I think the dude that made the trailer is the only guy at double helix or microsoft that played the game other than the one rare guy.

God this is bad and it looks nothing like KILLER INSTINCT  the only thing they did get right is the music a and it is the music from the old game so ya....  and everything else is wrong except for the particles that art style looks like ass it's not KILLER INSTINCT.


Do not want anymore.

Hmm...Rare is doing a good job of messing up their classic franchises.  First Perfect Dark and now Killer Instincts.  There are more things wrong than right with this new Killer Instincts.  First and foremost, this new look is horrible.  Why does the look of this game screams Street Fighter 4?  For an X-Box One title, I thought it would easily surpass most (if not all) currently released fighting games in the visual department, but I guess that is asking too much.  Killer Instincts had a  legacy of being visually superior than its contemporaries, but Rare isn't interested in legacies these days.  Secondly, the art design of each character has taken a dramatic change for the worst.  Why does Jago look like he belongs in Prince of Persia?  Thirdly, I would have thought that the animations in the longer combos wouldn't be so repetitive.  I mean, this is a X-Box One game, right?  And Finally, there doesn't seem to be anything innovative about this title.  I personally believe that the whole fighting genre needs something other than eye-candy and destructible environment, unfortunately, it doesn't seem like that is going to happen anytime soon.  Oh Rare,  your prized games are rare.

There is a free to play option where you get Jago or you can just buy the entire game.

Wow. So bad... This looks like Sega CD graphics. Is this Killer Instinct or Mansion of Hidden Souls? ;-)

Microsoft's just-announced Killer Instinct will be a free-to-play experience on the Xbox One, according to a preview of the game fromEurogamer.

The game will be available as a free download with fighter Jago, while players will need to pay for more characters. Pricing information was not divulged.


LOL.

Jago sucks anyways. I hated to half circle this half circle that to even start a chain. Don't get me wrong, I use all characters and still play the original Killer Instinct for the SNES and the sequal on the N64. I've mastered everyone in all fighting games. I just don't wanna pay for extra characters when I can purchase a disc I can keep forever. They should make a black disc like how the Original KI cartridge was black. That would be awesome. KI Gold had better graphics than this 2-D Street Fighter 4 look-a-like game. I guess we will all just have to wait and see hiw it plays. They better at least bring back the ones that never made it to Gold ie Cinder, Riptor and Thunder. Maybe even Eyedol. Gargos from Gold sucked as a boss. Just saying. I wonder what they have in store as the boss. It seems though these types of fighting games tend to lose their roots and have stupid bosses that have nothing to do with the story like they did in Tekken 6 having that over sized rainbow chicken Azazel. Then you can't even play as them either. At least you could in KI with Cinder at the loading screen or Gargos by pressing ZARZAB but I bet  this KI will feature an unplayable boss like most fighting games today.

Read the title and was STOKED!! Watched the video and didn't care anymore....   Killer was the game of my childhood... I remember going to this thing called the arcade and putting my quarter in line to play!!  Plus if it's only for X-Boo... Then I could care even less... Sucks! Shame I loved this game!

I thought about buying a Microsoft Box because of this one. But then I remembered I have to check in online in order to play it. And since I hardley connect with my PS3, I would rather go with a system that does not demand internet connection. Hell, even my computer does not demand internet connection. It will prove to be a horrible mistake for Microsoft.

I read that this will be a Day 1 Digital Only title with Jago being the only free to play character and you have to purchase the other fighters.  Has MS just gone completely mad or are they only foaming at the mouth?

WHAT THE FUCK DID THEY DO TO MY KILLER INSTINCT?

@FarginIcehole  They've lost touch with the gaming community. They would much rather nickle and dime us to death than actually listen to what we have to say.

@John_Aguilera it looks pretty true to the original...well part2, the video is short but everything from jago looks pretty stock so far,

@XenoNinja an amazon should have muscles, I disagree with the dainty look for a woman fighter, ie. DoA its goofy and juvenile, a real woman fighter should have muscles

@XenoNinja The new characters were all horrible but all the classic characters looked great Glacius was fine because he's an alien.

@FULGOREY2K They bent it over and raped it hard with graphics, crap character design, and a crappy announcer.

@travisstaggs I can see that.  I'm guessing it's just a matter of time before they charge you for combos, the ability to jump and access to all of the buttons in the game.  What a ridiculous piece of shit this is turning out to be!

@SauhlGood @John_Aguilera  Dude youre totally off, this game is in No way close to the original. Heck this game is a total ripoff, Check the other posts on KI, the original game looks 100 times better than this pos. Plus the character for Saberwolf is a total ripp off of a Capcoms Darkstalkers 3 John Talbain.

@SauhlGood @John_Aguilera Idk I just feel like his movements compared to the original are off. Especially his look. Looks nothing like Jago in the original and KI Gold. :/

@SauhlGood @XenoNinja well i agree a woman should have muscles, but her whole body was proportioned badly, and she had a big head.

@necronomicon_02 @Egotte @FarginIcehole You know...my remark was both literal and figurative.  You'll have ONE character to play as on the launch date, so you'll have to fight Jago against Jago (figurative) and most intelligent people won't fall for this "nickle and dime" scheme of game distribution when there are better options available, so good luck finding anyone to play against online...oh, and enjoy some energy drink or fighting dojo advertisements on your "game" system while you're waiting for that other Day 1 buyer to find you online!

@Egotte @FarginIcehole  Maybe your right "Millions of people have been waiting years for a new Killer Instinct"but Millions of people don't wan't XBox gONE.

@Egotte @FarginIcehole All the guys who made the original KI are long gone from Rare, don't get your hopes so high. I was a fan of KI, I was expecting a new one to come for long time but tbh this video isn't convincing. And it's pretty lame to buy a console just for 1 or 2 games. The Xbone awful features are enough to overweight any good thing that can come from a game itself
