Killer Instinct Classic features two different versions of the arcade ROM

killerinstinctclassic
Microsoft has announced that Killer Instinct Classic, the Xbox One port of the original Killer Instinct which is only available as a bonus with the new Killer Instinct game, will feature two different versions of the popular arcade fighter.

One version is the 1.4 release, apparently the original arcade release, warts and all. The other version is the updated 1.5D release, which fixes a number of exploits and addressed a few balance issues. Killer Instinct Classic will also include a training mode, a CRT filter and an art gallery.

Killer Instinct Classic will be out alongside the new Killer Instinct and the Xbox One next Friday.

Video Game Ad of the Day: Killer Instinct (Game Boy)

Killer Instinct GB
Killer Instinct did indeed make its way to the Game Boy, not long after it hit the SNES. It loses Cynder and Riptor, but you can play two player head-to-head if you run it on a Super Game Boy, which is pretty neat.

Killer Instinct returns on Xbox One

Rare’s visually groundbreaking fighting game series Killer Instinct will be returning later this year on the Xbox One.

Development duties have shifted from Britain to America with Double Helix leading production efforts on the title.

Little has been confirmed at this stage beyond the inclusion of Jago, Sabrewulf, Glacius and a 2013 release date.

Video Game Ad of the Day: Killer Instinct


Killer Instinct was one of the most stunning looking arcade games upon release in 1994, and the fact Rare managed to get it running on the SNES is a testament to the skill of the company at that stage. It’s a shame the underlying game just isn’t that good – though it’s way better than its sequel.

Video Game Ad of the Day: Killer Instinct

There’s something I don’t like about Nintendo of America’s mid 90s advertising, but I can’t pinpoint it.

Killer Instinct was a fighting game developed by Rare for the arcade and Super Nintendo Entertainment System. The arcade cabinet famously claimed that it was running the same hardware as the upcoming Ultra 64 console, which was proved to be false. The SNES version of the game is a pretty huge technical achievement, but in reality, the underlying game is not particularly memorable when the graphics are stripped away. This ad is for the SNES release.
