I’ve slowly been playing through Story Mode, Season 1, and I’ve finished reading all the character bios on the official site (I still need to read Aganos’, and the expanded guest characters Bios in the Definitive Edition Hub), and one thing I’m curious about: This game is a reboot of the original and it’s sequel, correct, and not a proper continuation of those game’s stories?
I ask because multiple times, not one but two Tournaments are mentioned, which do not seem to appear in the game’s actual Story Mode, but of course they were in the original games. Several key points and character moments from the originals are mentioned as well (i.e. Sabrewulf getting metal arms).
So is Killer Instinct (2013) actually a complete reboot of the franchise?
I do like how a lot of the characters are intertwined in their backstories, that’s written quite well.
