Year Of Release: 1994
Genre: Fighting

Distinctly memorable for its impressive combo system and the satisfying rejoinders of the announcer when a successful combo was executed, or, interrupted, Killer Instinct was yet another welcome respite from the Street Fighter/Mortal Kombat queue. Killer Instinct stole fighting game hearts, and quarters, at the same time. With the recent announcemen of an updated Killer Instinct inbound for the Xbox One, expect a fresh spate of nostalgia for this fighter.
