KILLER INSTINCT - Sadira trailer - ORCHID TEASE

"More female characters" after launch. Kim Wu and (ugh) Maya I guess.

They said Orchid's retaining a lot of her acrobatics from the previous titles. No twerking, though. *cancels pre-order.*

Fightsticks will be available at launch. Shadow Jago is ONLY available for Day One Gold.

No DLC at launch, KI is on DH's new engine, extremely small team. The reason for the small roster is to have a completely unique roster with very little clones entering the game.

5.1 Surround Sound confirmed, reaching for 7.1
 
ORCHID!!! Sooooooo good!

Does anyone know if preordering the Day One 12 Month Xbox Live Gold with the free Killer Instinct and Shadow Jago include all of the alternate costumes and KI1 or do I still have to pay $20 or $40 for all of those extras?

I don't think they took the thin protective sticker off the stick's top panel. So it kinda makes the artwork look washed out. It looks much better in person.
 
It's been interesting during the last few streams hearing about what other fighting games they like or are inspired by. I get the impression that they look more towards SNK and Arc's games, well at least Adam does.

I would assume there would be a second design of the stick that has another 4 characters on it. Since only 1 and a half of the remaining 4 are revealed, not like they'll show THAT one yet...

Personally, I'd prefer an art design with one of the backgrounds of the game. They're a big part of the game, and need to be shown some respect too :)

Does the stick seem to come with it's own plexi-top and shield to make art customization easier? Or am I just misreading the thin plastic sheet's look?

Buttons look pretty nice, but I think purple-ish fits the nostalgic KI fan's color aesthetic more. And maybe gold.

Where are start and select? Side or Top?

Like everything else about it, personally:) Have heard about it having space to store extra buttons on the inside, sounds like a nice overall upgrade. Now just make it pre-dual-mod for current gen and next gen consoles out the box, and I'll love to have one! ;)

Can't be dual console compatible, sorry. I know everyone asks, but it's not possible to make an official product and have it work on other consoles.

Also for the TE2, yes it is easily one of the most customizable friendly arcade sticks on the market. Swapping out artwork is easier than ever with the TE2. We'll do a video and create a guide to show how it's done.

All I needed
 
So this was supposed to launch with 6 characters right ?

Jago, Sabrewulf, Glacius , Thunder, Sadira and Orchid looks to be the day 1 roster then.

The season 1 DLC stuff is pretty much only for 2 characters if I've read into things correctly and it could be anyone really- Spinal , Riptor, Cindor , Fulgore have all been at least hinted at , then there's the 3 KI2 characters- Maya, Tusk and Kim Wu.

My stance on this game remains - Looks pretty cool but I don't really want an xbox one for 500$ and I'd rather wait until the above roster is padded out with the entire KI1/2 cast plus a couple of new characters.

Not even between Xbox 360 and ONE? I understand not being able to do between competition surely, but it'd be nice to have a stick that was legitimately "past and future proof".

Great to hear about the rest, though! Won't be getting one at launch personally (just had to Dual Mod old stick for TFC, and that cost more than I'd have liked), but I look forward to getting one later on :)

Yeah, we tried that but we can't do it. :(
