    the first KI is still one of my favourite fighting games. was playing the new one waiting for the danger warning for the death moves screen. have they removed them?

    also if i buy the season pass for the new one, do you get the original arcade version of KI? or is it a remake.


    • Adrian Cajili

      If you get the Ultimate edition, you get the Arcade version, and a few builds of it + some other features


      • Bush

        thanks for the answer man. will be buying it for the original alone.
