Killer Instinct packshot image
All three characters sport some of the most advanced technology ever in a fighting game. All the cloth in Jago’s costume is simulated, to dynamically animate, wrinkle and respond as the fighter moves. Sabrewulf has an elaborate fur system, and Glacius uses multiple layers of transparency and refraction, along with tens of thousands of physics-colliding shards to depict his ice armor and constructs.
