C-C-C-COMBO BREAKER! Killer Instinct Trademark Renewed

Does anyone out there remember that arcade/Nintendo fighter with the robot, ninja, werewolf, skeleton and freaking raptor? If you’re saying no, then you missed out on a surprisingly technical fighter, and the origin of the COMBO BREAKER meme, Killer Instinct.


In any case, the Once-Rare-Now-Microsoft title has been renewed. What does this mean? Well, it could be as simple as the games coming to Xbox Live, or a HD pack that’s all the rage these days, or a brand new game using the IP.

Either way, I’m excited. I started playing fighting games with Killer Instinct, and back in the day, a store called Movie Time used to do cool promotions with points, the more you rent, the more points you get. My Dad and I acquired enough points to get the soundtrack for it (which was sly, as the Super Nintendo version came packaged with the soundtrack). I wore that bad boy out regardless.

    Never had a SNES (I was a pure Sega-boy) so never played this game. Heard a lot about it and seen all the screenshots though.
