Double Helix Games asking fans what characters they'd like to see in Killer Instinct Double Helix Games have opened a character poll on their official Facebook, where they are asking fans who they would like to see return for the new Killer Instinct.

What character would YOU like to see return for KILLER INSTINCT? We are leaving the poll sections open for postings and suggestions. Don't forget to share with your friends!

They have added quite a few characters including Fulgore, Cinder, B. Orchid, Spinal, T.J. Combo, Riptor, Thunder, an original female character and more. However they left it open so fans could add characters they would like to see in the list. Many that been added are troll characters such as Seth Killian and Crash Bandicoot.

Cast your vote by heading over to the poll.

Considering before this we had only two games in this series, having all the characters that appeared both games shouldn't be a problem, hell they can bring back the boss from the first game and then nerf him to be one of the playable characters, ya know without having to cheat the game.

Beat me to it, so instead I'm going with Sagat.

There should be NO votes for current cast characters. It should obviously be all of them. There's only a total of 15 characters, the game needs to add 8 new characters in my opinion plus two guest characters from Microsoft which would attract more fans. Making it to a total of 25 characters.

The guest characters should be a tribute to Master Chief and Marcus Fenix since they were a success and they would fit perfectly in the new Killer Instinct world. Probably not going to happen, but will be VERY awesome.

These are the old characters that ALL should get in. Well maybe not the bosses,but maybe they could be secret characters?

1 Black Orchid
2 Chief Thunder
3 Cinder
4 Eyedol (Boss Character)
5 Fulgore
6 Glacius
7 Jago
8 Riptor
9 Sabrewulf
10 Spinal
11 T.J. Combo
12 Gargos (Boss character)
13 Kim Wu
14 Maya
15 Tusk

It would be wise to include Uncle Sensei and Mr. N along with Sagat.

Maybe a character from Primal Rage? If licensing is possible, I'd love to see that.

Add in Cobra Commander, Kilowog, Jonathan Harker and/or Nosferatu to bring in some cool characters from games Double Helix has developed.

I would love to see what a new TJ Combo would look like in the next gen. I wouldn't mind a couple of new characters either.

Batmang said on June 17, 2013 at 5:41 p.m.

I'm more interested in seeing what original characters they can come up with. As long as they bring back Glacius and Spinal, I'll be happy.

Why do people keep asking for a PS4 port? Microsoft owns the KI license, so a PS4 port is NOT going to happen. PC would be a miracle.

Orchid. Also add parrying, non-silly ultimate combos, "ultra combo" announcer word instead of just 'ultra', and non-silly no mercies. Keep silly stuff out like humiliations. Have ultimates be cinematic when the death strike occurs. Keep the great partical showers from projectiles, they look great reguardless of what haters say. Add sabrewulf's metal arms back and give him different color underbelly fur (would look better). Give Spinal a complete overhaul. Make him look as epic as Scorpion from MK.

#33
shinra358 said on June 17, 2013 at 6:37 p.m.

also, add the specific motion to the dual button presses of the combo breakers.

Im sorry but the whole cast from the original game should be included, THAT SHOULD BE A F***ING GIVING PEOPLE!!!

@13

You are correct sir. Even at the exclusion of ANY new characters. No old character should be excluded. This bodes badly for the time they have left I'm assuming.

Hammer said on June 17, 2013 at 7:02 p.m.

Well technically "included" is a very strong word. I feel like that word should be replaced with available seeing as this is going to be pay to free. Yes your eyes did not deceive you I said pay to free.

LUTank said on June 17, 2013 at 7:09 p.m.

All originals and maybe a grappler? TJ Combo for sure though

Onislayer said on June 17, 2013 at 7:14 p.m.

Just please don't add Cinder

#46
Blitz36 said on June 17, 2013 at 7:16 p.m.

When the debut trailer for Killer Instinct releases... Get ready for the "Here comes a new challenger!" DLC shizz! And it's gonna be Ryu because y'know... Killer Instinct has become Street Fighter IV... Ughh I just ruined it.

#47
KaboomKid said on June 17, 2013 at 7:30 p.m.

Definitely all of the original characters should return. I'd be fine if they left out Eyedol and Gargos though, since those characters are supposed to be legit dead.

Most of all, I'd love to see Kim Wu redone. Even with the quirky design decisions they've shown off so far, just about anything they could do to her to make her more unique (without putting her in heels anyway) would be an upgrade.

A couple other ideas I've always liked for new characters:

->Thunder's brother Eagle (some sources claim he was one of the first Fulgores, so maybe he'd be a cyborg)
->Someone else from Jago's clan.
->A character directly affiliated with Ultratech, not just one of its experiments

#48
superray21 said on June 17, 2013 at 7:41 p.m.

Bad Box At Mega Man or Shaq. ...or maybe that jerk-o from Microsoft that said "we do have an offline system. It's called the xbox 360". he can be like taskmaster because he used the xbox one to spy on the other characters (who were conned into buying an xbox one for KI nostalgia) and learn their moves...

#49
darkblade13 said on June 17, 2013 at 7:43 p.m.

I agree that they shouldn't have a poll. They should just include all of them since the cast is kinda small in the first place.

#50
superray21 said on June 17, 2013 at 7:46 p.m.

