Fans of the original Killer Instinct will recall that the game’s soundtrack was so good that it saw its own CD release, Killer Cuts, during an age where video game soundtracks didn’t usually get this kind of treatment. Rare would go on to provide a similar compilation for the title’s sequel. Now, it seems like the soundtrack for the rebooted Killer Instinct on Xbox One is going to get the same treatment.
In a surprise announcement via the chat on Maximilian’s Twitch channel, composer Mick Gordon has stated that a new Killer Cuts album for KI is coming by the end of March. This was further confirmed on Twitter when Gordon replied to a tweet asking about the news.
