New Combolicious Killer Instinct headed to Xbox 360. So says EGM

1 min read


According to an article in the upcoming July issue of EGM, the ninja spies that have infiltrated the Rare development studios are saying that they are indeed working on a new Killer Instinct game for Xbox 360.


The game seems to still be in its very early stages and from the looks of things, will be using the old 2D fighters in a 3D arena formula. If this all proves to be true we can all look forward to pulling some brand new zillion hit combos on our friends in glorious HD.

We can safely assume that if a sequel is in the works, we will be seeing a return of many or all of the original characters as well as a few new ones.

However, I do wonder about the fact that the characters will still be rendered in 2D, what with all that incredible wizardy in the graphics cards that’s able to render tight leather outfits in all three dimensions.

    Also it probably will be an Arcade game, and we won’t be able to download it :-(. But sheesh I can hardly remember any of the Killer Instincts characters we are talking about 12 years ago, Mortal Kombat dominated that time period and also much better fighters have come and gone. I wish they would bring Samurai Shodown to Live.

    Samurai Showdown brings back a lot of memories 🙂

  • They’re intimating that it’s going into 3D which should be interesting, I imagine it’ll be something like Naruto.

    I’ve been calmly playing Doa 4 since 2007 after calmly playing SC3 on Ps2 now I’ll be waiting for more info about KI and calmly wondering if it will come out before the 720 and if a next generation KI will come out for that system. By the time the 720 is here I hope I’d be not so calm waiting for Killer Instinct to come out. This sucks where are all the games? Guess what there’s a new programming type that uses speach and body movements. It’s called Microsoft, “It makes your body hardware.”. I’m a p.c..

    Orchid, Fulgor, Chief thunder, Cinder, Spinal, TJ combo, Glacius, Jago, Riptor, and Saberwolf, and Eydoll if you count him as playable. Hope they bring this awesome classic back
