New York Comic Con is right around the corner, but that doesn’t mean announcements stop. Dynamite Entertainment announced that they will be partnering with the Xbox One franchise Killer Instinct, to create a brand new comic series
The classic Killer Instinct game had a comic book companion, and the 2017 reboot will be doing the same. Dynamite CEO Nick Barrucci discussed his excitement for the project.
“We are thrilled to enter into a partnership with Microsoft Studios with Killer Instinct, As we continue to expand our line of video game tie-in titles, Killer Instinct is a perfect choice with great characters to explore and expand upon. The comics will be the beginning of a publishing program, which we will announce more details around soon! I think fans will be very pleased with what we have coming.”
Earnest Yuen, the executive producer for Killer Instinct at Microsoft had a lot to say about Dynamite Entertainment and fans of the Killer Instinct Franchise.
“Comics is something the Killer Instinct fans have asked for again and again since launch. With the release of our newest expansion, Shadow Lords, players can see that the Killer Instinct cast has some fantastic back stories and there are still more stories to be told.”
“We love Dynamite Entertainment’s work and our team is incredibly excited to have them as a partner to expand upon the KI universe in the upcoming comic series.”
Dynamite Comics continues to provide great video game tie-ins for the future. They plan to announce further details in the coming months as well as in 2017.
