This will be a badass game if it actually does turn out in HD lets hope it does
a 360 just to play the game.
lol ya this is good news still wish there was a chance of seeing i on ps3 the game needs a usable dpad.
this game will be great if they used unreal engine
Rare always makes their own engines, I don't think they have ever used a external engine.
I thought this was one of the requirements to release a game over Xbox Live Arcade. -Death
Soul Calibur uses a 4:3 aspect ratio. Killer Instinct would be awesome in HD. No brainer purchase for me.
One of the requirements is to update the graphics, but I think that might be arcade ports though.
Well, SC is actually 16:9, since it has the sides just chopped off, with the SC emblems on those sides. I'm still sad that they didn't include so much from the original game.
Is aspect ratio what determines whether a game is HD?
Let's look back at Megaman. Megaman 1-6 on the NES - AWESOME!! Megaman 7 on the SNES - TERRIBLE!! Megaman 8 on the PS1 - BETTER THAN MEGAMAN 7 BUT STILL NOT THAT GREAT!! Megaman X1-X3 on the SNES - BEYOND AWESOME!! Megaman X4-X5 on the PS1 - GOOD!! Megaman X6 on the PS1 - TERRIBLE AGAIN!! So you can see why I don't think that updating it is a good idea, right? At least this way, it's guaranteed to be as awesome as it was 10 years ago! :)
The games developed in 4:3 for square tv's/arcade cabinets won't be changed to widescreen 16:9 unless they are completely remade which isn't common. For those unsure of resolutions, 480i is standard definition while 720p, 1080i and 1080p are considered high definition. These numbers represent pixel density. Aspect ratio only determines the shape of the image on screen. Most HDTV's are wide screen tv's. -Death
Can be played in HD but looks exactly the same. For a game like this they should remake it in HD. Or give it the smoother thing like they did with the Sonic games.
not all XBLA are HD,i have Street Fighter 2 and its not, nither is Contra. Most re-made games get HD upgrades though, like 1942Joint Strike, Commandos and Bionic Commando, i love the trailers they do for those games. They start em off with the old graphics then merge in the new ones to show you how awesome they've made it now.
It better be.
If they are going to go back and render all the games assets in 720 or 1080P. I would assume it's possible since all the content is based on prerendered CGI.
yea and rare is coming along nicely with all there great titles such as kameo 2, conker 3, viva pinata 2, banjo kazooie etc
Please let this rumor be real. I have been waiting for an arcade perfect port of Killer Instinct for what seems like forever now.
My bubble stalker strikes again. It makes no sense to disagree with me. Unless you are somebody I pissed off and is just being vindictive towards me. Damn ex-girlfriend syndrome on N4G. I wish there was a way to see who was taking your bubbles or hitting disagree. Mod Alert: The bubble system on N4G is broken.
don't forget Killer Insticts
next gen KI
IF MS does release a KI3 Game, with say KI2 as an extra I will consider getting a Xbox for sure.
If it goes HD 1080p visuals would kick ass!
If that's true then... SIGN ME UP FOR THIS GAME. I love Killer Instinct.
Killer Instinct RULZ!!!!! :D Day 1 purchase if I had a 360. Oh, wait. I'll just play it at my friend's house! YAHOO AGAIN!!! :D :D :D :D :D EDIT: @ Kyur4ThePain If you can report me saying yahoo as spam, then I can do the same thing to you because YOU SAID GOOGLE!!! XD @ Juuken You know what's interesting? I just realized that I have the Super Nintendo hooked up right now with Killer Instinct in it (no joke). Hmmmmmm. Excuse me for a moment XD *plays Killer Instinct* YEAH!!! Damn, that's a good game!! :)
Come on, dude. What's with the Yahoo advertising? We don't need that here in the gamer zone! Google rules!!!
so i guess you changed your mind again about buying a 360, huh? first you said you will....then you said never.... now your back to you will. good to see such a die hard playstation fan realize how great xbox 360 really is for gaming.
1. I would have gotten the 360 first if it wasn't for the RROD. 2. I changed my mind when I saw that article about the 360 and the RROD and said I would get a Wii. 3. Seeing my brother with the 360 convinced me to go on to getting one. But I will pick up the Wii in the future. 4. I don't hate everything 360 related you know. I'm just not fond of Gears and Halo. 5. Killer Instinct is one of my favorite fighting games.
you sure don't sound like the same person from a few weeks ago, thats for damn sure!! gotta wonder what game your brother was playing that convinced you.... And to dismiss Halo and Gears would be a mistake.... try playing Halo 3 with 3 of your friends co-op and then come back to me and try telling me it wasn't alot of fun... and thats not even going into the multi-player. And Gears is my fav game this gen so far... the graphics, music, multi-player, and co-op is absolutely sick!! i was hooked on that game like crack for months!! but a little piece of advice, i have the Wii and it collects dust. it's nice to show friends when they come over, and thats about it. I myself will always support nintendo because it has 3 of my fav franchises that I grew up with, Mario, Metroid, and Zelda. The quality of those games are always AAA. so unless your like me and grew up playing those games and love them... i'm 100% sure PS and Xbox will have their own motion controllers on par if not better than the Wii in the near future.
People change etownone. I'm trying to be a little more open minded these days. Maybe I'll try Halo 3 and Gears. But for now I'm only looking forward to rpg's and Ninja Gaiden 2 for the 360.
well, if you liked NG sigma... your going to love ng2!! and if you like RPG's, i'm playing Mass Effect right now, and it's awesome.. Fable 2 looks really good too... but we'll just have to wait and see about that one. see ya!! :)
Hopefully the same is done with Perfect Dark.
This game would certainly be better if it was powered by PLAYSTATION®3 hardware. $niper
Too bad that isn't going to happen! :)
how would it be better if they play the same. Retard...
Or it's just set to a new resolution.... Cool thing about the Emulator 1964 (n64 emulator) allows you to import highresolution textures...which is awesome. But in the end they still play the same ( and thats a good thing =) )
RIPTOR!!!!! :D :D
ORICHIDDD!!1! :d xD
UUULLLTRRRAAAA!!!!!!! UUULLLTRRRAAAA!!!!!!! UUULLLTRRRAAAA!!!!!!!
I have Killer Instinct 1 on SNES but I never really got into it as much as I did with Killer Instinct Gold.
