    I don’t quite understand how this looks any different than 360 grafix.

    • Mecha_the_Hedgehog

      Type in Guilty Gear Xrd at Youtube now that’s what a next gen fighter should look like.

  • Well, at least they got the over-the-top combos down. Everything else is lacking.

    • Yeah, gotta admit that..

      That and the sound/music direction. Dat system voice! lol

      But…. XBone…. :( One game I’m only interested in certainly isn’t enough for get this console, especially over a PS4 now. And yeah, everything else… I’m not really liking the graphical style, especially… and somehow i doubt the over all gameplay and mechanics will be able to compete with other top fighting games today (I only slightly trust Double Helix to do a better job than the withered corpse of what we knew to be Rare).

  • Carabutifarra

    Ugly and orthopedic like Mortal Kombat or Injustice.

  • Silver Citizen

    Where are the ladies?!

  • Dave_O_Segundo

    Oh God, Double Helix? Geez… the Homecoming/Battleship guys, way to make me feel less hyped.

  • Strid

    Favorite fighting game ever — that said, I’m not buying an Xbox 1if it’d save the world from certain doom [things as they are now].

  • Tee Niitris

    Seeing the trailer and comparing it to the classics, it certainly doesn’t give off the same vibe.

    Combos in the older games were faster and didn’t have that long hitpause seen in more current fighters. I know why the long hitpause exists, but it just dampers what Killer instinct was about. This video explains what I’m trying to say.

    Graphically, it looks like a re-skin of SF4 or MK9; nothing that hasn’t been seen before (the original KI, in comparison, looked like a next gereration game). Considering that this is supposed to be a next-gen fighter, that’s disappointing (especially disappointing as I’m a big fan of KI and wanting to see this day for years). I know the game is in an early state and things can change, but I’m not feeling this re-birth.

    i want to see orchid!!! now :C!!!

    • And Maya, and Kim Wu… :3

      But.. with this graphical style… I mean, Jago looks like some random thug that you’d find in one of those old Arcade rail shooters using digitized graphics… one of those random dudes that hid behind barrels of toxic waste :/ lol… first Chun-li (and everyone else) in SF4 getting “claymated”, now Orchid…

      I wonder if they’ll bring back Cinder. though, he was my favorite from KI1 besides Orchid.

    this is the worst tragedy in the world one of the greatest fighting game comes out on the shit box 1 how shit this year became sad in 0:47 that’s really really sad i hope this comes to ps4 i don’t care if rare is a part of micro$oft this is heart breaking

    • Damarius Wingfield

      We’re cursing now?

  • Theofratus ‘Geese’ Lester

    Was I lookin’ at a new Super Street Fighter IV game or Killer Instinct? ‘Cause I could’ve sworn that Killer Instinct looks just like SSFIV for a bit…

  • TrannyMagic

    I’m going to get an xbox one solely for this game… I’ve waited too long to NOT get this just because it’s an ‘Xbone’ exclusive ( ~__~) (ugh @ xBone, harr harr, derp) I did the same with xbox and the 360 just for DOA :// and even if I suffer for choosing this path I’m a bit maso. so I should be fine. No regrets. I’m excited.

    • Same case with me. I think I’ll cave in too eventually :( but I’m gonna wait to see if this even does turn out worthy of the KI name first. I’m really picky, I mean, I refuse to play SF4 or any newer SFs since that disappointed me. Even if it does turn out awesome, though, I think I’ll wait till an XBone price drop way down the line.. (but with this backlash maybe that day will come sooner than I’d expect… lol).

      I bought an Xbox and Xbox 360 solely for the DOA series as well :O although 4 years after 360’s release… XD lol

  • Go2hell66

    So i hear there is only one free character? that means the entire game is DLC, that makes there DLC practices even worse than capcom…

  • artemisthemp

    So I am been told this is F2P and will only come with 1 Figure.
    Tecmo Koei manage to deliver 4 Character for their DoA5+ Demo for Vita, but then again it is for Xbox ONE
