I’ve had my fair share of fighting game experience mostly all done on the SNES, from Street Fighter to Mortal Kombat, but only one really stood out; Killer Instinct!

When you hear this song, it’s time to fight! It’s one of those hype songs I feel that remind me of ‘Eye of the Tiger’ but just in the game version of it. When that guitar kicks in, you feel it!
Cinder has always been my character of choice, quite possibly because that was not only the easiest but the first Ultra combo that I learned!

The Xbox One version of the game can’t compete with how nostalgic this song is, but it is definitely a step up from the original in regards to gameplay. So who’s ready for a challenge?
