    Might be too early for this yet, but decided to make a thread for discussing the game as more characters and moves are being revealed to us.

    From girls revealed so far there is at least Sadira and B. Orchid


    Me thinks Orchid's new look is not bad, but I liked her older look in KI2 more. Wondering if she has that outfit as extra or dlc... mmm

    One of Deviantart's premiere ryona artists has started a KI project funded by fan donations. Here's a teaser he dropped about a month ago.

    From what I've been reading the new Killer Instinct won't have No Mercy's (Fatalities) to please the FGC crowd. The devs claim they will add them if there's "enough fan support" though honestly it seems like they're just saying that to drum up more buyers. Until they actually confirm No Mercy's are included my interest in the game is nil.

    Finally Orchid video:


    Also personally I don't care too much if the game does not have fatalities, if it has otherwise nice ryona :)

    According to a recent interview the Devs have been a little more forthcoming about the possibility of No Mercies and stage fatalities being included in future updates.

    My interest has been rekindled. I'm hoping they implement these features in the Second Season wave of characters.

    That's some good news. Hopefully the finishers come out pretty cool.

    I want to see how Orchid's voice actress does for the damage and KO sounds, though. The original KI Orchid VA did a great job with the blood curdling screams, lol. I guess we will see.

    The fatalities were probably taken out because this game is borrowing heavy from Street Fighter where the original borrowed from MK. >.>

    I'd say yes Frig if I know KI never interested me much(though MK was bad and this was a clone of MK that was better then MK) so other then Orchid I don't remember the characters(I knoe one was a bland werewolf and another a skeleton.)

    I just find it amusing how obvious this is borrowing form SF4(even the gauges)

    Personally I don't care what the game borrows from SF4, as long as it still plays like Killer Instinct and not Ultra S*** Fighter 4 I'm happy. Lets face it. SF has the largest community in fighting game history. Proof: EVO. The removal of No Mercies was a bad idea. I don't understand that. Killer Instinct's whole STYLE is no mercy. Come on... Those combos are infuriating to be hit by haha.

    Also the character customization is supposed to be pretty good, so for ryona fans, you can expect to see that implemented in some videos as well as Orchids classic costume.

    Just found a nice clip of Thunder throwing Sadira and then stomping on her face while she's down, very nice. The clip is at 6:26 - 6:31

    Yeah I'm surprised, but I guess there isn't anyone thats willing to shell out a couple hundred bucks to make ryona vids yet.

    Stolen from a youtube vid - the way Orchid lies when she's down is pretty hot.

    The game also includes the classic 'shows character getting up after collapsing when the first lifebar runs out' feature, which I adore. Love seeing her jump back to her feet after looking seemingly unconscious, so TOUGH.

    So I did buy a Xbox One on launch day, and of course, I bought the Ultra Edition of this. It's sorely lacking content, but it's a well-refined fighter. It's a worthy evolution to the combo-heavy formula of the originals.

    I'm sure some of you remember (way back when I used to post here more often) that Orchid is one of my favorite ryona gals. I still prefer her in the original arcade title, but she is pretty hot here. Her lying on the ground pose is pretty hot, which is something her original wasn't, admittedly. It's tough to get stills of her poses because the pause screen applies a menu and a gray filter over everything that ruins it. I'm glad her classic costume is coming back, but it's not correct and looks totally out-of-place. Her boots need to be below her knees if they want to make it her KI1 look, because as it is now, it's a fusion of KI1 and 2, which I'm not terribly fond of.

    Yeaaaa, I was soooo sad that they didn't seem to have good ryona in this game. Too bad, 'cuz I really like the new designs in a lotta ways.
    Mainly I'm sad 'cuz there's no dizzy animations. With the moaning n' stuff? That with Orchid in KI 1 was my first ryona experience.
    And now it's gone with this new one. No Game Over pose, no dizzy, no 'finish her', nothin' like that.
    Looks like a good fighter, tho! That is...technically more improtant. ;D

    Buuuut yea.
    Reminds me o Street Fighter x Tekken, same thing there. All the ladies had pretty much the same laid down poses, no stuns...blehhh.
    Ah, well. Maybe next year we'll get some new fighters. At least Tekken 7 is comin'. Might not have lotta new anims but it'll be pretty in HD like this game is.
