Killer Instinct Team Mark Mortal Kombat X Launch

In a move that is sure to get many fans talking: the Killer Instinct team has sent well wishes to Ed Boon & NetherRealm Studios for their official launch of Mortal Kombat X!


"To @noobde & @netherrealm, have a KILLER Launch!
Love, The #KillerInstinct team.
" - @TheMikeRobles

Before anyone gets too carried away -- the message delivered via Microsoft's Community Manager is much more of a Friendship than a challenge to fight to the death.

Despite Killer Instinct's "MK killer" status in the early nineties, the series has been a cult shadow to Mortal Kombat, dormant since its 1997 Nintendo 64 sequel port, until resurrection as a 2013 Xbox One exclusive. KI's aesthetics and violence paid obvious homage to Mortal Kombat, while appropriating ideas from other fighting game influences, such as Street Fighter.

While Street Fighter has long been seen as the "inevitable" opponent for a future Mortal Kombat crossover, the trans-pacific divide has rarely been crossed [read more], making Killer Instinct's Chicago ties an argument for a franchise face-off.

Reminds me of when PS4 and Xbox wished each other a successful launch. I like that sort of thing. Civility among rivals.

Honestly makes me smile seeing comradery between two fighting game developers.

That is pretty cool, honestly.

Though I can't help but think how a lot of Street Fighter fans (not devs, fans) always seem to trash talk other fighting games on video game boards instead of talking about their own. Not all of them, but I see it a lot. It's like the existence of other fighting games bothers them.

Just saying

Very cool.

As for crossovers, MK vs KI is more likely than anything else because the 2 are more similar in art style and violence level. I think people would prefer to see MK vs SF, but I don't see Ed Boon wanting to dumb down MK after MK vs DC and I don't see Capcom allowing Fatalities to it's characters.

Also, reading the linked forum stuff, I read somewhere they were basing the sales and receoption of SF X Tekken to determine other crossovers. MK vs SF has infinitely more appealing than SF X Tekken.

If a crossover game were to happen, it would have to be an Xbox exclusive since KI is the property of Microsoft.

MK Vs Killer Instinct

Dont know how to feel about this TBH but phil spencer says it would be a cool idea https://twitter.com/XboxP3/status/589929968328552448?s=08. Would you want a Ki vs MK game.

I've been all for this idea since I was aware both games existed. Like buddy above me point out though, it would be difficult as KI is owned by Microsoft.

Killer Instinct is amazing and the reason I bought an Xbox One in 2013. It's crazy to have MK and KI icons together on my dashboard.

MK vs. KI would be great but probably will not happen. Unless Microsoft worked something out with WB and NRS.

Is it impossible for Microsoft or whoever to sign a deal to allow MKVSKI be on PS4 too? Or is that something that would just never happen no matter what?

Yes! Yes! Yes!. I also been waiting for this since the beginning.

FUCK Capcom vs. Whoever. MK vs. KI needs to happen. And it must have fatalities

See the problem with that is that it's a monatery issue. Basically it would give PS free money and Microsoft doesn't really want to aid the "enemy" or help them gain money, especially if more people buy it for the PS.

They should make a contract saying Microsoft (Or whoever owns KI) gets a certain percentage of each game sold, even PS4 versions.

That way Microsoft would still get a cut of the dough no matter what version sells better and the PS guys still get to enjoy it :)

RE: MK Vs Killer Instinct

For me, it's a yes and no.

Yes because MK would mesh very well with KI and it would be very interesting to see how they translate the mechanics from each game. Plus seeing MK characters doing an Ultra Combo would be insane.

No because I never want to see MK go exclusive to any one platform. I would not support that at all. And since there's no way in hell Microsoft would let Playstation have a piece of that crossover, I can't in all good conscience support it.

I think it is more likely an MK character like Scorpion or Sub-Zero will appear in KI.

RE: MK Vs Killer Instinct

Is it just me or has anyone else seen the competition between MK & KI the same way people see the competition between SF & KOF.

Only difference is one rivalry is American and the other one isn't lol.

As for my opinion I would be down for it but because of Microsoft exclusive-ness that has KI kinda on lock down I don't know if Boon even see's a point anymore unless something was worked out.
