohak it'll look better . I mean u cant take the mask out of jago .the axes out of thunder or the sword out of tusk right??? Just saying ..anyway i preorder long time ago....
I like the new look, can't wait to see what they did with Fulgore
Never played the original KI's but I love grapplers and this guys looks insane in terms of tools/look/awesomeness
So far Thunder is the only character I like in the new KI so far design-wise. The rest look like rubbish, particularly Glacius. Jago too....
This looks like it'll be one of the best fighting games ever
wow am seriously having some.crazy nostalgia over this game ...the title music alone gets me giddy double helix focus and dedication to this game is incredible....am getting a.season pass for KI for sure....hope they add 1 or 2 new characters as well... I wanna see what they can come up with without the confines of doing existing characters from KI ,but restrictions free as to show how creative they really can be
ok, is anyone concerned at 2:06 that a grappler character has a dash that moves further, completely invulnerable AND can be Super cancelled? Anyways this game is really looking bad a**. I was not a fan of the old KI but this has some serious promise so far. Also, you just know they're going have Original skins as DLC.
No because grapplers tend to be harder unless you know what you're doing because they are slow and any decent player would just keep his distance while using quick strikes/ranged attacks which is hard for you defend and do similar offensive damage because grapplers don't usually have a lot of long range capabilities so this balances out that weakness. That's the key to fighting games is that balancing each characters strengths and weakness is really hard to get just right, hell I can't think of 1 fighting game where the balance in attacks is perfect and it won't be in KI either of course, but as long as all the characters are dangerous in the right hands then you have yourself a helluva fighting game, which quite frankly imo except for Injustice the genre has been pretty stale for awhile. I seriously don't know what took greedy micro so long, many fans have been asking for some KI action for years, KI is truly 1 of my old favorites so DH definitely has my attention. yeah while I like the new character overhauled looks a lot better than just releasing it with upgraded graphics of the old look, I still think it would be cool as hell just for nostalgia's sake to have original character skins DLC.
I understand this but the point of a grappler character is that he's slow and very hard to get in on another character. that is where the work comes in because once a grappler gets inside the payoff is immense. I'm just really afraid of a high damaging grappler, with a half screen full dash that's invincible and can be super cancelled. Just thinking about that sends shivers down my spine.
I still like the original character designs and music more! hopefully we can get the classic design and original music thru DLC or something?
