Recently, Microsoft pushed out an Xbox One port of Killer Instinct 1 as part of the new season for the latest Killer Instinct game on the console, and now they are putting a little bit of love into it to pay homage to all those that played the original Killer Instinct on the Super Nintendo.
In a new patch, that has recently gone live, Killer Instinct 1 now has online multiplayer capabilities, and players can jump in game to play against other players from across the world. As well as the new online features, Microsoft added a few new changes to Killer Instinct 1, all of which can be read in the patch notes below.
- We updated the front page of Ultra-combo.com. If you scroll down to the Season 1 Changelist, you can now see an image of the Story Mode Mural!
- Riptor's correct Ultra Music is not playing because of a bug. We're trying to fix that via patch before the next Content Update.
- When you unlock a Story Mode XP bonus, that XP is Player XP only (not Character XP also).
- There is a known issue with Story Mode XP sometimes unlocking, but not depositing. We're investigating a fix for that as well.
These new changes to Killer Instinct 1 come hand in hand with the recent announcement of the reintroduction of Riptor to the latest Killer Instinct game in season 2. Riptor is a part human part velociraptor, who made his first appearance in Killer Instinct 1.
