Killer Instinct: Pin Ultimate Edition now available for pre-order through Microsoft Store

Saturday, 12th October 2013 21:03 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Killer Instinct will have three available ways in which to get the game: the free version which launched with Xbox One on November 22, and two other editions: one digital and the other boxed.

As previously reported, the free download comes with one character with the option to purchase additional characters through Xbox Live.

There’s also the previously announced Ultra Edition which comes with eight characters or $39.99 through Xbox Live.

However, now there’s also the Pin Ultimate Edition, which can be pre-ordered through the Microsoft Store that comes with a voucher for a digital copy of the game in a premium case which can be used to display collectible Pinny Arcade pins. It will run you $59.99.

The entire contents consist of:

All Season 1 characters (8)
Season pass for all costumers (8) and accessory packs (16)
Early access to all Season 1 content
Original Killer Instinct Classic Arcade game

Basically, it comes with the content in the digital bundle, and custom designed pins and is a limited edition run.

    $59.99 for 8 characters, an XBLA game and some costume packs? Seriously? Even Capcom isn’t that greedy or stupid.

    Basically it’s a season pass.. All I’ve ever heard about the original Killer Instinct is that it was garbage. Main reason why it was so weird when they announced this game in the first place.

    Pretty funny how they’ve reverted to a 60$ tag when they’ve been touting how cheap it was.

    If it’s 60$ with the season pass (bad arcade game aside) then you’re looking at a 50$ even if you only buy the stuff you want. And once map packs etc. come out…

    For an 8 character fighter, this suddenly got very expensive.

    I’ll take the $40 version.

    @3 Dont even want to touch that but It’s safe to assume you’re just to young to have played it in the arcade? so I’ll let it slide. That or just another PS4 troll as Sony fans tend to be.
    Im buying this game day one for sure and I really want the classic version too but not for 60 dollars. Lets just hope I can contain my self and not give in to their ridiculous prices.

    Will they ever plan to release this on PC ?
    I think this game will face the same fate as Conker remake
