E3 Game Preview: Killer Instinct

Posted: Updated:

Are you a fan of old school fighting games like Street Fighter, King of Fighters, Primal Rage  and Mortal Combat? How about real old school? Say, a game from 18 years back called Killer Instinct? Well, it's back, better than ever and ready to punch it's way into the hearts of a whole new generation of gamers.

First released in 1994, Killer Instinct was developed by Rare and published by Midway and Nintendo. Back then, the only place you could play the game was this thing called an Arcade. Yeah, I know. Some of you reading this have only heard about those places in books and the nostalgic ramblings of your aging gamer parents, but I assure you... the game was awesome! It eventually made its way on to the Super Nintendo and Game Boy. Many of the characters remain the same, but a lot has changed now that Rare has relaunched the title exclusively for the Xbox One. During Microsoft's E3 2013 announcement the game was the game was shown with Jago, Glacius and Sabrewulf (my personal favorite) ripping it up to the delight of many in attendance. Want more details about the game? Be sure to check out the video above!

No release date for the game yet as it will be launching with the Xbox One which also has no release date other than November. The game will be free and come with Jago, but if you want to be able tof fight as Sabrewulf or any of the other characters, you'll have to pay. You can buy new characters individually or by the bunch for less. Pick up a few and get you c-c-c-c-COMBO BREAKER!!!! on.
