So Wait, Is Killer Instinct 3 Coming Out Or Not?
In a recent article from 1up.com, EGMís surreptitious scuttlebutt scavenger, Quartermann, seems to have uncovered news that Rare is hard at work on a new Killer Instinct game goofily titled, Killer Instinct 3D: Death, Destruction, and Doom. For an immense fan of the series like me, this couldnít be better news. Well, it actually could be better newsóSilicon Knights could announce that they were hard at work on Eternal Darkness 2: Even Darkeróbut I guess beggars canít be choosy, and Iíve definitely been begging for a KI sequel for like, ever, now.
Little is known about the game, or even if the game actually exists, but if Quartermann says itís true, then Iím going to have to choose to believe it. More often than not, that mysterious mole seems to be right on the money with his rumors, so Iíll take it as fact for the time being. Until, that is, Rare breaks my heart again and says that Banjo-Kazooie is full steam ahead, while Killer Instinct is just a KI fanís pipe dream.
But what a pipe dream that would be, right? Memories of Jago, Fulgore, and TJ Combo are already making my fingers and wrists pantomime incidents in the arcade where a greasy joystick and busted buttons were the only things I was touching. Seriously, what the hell has Rare been doing all this time that warrants them not making a sequel for this game already?
We shall soon see if the Xbox360 produces another hit with the KI name attached to it. In the meantime, though, would it be too much to ask to see either the original KI or the slightly lacking KI2 on X-Box 360ís live arcade? Itís been too long since Iíve heard a well deserved, ULTRA, ULTra, UltraÖringing in my eardrums on a hot summer day.
