16 Things You Might Not Know About Killer Instinct

Did you know Donkey Kong Country was instrumental in the development of Rare fighting game Killer Instinct, or that female fighter Orchid was once simply called "Wanda"? You do now, and there's more where that came from.

It's kind of uncanny, really. I was just flipping through my Xbox One games and decided to screw around in the new Killer Instinct's practice mode. It was the first time I've screwed with the game in ages. Then Did You Know Gaming shows up with this video. It's a conspiracy, I tell you.

Here's some of what they tell you.

    That should have been pretty obvious considering they both used the same tech.

      99.9% of people would have no idea they used the same tech

        I dunno, I wasn't tech savvy back then but I certainly noticed the graphic similarities between the two.

          Yep exactly this. You don't need to be a rocket scientist to look at the two games and see the similarities between them. Especially considering they were made by the same developer and released in the same year (SNES version of KI was a year later).

            Are you implying I'm not a rocket scientist?

              Uhhh...

              Ummm...

              Well...technically yes...but...if you ARE a rocket scientist, you're totally cool.

              Ummm...yes...that'll do...I think I got out of that one...Wait did I say that out loud?

    17. I wish I could play it on my PS4.