...on a serious note, I do think they should include all the characters and add a new one, particularly one associated with Ultratech. As much as I loathe the new xbox, so far (and microsoft's apparent attitude towards some of the complaints), I know someone I know (or a friend of a friend)will buy it and I'm curious to try the new KI.

Kinimaster said on June 17, 2013 at 7:46 p.m.

Sagat and Undead Billy Eyedol :D

#54
gamekingcaleb94 said on June 17, 2013 at 7:56 p.m.

Simple, just put all of the characters in the game.

#55
PropLeXed said on June 17, 2013 at 8:01 p.m.

Umm considering how small the KI roster is and how this is meant to be "next gen" there's no reason why they should miss out any of the characters from previous games. If a current gen game like AE can fit 39 characters they better not exclude anyone.

#56
yes4me said on June 17, 2013 at 8:02 p.m.

Of course: Glascius, Fulgore, Cinder, B. Orchid, Spinal, T.J. Combo, Riptor.
I also like Scorpion, and Bayonetta.

I am not a fan of Thunder

#57
Smorgasboard said on June 17, 2013 at 8:07 p.m.

Put Sagat and Megaman in.

#58
shinra358 said on June 17, 2013 at 8:11 p.m.

What if Cinder's name was changed back to Meltdown?

#59
darkunor said on June 17, 2013 at 8:23 p.m.

Since it had a small cast... I suggest and hope that everyone from KI 1&2 in the new game. However, I couldn't care less about the new KI characters in part 2 and won't be bothered in anyway whatsoever if any of them didn't make it into this game. But definately everyone from KI 1 but I have a feeling chief thunder might not make it given the PC BS world we live in.

As long as they give me Orchid, Fulgore and Glacius which they've already announced I'll be happy! Oh..... and I also hope they don't go overkill with the female characters in terms of nudity like a certain soul calibur 4 did! When I feel like playing a video game I feel like playing a video game and not looking at naked women on my screen there is other material for that!!

GodPride said on June 17, 2013 at 8:24 p.m.

There weren't many characters to begin with..

What #2 said, Please! After that, release new characters.

#62
TheTHCGamer said on June 17, 2013 at 9:08 p.m.

Just be sure to add all the KI characters from previous KI games first and foremost. After that go ahead and add guest characters. It is a Microsoft exclusive so I wouldn't mind some master chief love.

#63
Darkdragon007 said on June 17, 2013 at 9:27 p.m.

Seriously they asked this question? All of them duh. Plus add in some new characters.

I would like to see Jago's wind kick back to it's original animation.I really don't like what they have now.

all of them of course and like 6 new characters

#73
Ultim87 said on June 18, 2013 at 12:21 a.m.

@72 I doubt the characters are finished seeing how the game's being rushed for the holidays, but they do want to see who'd make the most DLC $$$. Personally, my vote goes to "Maybe new Dev and definitely new IP owner like Retro or NRS or something."

I'd say all characters can be in, plus a few more, but since it's on XBone exclusively, I really don't care since the odds I will actually play it are slim to none.

#80
Ryose said on June 18, 2013 at 2:24 a.m.

This is BS. The game is coming out in november, how they can create, add, test and balance in this short time seems impossible. They're just creating artificial hype, probably all are close to done and will be implemented either as DLC or on disc.

I'm wondering if they are bold enough to add some new characters.

Smorgasboard said on June 18, 2013 at 10:29 a.m.

With the logic that some people are using here, developers will have to keep every character for each sequel plus create new ones. Also, they need to update the graphics, change the mechanics, balance the cast and code for every new engine while doing that. Really?

Do you really care about every character or you only care because they are not intended the latest iteration?

#89
badjab326 said on June 18, 2013 at 11:05 a.m.

@91 Tekken has done that multiple times. With T2, TTT1, T5, T6 and TTT2.

Honestly in every fg, there are fans of every character. To exclude characters is to isolate fans. Sure people want an enhanced story, but that's still not a good reason to exclude a character, it's not like EVERY character needs a story line.

And besides it's not like KI or KI2 had insanely large rosters. Altogether 15 characters, is easily doable for a starting roster. This is a NEXT GEN game, expecting anything less would be accepting sub-par efforts.

#90
MontoniBeatdown said on June 18, 2013 at 11:48 a.m.

they already ruined Saberwulf, i dont see a cartwheel, hand slaps and flip kick. or even the firebat he shot! and howl. might of as well just scrap the game.

#91
Smorgasboard said on June 18, 2013 at 12:05 p.m.

@92
Saying that every character should be included because someone out there may like them is a very lazy reasoning based on assumptions. Every character on the roster should be there because they make the game more fun everyone. Adding in superfluous characters is a waste of developers and gamers time and actually reduces the overall quality of the game when there is a tight schedule involved.

Also, what does next gen have to do with a game that was never on the current gen and may be download only? It's probably being made with a much lower budget than most games.

#92
Ruizzu said on June 18, 2013 at 5:01 p.m.

I believe it was a big mistake to let MS buy rare for 1, and even more so have anything to do with the new KI3. Xbox One is going to flop. EVERYONE saw that at E3. Was a sad thing that u boys got booed for just saying Xbox One...LOL... that should tell you something. All that is going to happen is KI3 is going to get pimped by MS, they care nothing about the gamers point of view... I will be glad when the Xbox goes under "as if it already hasn't"...
