What does a company that made a flash game know about making real games? I'm worried.

No this is pretty rad.

This was probably the big announcement that Johnny was drunkenly alluding to during the GDC stream.

Sounds cool! Don't have an Xbox One but what I have played of Killer Instinct was surprisingly enjoyable.

I'm not a huge fan of fighting games but the crazy in-depth training system in KI got me further into the genre. Frankly, based on DoubleHelix's track record I think most people were surprised how good KI was.

This is good news both for Iron Galaxy, and for KI fans. The series sounds like it's in good hands. Freakishly huge ogre hands.

Welp, guess Killer Instinct is going to only use two buttons from here on out.

#7 Posted by Jesus_Phish (1517 posts) -

@arbitrarywater: This is where it goes full minimalist and uses one button.

Ha, I half-jokingly suggested Iron Galaxy as suitable replacement when they were first acquired by Amazon, weird to see it actually come to pass. I have a lot of faith in them, though.

Congrats to Iron Galaxy.

April 9th! Get Hype!!

KI enters the Lang-zone... we all win!

Man Fulgore looks amazing!!!! Good to see there is a bright future ahead for this game. I expect that when I get an X1 the roster will be around 10+, so I can't wait.

Mr. N crossover character for Killer Instinct please. Also PC port.

Seriously though this is good news, glad Microsoft found someone suitable to take over.

#17 Edited by ViciousBearMauling (1434 posts) -

This is pretty cool!

Except the cynical dickhead side of me is worried that we'll see less amazing re-releases of classic fighting games...

#18 Posted by ottoman673 (736 posts) -

Pretty sure the article outlines that Double Helix finished out Season 1 and Fulgore is their baby, but regardless, I suppose I will NEVER escape the Lang Zone now.

This is actually really great news. Good for Iron Galaxy and Dave! In the WHAT'S NEXT? section of that article, I was really hoping for a Windjammers mention... but as we already know:

#20 Posted by onyxghost (336 posts) -

Dave mother effin Lang! Let's see some crazy GD Killer Instinct!

#21 Edited by cmblasko (1450 posts) -

That's great news! Couldn't think of a better developer for KI.

#22 Edited by BigJeffrey (4897 posts) -

Great pick to continue Killer Instinct, they get the wackiness over the top that is that is Killer Instinct.

#23 Posted by Wikitoups (976 posts) -

Also I expect that Dave Lang is now the match vo yelling CCCCOMBO BRREEAAAKKKEEERRR

#24 Posted by freakin9 (1177 posts) -

Get Ed Boon on the phone Lang and lets do MK vs. KI already.

Sweet. Too bad I'm probably a half decade out from having an XB1 .. :S

#28 Posted by Vuud (2054 posts) -

GROSS! Dave Lang has his chubby fingers in a lot of pies.

Well it's good to see him finally branch out from Facebook games.

#29 Posted by Fram (887 posts) -

Great news, nothing but respect for Mr Lang and his ever-expanding Zone.

I don't give a shit about fighting games but I feel like this needs to happen.

Fulgore is Godlike. This checks out.

#36 Posted by crithon (3512 posts) -

WOW! That the best announcement I have ever heard.

#37 Edited by FinalDasa (2311 posts) -

I guess that was the big announcement Johnny was hoping Dave would announce.

Granted it set up the most hilarious moment possible.

Awesome for Lang and all those duders at Iron Galaxy, they're straight killing it.
