Since a lot of people agree that this KI is amazing and should continue for a couple more years, an idea came to me that KI4 should be an HD remake… that way people can chose to play one or the other.
Well, this thread is off to a good start.
I’ll try to explain this as short as possible: perhaps not KI4 but some kind of iteration of the original KI but with a better and easier to understand combo system and of course, enhanced graphics. But everything else pretty much should stay the same. I know that this will probably never happen and some of you will tell me “well just play KI 2013 with retro skins only”.
I often feel that KI3 is not true to the first game in some aspects like costumes. For example, I think orchid remains true to her original designs (her new costume is like an enhanced, evolved, upgraded version of her KI1 costume) but someone like jago isn’t, as he went from torn outfit (ninja suit?) to shirtless with baggy pants. I’m not saying his new costume should have been “torn ninja suit but now with armor!” I think it should have some how remained true to his original design. Honestly, the only thing that comes to mind is something similar to his first design but with a tibetan sword and armor that reflects his tibetan training and origin.
Characters I think are true to their original design:
Edit: Forget it. Just about every character is an upgraded version of their original selves except jago and riptor (riptor needed to be more reptilian-ish).
Anyway, I just wasted my time lol. Look, this version of KI is very fun and awesome but it’s just not a completely true spiritual successor to KI1. Maybe I’m just blinded by nostalgia. After almost 3 years of playing KI3, I’m starting to dislike it and well, I guess a game that has been dormant for 17 or so years should stay dormant.
Again, not bashing this game, it’s really fun and awesome, has wonderful, catchy and unforgettable music, flashy and cool ultimate finishers that fit the criteria of the overall image of the game and the netcode is perhaps the best I’ve ever played on. It just also isn’t fun when you get matched up against people who seem to be geniuses, as I’ve played against such people who are seemingly untouchable (might post those matches later).
If anyone knows of any game that has been released within the last 2-3 years or is about to come out soon and is similar to KI1 please let me know so I can check it out.
