Killer Instinct is getting a reboot on Xbox One, courtesy of Double Helix Games . Good news: it’s free-to-play. Potential bad news: you have to pay for every character, except Jago.

Destructoid confirmed in this Killer Instinct preview, that while the fighter is free to all, you have to pay individually for new and returning characters. That’s a payment per character, but the specific cost has not been confirmed, so don’t start worrying just yet, as they could be dirt cheap.

Characters have two life bars just like in the original games, and big combos and Combo-Breakers are back. The game’s out at the Xbox One launch.

I know that fighting games should never be exclusive at this point, and any console that has Tekken as an exclusive, has the advantage of having the most popular fighting game franchise worldwide.

There's just something about all your posts that amuses me. Maybe it's how "OMG" is included somewhere in there...maybe it's drama...maybe it's the baby mario avatar...maybe it's everything. You posts never fails to make me chuckle. :lol:

That's because it's a digital game. Not many XBLA/PSN games look like current gen games either.

thanks.

I said Microsoft are like jews not Jews as people. I used jews as an adjective which means very cheap and greedy person. That was the joke, Read correctly. That just shows that you jumped to conclusions and threw your stereotypical ideas in over analyzing and interpretation of my post in that thread.

And please stop bringing personal and unrelated things up. How long will you be angry and when will you quit misrepresenting? Have you not learned from your dramatic and embarrassing respond before on the matter?


I checked this thread to make a joke about the topic but now thanks to you i completely forgot about it. Another decent joke ruined. thanks a lot! Bully!!

I can only assume there's some sort of miscommunication going on here.

I think it's better just to let it slide. I think most people tried to ignore his other comment in the other thread because it was rather arkward/stupid

I think at some point Microsoft is going to release a compilation of Killer Instinct on disc with every character in the game, and charges you $40.

You can pay for individual characters or just pay full price for the whole game.

I don't know if it's been mentioned in the thread yet but this game isn't actually being developed by Rare. The developer is Double Helix (Front Mission Evolved/Silent Hill: Homecoming)

even if it was rare, not sure of that would still be a good thing
