Killer Instinct Lobbies Delayed, Spinal On Course


Double Helix’s Killer Instinct reboot was set to receive an online lobby system by the end of January, but that functionality has been delayed according to Killer Instinct Central. The feature is still due to arrive for the free-to-play fighter, although now at an unspecified later date.

However, easing any concerns is the reveal of Spinal, set to be released in “the next few weeks.” Spinal’s pirating days seem to be continuing into this reboot, donning a notable hat, sword, and rope as he tears through foes. Spinal was notable for being one of the more difficult characters to utilize in the original games, if becoming one of the most promising for those who understood the inner workings of the combo mechanics.
