Killer Instinct is a 'frontline game', not a 'cash in', says Microsoft

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Killer Instinct is a 'frontline game', not a 'cash in', says Microsoft

If it was frontline it would be a complete game on retail. Digital only release with only a couple of characters will not help it on the fighting game scene. Its as good as dead on arrival.
Nice nugget otherwise though.

Killer Instinct will never be a frontline game but bring it back is much appreciated MS...just wish Rare was moreso behind it than Double Helix.


You want Kinect:The Fighting Game? I defenitely wouldnt want RARE working on the game

Its a Rare game, dude. You're a Nintendo fan...do the math. Just because MS ruined Rare it doesn't mean they cannot contact old devs.

The old devs don't want anything to do with the new Rare.

Is the game going to be digital only?

Digital and physical. The digital copy will have a payment method where you can either buy the full game or buy each character.

Okay, that's good. I thought it was going to be digital only, but now that I know they're going to make a physical release, I might actually get it when I get an XBox One.

Most of them are doing their own thing. I know some of them have been in the Kickstarter scene for the most part, and the rest are scattered between different companies.
