High definition official artwork of the four announced characters of Killer Instinct directly from Double Helix Games.
I've played the original KI on SNES before, though it wasn't mine. At that age I wasn't HUGE into fighting games, though I did like and own Super Street Fighter II. I mostly remember KI from seeing it being played at a family friend's house on their birthday once. When I do think of KI, the first character I think of is Orchid, then Glacius next, then Cinder (I know, palette swap). I guess they were the ones used most when I saw it because those are the characters that first come to mind when I think of KI, especially Orchid. Glacius has been shown already, but for me, I can't wait to see Orchid.
It's weird to me cause I was introduced to KI with KI2 so for me the main go to characters are Fulgore, Sabrewulf, Jago, and Glacius. I know a lot of people are hoping for B. Orchid at Gamescom, but I would go ecstatic to see Fulgore, Spinal, or Kim Wu :)
Yea, I can't wait to see them nice big.........boots.
Lol I think you spelled "boots" wrong ;)
God I love boots...
"Core Four" lacking Fulgore and Orchid.
I think Orchid will be next character and teased at Gamescom. They have done an amazing job so far, Thunder in particular is looking awesome!
I simply cannot wait for this damn game ughhhhh
How many character will there be in the game? I have a feeling they will launch the game with just few (5 or 6) and then sell the others separately. Which would be a bad decision.
I believe they announced all characters will return with new additional new charscters
colonel first off Jago will be free the rest will be available for purchase individually or you can buy them ALL. Hell no it won't be just 6 for launch, if so I'll be the first to call BS, it will probably be 11 or 12 at least since KI and KI2 both had 11 each with most being the same characters, so I hope when that happens you will be the first to congratulate them for having twice as many as you predicted.
Hopefully you're right JOY. IMO, It would be awesome to have every KI & KI2 character, each with their stages, humiliations, ultimates, stage fatalities, etc. Then add new characters if they want. The problem is that it doesn't seem that way so far. They haven't said anything about ultimates, and they have only revealed 4 characters when the games launches in November. I don't have any problem if they break down the game to just one character for people who want to get the experience and buy each character they like individually. That's actually a good idea, but they must release a complete product, or else, MS will have another backlash, the game will get bad reception, and double helix will still be considered a bad developer. So here I hope that they are just being secretive about the entire game.
Want to see Combo and Spinal. Those were my two favorites.
I love breaking combos and talking mad smack. lol
I can hardly remember anything about killer instinct. . I do remember TJ combo on the n64?
