The folks over at Rare FanDaBase recently had an opportunity to sit down with a few of the developers at Double Helix Games to discuss their upcoming Xbox One title Killer Instinct. While some of the information is reiterated from earlier reports (its status as an Xbox One launch title, different editions), their time with the developers also produced new information regarding returning characters, the direction the team wants to follow in creating new cast members, and their development process.
Killer Instinct’s reveal trailer announced that series veterans Jago, Sabrewulf, and Glacius will be making appearances in the game, but Double Helix doesn’t plan to stop there. The cast will also include returning fighters Fulgore, Spinal, and Cinder, along with a host of new characters created specifically for this title. They are also looking to include more female characters this time around, something the franchise’s earlier entries lacked outside of Black Orchid in the original and sequel additions Kim and Maya.
It was also reported that Double Helix is working very closely with Rare and original game designer Ken Lobb as well as members of the fighting game community.
