Anyone remember Killer Instinct. I used to love this game when I worked in the arcades. I used to play saberwolf with one hand and mess up people.

I have an emulator and still mess around with it, but it’s not the same.

Anyone knows if there is any way to play online against people. I’d love to get into this again lol

    Me and my cousin would stay up all night playing this. Cinder was that nigga though, and we couldn't get over the fact that Orchid's breasts were sharper than her weapons.

    Didn't RARE tease a new KI3 a long while ago?

    I used to play KI2 more than KI1 but they're both awesome games. Fav characters here were glacius and sabrewulf :]

    Would be great if they made a 3rd on the current gen consoles.

    I'm quite glad to see that there's still fans of this game out there... this was my favorite fighter when I was a kid. The music, the combo system and the announcer were just so fucking hype --- I would sneak out night while everyone was asleep just to play it, as an attempt to get better at it than my cousins haha. It's the game that gave me love for fighters. I've been having Killer Instinct nostalgia lately, most eager to see it make its return at some point.

    Hopefully the desire of seeing a new iteratin of this title won't remain a wish. I would really like to play as Jago, Glacius and Spinal again.

    Yeah, KI2 got so much play in my neighborhood. Kim Wu was my girl man. Nothing gave me more satisfaction than a well earned combo breaker just cuz it screamed that shit so everyone around the cabinet knew it.

    It came out somewhere that they started some work on Killer Instinct 3 right after Killer Instinct 2, but I guess it got shelved for whatever reason. Rare never confirms or denies plans to release a KI3, meaning they have been busting my balls for literally 15 years.

    If you follow the @RareLtd twitter, it still gets mentioned from time to time. And the guy who writes mosts updates and does the web stuff was also the guy that wrote the story for KI (and pretty much all of Rare's games and in-game text).

    Rare was bought by microsoft i read a few years back trying to find if Killer instinct would ever make it to xboxlive arcade or psn..they now make avatar hats and shoes and kinetic games ..it would be nice if they outsources the KI license to someone, but if Microsofts there over lord, i dont see them giving a shit...

    I must say, I'm so glad to find KI fans on this forum! :'D

    Killer Instinct is a... major part of my childhood, actually. It was my second fighting game (after SFII Turbo), and my Dad was really into it. Gosh, I was such a button masher back then, too. I was only about five or six, though; I couldn't have expected to be able to use Jago's fireball if I couldn't use Ryu's. All I could to was Orchid's flik-flak~ My Pop used to wipe the floor with me (or knock me off the stage at any given opportunity). Good times.

    It's kinda hard to believe I recently beat KI: Gold on Hard. All that progress from being a button masher to actually beating the game on a difficulty even my FG-loving father couldn't beat it on is a nice feeling. Also, being able to give Papa a taste of his own medicine is nice, too.

    I really hope RARE sells the rights to a good studio and we get a multiplatform KI3. I would love to see Cinder, Jago, Glacius, B. Orchid in glorious Hi Def Next Gen graphics running at 60 FPS!

    I really love KI in all it's broken glory, I wish a community would band together on Kaillera or Sweet-Talking damdai into finding a game writer to help him port games like KI and Mortal Kombat to supercade.

    I mean they can release some random doujin fighter on xbox 360 for $40 that no one hardly has heard of but no KI3??? With all the new fighting games that have come out in the past 3 years I don't see how this hasn't happened. Easy money maker too.

    There wouldn't be enough support alot of people loved the game but the competitive community knows what it boils down to in previous games and it starts to become less and less fun and more and more broken. If they could manage similar gameplay and balance the game so it's not so broken while keeping the same things that made us love it, It would be great but I don't see it happening tien.

    I think the biggest road block has been Rare and MS. I hope Netherrealms or some other studio buys the rights to KI.

    It's a mock up by a fan. It's not real. Kinda clear if you read the info on the video.

    Of course with the new game they would have to go back to the drawing board just like Netherrealms did when they redesigned MK9. Take the elements that work (the characters, special moves) and update things that don't (combo system, infinites, glitches).
    Although the market may be oversaturated right now, its probably a missed opportunity. The best time to put this game out would have been right after SF4 released, right at the peak of the FG resurgence.

    I'm keeping this dream alive no matter what seriously. At least this could be that xbox live arcade title idea. Cheaper to make and cheaper to buy.

    NO WAY if they make KI3 its gotta be huge AAA HD million dollar game with cutting edge graphics and the most amazing gameplay EVER. Preferably multi-platform.

    There is this program called mamehub that works like ggpo not as good honestly but its pretty damn good it has a huge list of games that you can play online with others which includes arcade,snes,genesis,gba,playstation,nes, etc. In terms of netcode its pretty good you can play some with minimal lag as well.

    Ki and Ki2 are still my favorite fighters , Kim Wu, Jago,Sabrewulf were the beast in the game. Overall all character were pretty balanced which makes it so much better, with the graphics it had no game at that time could beat it. Funnest part of the game is when your bored just glitch it and the game resets itself, or freeze time on Gargos for free unlimited play time.

    Killer Instinct Gold has been on my shopping list for a while.
    I never really got into the KI games, but the SNES game was fun, and I need motivation to build an N64 arcade stick. MKT just isn't enough.

    There was a bunch of news about KI3 this year. It's come to light that Rare's interest in making KI3 was denied by Microsoft when the purchased the studio.

    Then they attempted to renew the trademark, which made everyone flip out, and then it was denied.

    Who knows if Killer Instinct 1 or 2 will ever be released as XBL titles at this point
