Killer Instinct Finishes its Second Season and Continues to Innovate

The latest update for Killer Instinct came out hot on the heels of the ARIA reveal from Combo Breaker 2015. The update not only included some patch fixes and ARIA, but also the new Shadows Mode which is creating quite the buzz among the fighting game community. While this update completed the roster for the entire cast of Killer Instinct Season 2, there’s more to come, including the full Season 2 story mode, Female Announcer, and the rest of the cast playable in Shadows Mode. To be sure that this isn’t going to be the last time we hear of Killer Instinct throughout the year, we can’t forget the update of Shadow Jago with the $100,000 raised in a staggeringly short time of 72 hours to be divided among future tournaments. While the future for both Killer Instinct and Iron Galaxy is looking extraordinarily bright, let’s take a look at what is currently available beginning with ARIA.

Never a huge KI fan but I do love how MS brought this game back and the attention and detail it has received.

The ultra finish combos are hilarious and the dynamic music that syncs with each hit is amazing. It's those little things that impresses me to no end.

That shadow mode sounds like a beast.

I love it! Especially when I ruin somebody c-c-c-combo with a c-c-c-c-combo brrrreaker! followed by an U-u-u-u-Ultraaaa!*echoes*

oooooaaaargh! oooooaarrrgh!*echoes*

I should also point out, if anybody is thinking of getting this, just buy the whole damn bundle. The original two arcade games are included and its nice to take that trip down memory lane. The new KI definitely play better though!

I loved the first season and still need to purchase the 2nd season. This is one of the most accurate fighting games I've played in awhile. The timing has to be right on to get the hit or break the combos. If you practice the moves in Practice Mode you can appreciate how much skill and timing is needed to pull of all the moves. I need to play more of this game. Mortal Kombat X took me away for awhile, but I'll return soon.

Great game ...i said it when i saw Mk i said...i think mk will not be better than ki...and i think i was right...and im a fan off both since the snes...

OmegaShen1229d ago

Thats why you have one bubble, its a good game but its like DOA. Pay for new characters stand of giving a game with alot of characters on disc.

SliceOfTruth8881229d ago

lol i can already guarantee Omega only owns PS4

marlinfan101229d ago

He has one bubble because he says he prefers one game over another?

4Sh0w1229d ago (Edited 1229d ago )

Omega, KI is a amazing reboot that gets you 8 characters for $20= Season 1.
Also $40 gets you Season 1 + the original game and all the costumes. You only have to pay for new characters if you choose to play the free character and only want to buy a few separate characters...WHY do that? The better deal is obviously $20 for all the new characters or $40 for everything, its the same deal for Season 2 and that is a helluva value for KI, its a great game that they keeps growing and growing. Microsoft has been doing a great job supporting their exclusives so I don't see the need for your trolling on this topic.

mhunterjr1229d ago

That's BS, you can buy all the characters at once if you like... And the prices are fair...

OmegaShen1229d ago (Edited 1229d ago )

Truth hurts I know.

P.S. Slice, I own all systems but a PC, Wii U and New 3DS XL. But it doesn't matter.

marlinfan101229d ago

Lol thanks for filling us in on the truth. I think i speak for everyone here when I say we appreciate it

GenuineGamer1229d ago (Edited 1229d ago )

Hey OmegaShen look at this. Killer instinct on a disc. Just like any other normal game.

The difference is, we also get the option to download it and play it for free on a rotating character selection, and then if we choose we can buy single characters or the whole game in one go.

Its everything a physical game is and more.

Truth hurts, i know.

You own all systems, except for PC, Wii U and new 3DSXL. So you dont own them all. Lol..
