A new Rare scribe was posted today, and the company pretty much brought the hammer down on the rumor mongers. Rare revealed that they are not working on a new Jet Force Gemini or Mr. Pants game, but more importantly, Rare put the kaibosh on the Killer Instinct 3 rumor mill. Sorry KI fans, the denial sounds genuine.

"Purely out of contractual obligation, no, we're not working on KI3..."

I can't say that I was ever a huge killer instinct fan... but sorry to hear that for all that were hoping for it.

That sucks. :(

I always thought KI was one of the more original and fun fighters back in its day. The characters were pretty awesome...haven't seen another fighter yet with a Raptor and a Werewolf as playable characters.

At least they didn't nix the possibility of a new Conker. :drunk

ah, this does suck. I used to think Killer Instinct was awesome.

Well here's to a hopeful LIVE Arcade release of the original! :drunk

Damn, I remember the good old days of, sitting in my living room, or my friends living room, playing KI. Good times, sad to hear this.

Brother in law works for Rare but is always very discreet in what's going on, all I get at the moment are a few bits n dribbles about Banjo 3.

I am not sure i would have even bought it

I liked the massive combos you could pull of in KI. Hopefully some of the older titles will slip onto xbla.

Rare needs to just make more games, they take FOREVER to relelase titles.

OK, so there's no Killer Instinct 3 in the works. So, how about some Killer Instinct 1, 2, or Gold on XBLA?

08-05-2007, 03:19 PM

Just release KI1 and KI2 on the XBLA already Rare.... ULTRA COMBO FTW!!!!!!!!

I don't believe my eyes. KI was a great game, how could RARE say no?

Microsoft owns them now.

They have plenty of adult-oriented games on their platform, but they lack quality family appropriate titles. Rare's exceptionally good at making kids games that can appeal to adults as well, and hence Rare's been designated their developer for those types of games. That's why Rare's only got one adult game out on the 360, and that's Perfect Dark Zero. Kameo, Viva Pinata and its sequel, and Banjo-Kazooie 3 which I think sucks ass personally. Nothing appealing at all to me about a friggin bear with a bird in his backpack.

It sucks, cause Rare's mature franchises are excellent, but it's all business. I'd kill to see a brand new Conker, but I doubt it'll happen. I just wish they'd come out with a sequel to Kameo or a REAL sequel to Viva Pinata (i.e. not a ripoff of Mario Party) if they're gonna stick with the kids games. Kameo and Viva Pinata were awesome.

Seems Rare might be changing their mind. Look at the Holiday card that was sent out by Rare. Notice the KI3 on the stocking?

"Purely out of contractual obligation, no, we're not working on KI3..."
So that quote doesn't mean anything really. They could be working on one but can't say so, or remaking an older KI, thus not being able to talk about it.

considering banjo kazooie 3 can't even get released is this a shock to anyone
