The lights are on
Microsoft and Double Helix have teased Spinal for its next-gen fighter, Killer Instinct, in a new trailer, which shows the previously teased Orchid in action.
You will see Orchid (who no longer uses the "B." in front of her name) breaking Jago's face and turning into a tiger, among other impressive moves. The end of the trailer also reveals that Spinal will be joining the cast of fighters.
Killer Instinct will release alongside the Xbox One as a downloadable title on November 22. There will be a sort-of retail version of the game with Pin Ultimate Edition, but there are no plans to release a disc version of the game. For more on Killer Instinct, check out our interview with Torin Rettig, where he talks about how the cloud will help balance Killer Instinct without downloadable patches.

It will be interesting to see what shape the game is in this time next year. Especially only being a $40.00 game and the possibility to add new characters and stages/features as time goes on is great. Practically no reason to make a "sequel" for a long time to come.
If this ever does come to 360, I'd give it a whirl. I love the older KI's. Played the first one in the arcades back in the day.
Just for the sake of Killer Instinct, I hope this game turns out well. Loved the one on SNES.
I don't know what it is but none of these character models are hitting the right marks for me... Maybe I'm just so used to KI for SNES/Genesis.
