This video is fascinating!

Did You Know Gaming takes a look back at the history of the original Killer Instinct and offers some pretty interesting facts about the game's release and development.

The initial arcade release saw great success with some machines raking in over $1,000 weekly. People quickly discovered an infinite combo with Cinder and in order to retain relevance, Nintendo released a team to travel out and patch every last one of the 17,000 cabinets.

It's always fun to learn about character inspiration, difficulties in game development and the embarrassing mistakes that all sit behind the scenes of our favorite games.

Who says history is boring? The "Did You Know Gaming" series is full of videos just like this.
