Killer Instinct 2 Arcade Machine


Killer Instinct 2 Arcade Machine

A great machine from my personal collection. Need to sell it to make room for my other games. The game plays great and looks great. There are a few nicks and scratches on it but for its age it looks really good. Machine must be picked up or the buyer must setup shipping. You are welcome to check out the game before pickup but it is sold as is where is. Thanks for looking. Below is the information for Killer Instinct 2 from KLOV.

ConversionThe hard drive and JAMMA PCB from this game can be swapped with those from Killer Instinct without changing the control panel.Game IntroductionEyedol's
death at the hands of Orchid in the previous game accidently set off a
time warp sending everyone back 2000 years and allowed Gargos to escape
from Limbo. Now, 2000 years in the past, warriors that survived Killer Instinct
(1) and several new faces fight for the right to face the Demon Lord
Gargos in combat. Some, like T.J. Combo, just want to get home. Others,
like Tusk, want to bring an end to Gargos and his reign of evil. This
time there is no tournament or prize money, just a fight to the finish
with the fate of the future hanging in the balance.Game PlayAs
with many fighters, achieve two wins and the winner continues on. But
instead of alternating fights, the loser's power is restored while the
winner's power stays the same until knocked out. The game engine is a
lot like the original Killer Instinct but improvements have added
depth to the game. A new power meter was added to store energy for
super moves and super linkers. The auto doubles have been included
again, but there is now an option for manual combos. There are many new
moves and changes made to the old characters. At the end of the fight
you have the option to finish off your opponent much like Mortal Kombat.MiscellaneousLICENSOR: Nintendo
