Hello KI fans!
There was a lot of excitement over our announcement of the Killer Instinct Pin Ultimate Edition and we wanted to take this opportunity to answer some of the most commonly asked questions from the community. We’ll continue to update you here at PlayXBLA.com with the latest details so keep the questions coming!
Killer Instinct Pin Ultimate Edition – In a Nutshell!
Killer Instinct is a game loved by many. Its last release was over 18 years ago (in many countries, it would have reached drinking age by now). At that time, games were only delivered as physical products – you walked/drove/roller-skated to the retailer, waited in line all night, and brought home a shiny box with a cartridge.
Times have changed, welcome to the future. Killer Instinct will be brought to you as a digital download with new content, features and updates delivered on-the-fly. KI showcases one of the most advanced multiplayer engines on any fighting game, silky smooth gameplay and beloved old school characters sitting next to all-new ones. But you still wanted more. You wanted that shiny box.
We heard you. Along comes the Killer Instinct: Pin Ultimate Edition.
This new offering provides a fun, rewarding, physical connection to your digital experience. You get the Ultra Edition of the game (see chart below for details) and a premium tri-fold case which doubles as a display for collectible pins, all exquisitely designed by our friends at Penny Arcade.
Pick up a Pinny Arcade pin and you will understand why. They are premium collectibles that make game art shine (literally!) and it is one of the coolest ways for you to take the Killer Instinct universe with you. You can display your pins on your Pin Ultimate Edition case or stick them on a lanyard, a backpack or even a hat.
The Pin Ultimate Edition offers customers multiple ways to complete their collection. Some people will enjoy getting the pins at real-life events (like PAX East), some will enjoy the challenges associated with in-game and community events, while others will trade with their ‘Pin Pals’.
How do I complete my pin collection?
The Pin Ultimate Edition includes two pins for your collection right out of the box – the Jago character pin and the KI Logo pin.
The rest of your pin collection is divided into ‘Character’ and ‘Engagement’ pins. Here’s how they work:
> A new character pin will be released each month for a total of 8 at the end of the season
> Character pins are available for purchase at the Penny Arcade online store for $14.99*
> A new engagement activity (with corresponding pin) will be released each month for a total of 8 at the end of the season
> Engagement activities will be a combination of in-game and community challenges and in-person events (e.g. PAX East)
> Complete a monthly challenge and we’ll cover the cost of your pin (you cover shipping/handling), or pick one up at any of the in-person events.
> If you missed participating in any of the monthly challenges, no worries, these will also be available for purchase at the Penny Arcade online store for $14.99*
(*) suggested retail price, does not include shipping and handling, subject to change
All pins will be limited in quantities, so make sure you grab them while they last.
