Ultimates or SF style ultras?

Something I don’t quite understand, how are finishers like these:

Allowed to be in a T-rated game:

Yet, KI3 is rated T but it’s new ultimates are pretty much just recycled animations and “tame”?


The times have changed. :wink:

How so?

Things weren’t as strict back then.

So melting someone or shooting someone automatically equals M-rating?

Well, I would certainly hope so!

If you didn’t notice, it was rated t back then but now, the classic games are rated m.

What about being smashed by a wrecking ball and into a sign? Or being tossed out of a sky scraper?

If you really want answers, you need to go to the ESRB site - they dictate what’s okay and what’s not. :wink:

Alright well, I guess these new ultimates are pretty much KI’s version of street fighter 4’s ultra finisher moves. I think KI3 was better off without ultimates then if this is what they turned out to be anyway, or give them a different name at least because what we got are definitely not ultimates.

Great. We get free things and people say that the game was better off even though a large chunk of people have been asking for them -_-


We didn’t get free ultimates, instead we got free KI versions of SF4’s and SF5’s ultra finishers.

I can understand your disappointment, but it’s pretty much what others have said. Standards have changed compared to how they were in the 90’s (heck standards in the 90’s as a whole were more lenient). What could be considered acceptable back then (or in this case T rated), just isn’t the same now if the rating change to the classic games are of any example. So unless the devs want to make the game M rated, this is pretty much as close to a “killing blow” as you’re going to get.

I’m still positive the devs will make the ultimates look cool while still keeping the T rating.

They are very cool indeed, but why are they made out of recycled animations? I don’t think that they should have been classed as ultimates, maybe super ultras or killer ultras but not ultimates.

Personally, I’m fine with ultimates. I just find it interesting that we now, in all, have:

command normals
special moves
shadow moves
super moves (Fulgore, Omen, and Shago)
stage ultras

It’s like Dragon Ball Z. Where does it end!?

But they’re not ultimates though.


You have to keep in mind this is still a budget game so you can’t expect a lot AAA quality stuff here. I’m still happy they were able to give things like this despite not having a big budget.

Who are you to say that? You’re not a developer. They can call it whatever they want, regardless of what you think it should or should not be called. It’s THEIR game; not yours.

Ok… fake ultimates then.
